KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
The postdoctoral scholar should work under supervision by and in collaboration with professor Hedenmalm, with the aim to deepen the understanding of Coulomb gas in the plane and also related determinantal processes. The achieved results will be published in international mathematics journals. In addition to the research activity it is expected that the postdoc should participate in the basic education of undergraduate or graduate students at the rate 20%.
What we offer
As a person you are motivated to collaborate with your colleagues, and to work together towards solving outstanding scientific issues. We are happy to see that you have a documented interested in random gas models, alternatively competence in mathematical analysis which may be applied to analyze those models. Here we may mention e.g. the asymptotic analysis of reproducing kernels. Especially commendable is grasp of the methods that have been used to analyze the energy optimality of lattice configurations in certain dimensions.
Great emphasis will be placed on personal competence and suitability.
