Postdoctoral Fellowship in Representation Theory - Université Clermont Auvergne (Clermont-Ferrand, France)

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in Representation Theory at Université Clermont Auvergne, in the Laboratoire de Mathématiques Blaise Pascal (Clermont-Ferrand, France).

The position is for two years, with a net salary of approximately 2000 euros per month. The successful candidate will not have any teaching obligations and will have financial support for invitations and travel. The expected starting date is September 2018, but a slightly earlier or later date might be possible.

The position is funded by the European Research Council project ModRed "The geometry of modular representations of reductive algebraic groups" of Simon Riche. The main topic of this project is the new perspectives on representation theory of reductive algebraic groups over fields of positive characteristic offered by recent progress on parity sheaves and Soergel bimodules due to Williamson, Elias-Williamson, Juteau-Mautner-Williamson or Achar-Riche among others, and the connection to representations of reductive groups obtained in work of Riche-Williamson and Achar-Riche.

This position will be an opportunity to join an active group of young researchers in this area, and will provide numerous opportunities for collaboration.

Applications including a CV, a research statement, and a copy of publications not available on line (if any) should be sent to Applicants should also arrange for up to 2 letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address.

The deadline for application is Dec. 31st, 2017, but later applications might be considered until the position is filled.
