We are happy to announce that there is an opening for a tenure-track position in mathematical logic in the mathematics department at the University of Torino, Italy. The prospective applicant should have a strong background in any field of mathematical logic.
Tenure will be decided after three years, and is subordinate to the candidate having obtained the “Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale”, the Italian habilitation for being an associate professor in mathematical logic.
In order to apply there is a number requirements to be fulfilled, which involve several of delicate bureaucratic steps to be undertaken right away.
There is also a number of issues regarding the duties which come along with the position one must be aware before applying.
The application period will last one month and will be announced in the next two months, while the position will start in early 2019—all the relevant deadlines are not yet known.
Those willing to apply should contact any one of us at their earliest convenience, in order to get the relevant information.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and the Royal Swedish Academy of Music have awarded this year’s Rolf Schock Prizes to four outstanding individuals.
More information can be found on the announcement of the award on the website of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. The following is an excerpt.
Saharon Shelah, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, is rewarded with the 2018 Rolf Schock Prize in Logic and Philosophy,
“for his outstanding contributions to mathematical logic, in particular to model theory, in which his classification of theories in terms of so-called stability properties has fundamentally transformed the field of research of this discipline.”
Saharon Shelah has made fundamental contributions to mathematical logic, particularly in model theory and set theory. In model theory, Shelah developed classification theory, concerning the classification of first-order theories in terms of properties of their classes of models. The classes of models of so-called stable theories have structural properties that can be characterised in geometrical terms, while the class of models of an “unstable” theory lacks structure. Most of contemporary research in model theory builds on Shelah’s work. Shelah has also made decisive contributions to set theory, including the development of a new variety of the forcing method and remarkable results in cardinal arithmetic, and he has solved deep problems in other areas, such as algebra, algebraic geometry, topology, combinatorics, computer science, and social choice theory. Shelah has had, and still has, an indisputable and exceptional position in mathematical logic, particularly in model theory. He is almost unbelievably productive, with seven books and more than 1100 articles to date.
The international Doctoral Training in Mathematical Sciences in Paris – MathInParis – Cofunded by Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions offers 40 PhD fellowships within the framework of the European Horizon 2020 program “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes”.
This project has received funding from the European Uninion’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement n°754362
The main features of the program is to enhance the potential and future career perspective of young researchers by offering :
1- an extremely attractive place in FSMP network for international brilliant students planning to prepare a PhD in mathematics
2- a strengthened advising
3- a broadened support for career development
1. Paris is indeed the city with the highest concentration of professional researchers and one of the main nodes of international research with tremendous scientific opportunities both in academic and industrial framework. FSMP is the largest network of mathematical institutions in the world, gathering all thematics in applied and fundamental mathematics as well as theoretical computer science in interaction with other sciences. In this very stimulating inter-disciplinary environment FSMP has a strong partnership with industries and support joint PhD fellows.
2. MathsinParis students follow the doctoral training research, participate to laboratory and thematic seminars following the PhD thesis topic decided with their advisor*, they are followed by a tutor** who has an external vision of the thesis progress and a external advisor*** who organize a mandatory 2/3 months abroad internship. In addition FSMP support various activities as presentation of scientific progress in a « Restitution day » or the participation at least one research school for year.
3. MathInParis Doctoral program structures also a wide range of non research oriented activities as training session for professional insertion with help of Adoc Talent Management and attending specific day as MathInParis Conference (Journée carrière des mathématiques) or Maths Jobs Forum.
The FSMP team guarantees a dedicated assistance for visa issues, housing, health, banking, etc. Furthermore, fellows will be affiliated to the French Social Security during the stay.
