Postdoc Hitchin-Ngo Laboratory

The Instituto de Ciencias Matemáticas (ICMAT-Institute of Mathematical Sciences)in Madrid has just launched its Research Labs Programme, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science. The Hitchin-Ngo Lab is an initiative of the Algebraic Geometry and Mathematical Physics group at ICMAT led by Oscar García-Prada. This Lab will be chaired jointly by Professors Nigel Hitchin and Ngô Bảo Châu for the period 2021–2023. Its main goal is to foster interaction and collaboration in research areas in the interface of Geometry and Physics close to the interests of the chairs and the ICMAT group (see the Lab website). There will be periods of intense activity around the visits of the chairs to ICMAT, and other regular activities, all funded by the Lab.

Within this framework, ICMAT offers one one-year postdoctoral appointment for a researcher with an excellent curriculum who wishes to pursue postdoctoral research at ICMAT. The potential candidate will have research interests compatible with the themes of the Lab.

The starting date will be between 1 October and 31 December 2021.

Shortlisted applicants may be interviewed (online) as part of the application process.
