Qualification Details

Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.

Assessment criteria The degree must have been completed at latest before the employment decision is made, but no more than three years before the closing date. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances. Special reasons refer to sick leave, parental leave, elected positions in trade unions, service in the total defense, or other similar circumstances as well as clinical attachment or service/assignments relevant to the subject area.

In the appointment process, special attention will be given to research skills in the fields mentioned above.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The position will be associated with the project `Symmetries of manifolds and equivariant algebraic geometry', funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The main objective of the

project is to explore an equivariant version of chromatic homotopy theory, relating equivariant cohomology theories, group actions on finite complexes, bordism of G-manifolds and the algebraic geometry of equivariant formal groups. Candidates in algebraic/geometric topology or homotopy theory are especially encouraged to apply.

Main responsibilities The main responsibility is to carry out research. The position also includes some teaching duties (up to 20 %), which may include supervision of students.
