A post-doctoral researcher position

under the supervision of Jarosław Buczyński in collaboration with other team members listed on the project webpage.
Details and conditions:
A successful researcher will receive a gross salary of approximately 7100PLN per month (if all taxes and insurance fees are paid in Poland, then the net salary should be approximately 5500PLN). In addition, the researcher will be granted a limited access to research costs, such as travel to conferences or books. The postdoctoral fellow must respect the NCN rules of funding, including those listed at pages 3-4 of this document. In particular, no other salary or scholarship from NCN is allowed at the same time as his/her employement in the project (page 4, item (a)). Similarly, the fellow should not receive any salary from grants of other institutions. Former PhD students of the PI (Jarosław Buczyński) should not apply (page 4 item (b)). Customary extensions of the seven year period after PhD apply in case of parenthood breaks (footnote 5 on pages 3-4). The succesful candidate will be a full-time employee at IMPAN and is not allowed to hold other employments (unless on an unpaid leave) at the same time. He or she will become a member of Department of Algebra and Algebraic Geometry and (in addition to conducting research fitting into the project topics) he or she is expected to actively participate in the regular activities of the department.

The position comes with no teaching duties.

Each application should contain a research plan and a CV with a list of publications. In addition, the applicant is required to arrange one or two recommendation letters to be sent directly by the recommendator. Please also indicate your choice of starting date and for how long period do you apply.

For full consideration the applications should be submitted before May 10, 2021 via e-mail to the principal investigator of the project Jarosław Buczyński,, with subject line containing the project abbreviation "[CoCoMaGeS]". All other related inquiries should also be sent in the same way.

The applications will be analysed by the committee of Jarosław Buczyński (chair), Elisa Postinghel, and Zach Teitler. The committee reserves the right to interview the best candidates prior to the decision. The decisions should be sent around June 1, 2021.

We particularly welcome applications from women and members of underrepresented minority groups.
