Postdoctoral position at IMPAN, Gdansk

The research group led by professor Grigor Sargsyan at the Institute of Mathematics of
Polish Academy of Sciences in Gdansk, Poland is seeking highly qualified candidates
for a three year postdoctoral position in the NCN WEAVE-UNISONO project entitled
Classifying Derived Models of the Axiom of Determinacy which starts November 1st
2022 and is funded by the National Science Center. The focus of the project is the
classification of the derived models. The generał area of the project is set theory, and
within set theory it lies in the intersection of determinacy theory, forcing techniques,
inner model theory and large cardinals.


Postdoctoral programs: Fondation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris – deadline December 1 2021

The Fondation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris provides funding for a number of post-doctoral fellowships in all areas of mathematics and theoretical computer science for the 2022-2023 academic year. Appointed fellows will hold one or two-year positions in affiliated research laboratories, starting in October 2022.

For more information please see here.

There is also a Cofund program MathinGreaterParis offerining postdoctoral fellowships in Paris.

The deadline for applications is December 1 2021.

If you are interested in applying in logic and set theory, please contact: Boban Velickovic

Postdoctoral position at the University of Bristol

Deadline: Midnight 13th May 2021
There is a 30 Month Postdoctoral position available in Set Theory at the University of Bristol.

Further particulars and how to apply:

The University of Bristol seeks outstanding candidates for a Research Associate in Set Theory, position tenable from 31st August 2021 (fixed latest start date) for a duration of maximum 30 months. The successful candidate will become a member of the Institute for Pure Mathematics within the School of Mathematics in Bristol, and will work with Philip Welch.

This research position requires the minimum expertise of a candidate with a completed PhD in Set Theory to conduct investigations in problems associated with Welch’s EPSRC funded research grant Graphs on Generalized Baire Spaces.  There has been a surge of interest in recent years on extending the descriptive set theory of Baire space to spaces of the form kappa^kappa for kappa a regular cardinal. The main focus of the project is on the interaction of descriptive set theoretic notions at this analogous level, Inner Model Theory, infinitary game theoretic methods and forcing axioms. Accordingly candidates will be expected to have particular expertise in one or more of these areas.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.

Please note that it is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure their referees send a letter of reference by email to before the advert closes and please can we ask you add the vacancy reference number in the email title.

Two postdoctoral positions in Norwich, Deadline: 21 Jul 2020

Two postdoctoral positions in large cardinals and the axiom of choice, Norwich (England), Deadline: 21 Jul 2020

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral research positions to work 
with Dr Asaf Karagila at the University of East Anglia on the project 
“Understanding the axioms: the interactions of the Axiom of Choice with 
large cardinal axioms” funded by UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship 

The project aims to better understand the tools currently missing for 
consistency results related to large cardinals without the axiom of 
choice. Specifically, improving upon the basic tools for lifting 
elementary embeddings to symmetric extensions, and the iterations thereof. 
Successful candidates will have (or be closed to submitting) a PhD in a 
relevant area of mathematics, most likely set theory, although not 
necessarily with focus on results concerning large cardinals or the axiom 
of choice. For any questions about the posts or the research project, 
please contact Dr Asaf Karagila,

Applicants should have a relevant PhD (or be about to obtain) or 
equivalent professional experience in the research area and be able to 
fulfil all essential elements of the person specification.

These full time posts are available from 15 September 2020 or as soon as
possible thereafter. The positions are initially for a fixed term of 24 months
initially but may be extended for upto 21 additional months.

The School is an equal opportunities employer and we welcome all applicants,
regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religion or
sexual orientation. All appointments are made on merit. Our policies and
practices are designed to encourage talented people, whatever their background,
to work and study here. Work-life balance, family friendly policies and staff
benefits are described at

Postdoc opportunity in Paris

The Paris Region Fellowship Programme (ParisRegionFP) is an EU co-funded Marie Sklodowska Curie Action (MSCA) in the frame of European Commissions H2020 programme that will strengthen the research capacity and international influence of the Paris Region, in France. The two main challenges of the 5-year programme starting in January 2021 are to :

  • Recruit a total of 52 international leaders of all nationalities at post-doctoral positions in research and innovation, covering a large panel of disciplines
  • Provide intersectoral mobility, specifically created professional training and career development measures for these experienced researchers

The first call with a deadline in October, 21st, 2020 will recruit 26 researchers for 2-year post-doctoral fellowships. The researchers will design and implement their original research project in a first-class research group of their choice belonging preferably to one of the 13 “Domain of Major Interest” (DMI) labels endorsed by the Paris Region. The DMIs are key research sectors on which the Paris Region focuses policy support and investments to strengthen its international attractiveness and intersectoral mobility. Mathematics is one of the 13 DMIs .

Candidates in set theory are encouraged to contact Boban Velickovic.
