Job description

The research consortium “Rational points: new dimensions” funded by an NWO Open Competition ENW - XL grant offers a postdoc position in coding theory with algebraic geometry techniques based at the University of Groningen.
As a postdoc, you will contribute to a project in algebraic geometry codes on surfaces and higher dimensional varieties in the context of the research program “Rational points: new dimensions”and have ample freedom to carry out your own research line. You will be part of a collaborative research team led by Martin Bright, Valentijn Karemaker, Ronald van Luijk, Steffen Müller, Marta Pieropan, and Cecília Salgado. There is a light teaching load associated to this position.


University of Groningen


The successful applicant has:

- a completed PhD in mathematics before the starting date of the position
- a background in coding theory, and a previous experience with algebraic geometry codes
- a working proficiency in English, knowledge of the Dutch language is not required.

Conditions of employment

Fixed-term contract: 24 months.

You will be employed by the University of Groningen. You will work together with Cecília Salgado, Valentijn Karemaker, and Steffen Müller, and you will have regular interactions with all consortium members, for instance via our monthly seminars.
Each of the three consortium institutions has a very active algebraic geometry and number theory research group: Groningen, Leiden, Utrecht. You will have ample opportunity to participate in events organised by the consortium as well as other national events. Funding is also available to support travel to conferences and workshops abroad.

We offer you in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities:

- a full-time (1.0 FTE) postdoc position of 2 to 4 years

Faculty of Science and Engineering

The research consortium “Rational points: new dimensions” is a research group on the arithmetic of rational points based at the Bernoulli Institute of the University of Groningen, the Mathematical Institute of Leiden University and the Mathematical Institute of Utrecht University.

The mathematical community in the Netherlands is tight-knit. The consortium members interact regularly with experts at universities other than those involved in the consortium, such as the University of Amsterdam, the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and Radboud University in Nijmegen. These interactions are also facilitated by the monthly Intercity Number Theory Seminar, the Intercity Geometry Seminar, the twice-annual DIAMANT Symposium, and the twice-annual GQT School and Colloquium. We also keep in touch with our colleagues in Belgium through the “Getaltheorie in het Vlakke Land” seminar and the Belgian-Dutch Algebraic Geometry Seminar.

University of Groningen
Since its foundation in 1614, the University of Groningen has enjoyed an international reputation as a dynamic and innovative centre of higher education offering high-quality teaching and research. Balanced study and career paths in a wide variety of disciplines encourage currently more than 36,000 students and researchers to develop their own individual talents. Belonging to the best research universities in Europe and the top 100 universities in the world, the University of Groningen is truly an international place of knowledge.

Within the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE), the Bernoulli Institute conducts research combining theoretical as well as practical aspects of three disciplines, namely Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.

Diversity and inclusion
The research consortium “Rational points: new dimensions” commits to operating in accordance with the values of diversity and inclusion. Everyone deserves to be respected and feel at home in our research community, regardless of differences in background, experiences, perspectives, and identities. These values are reflected by the three host institutions' diversity policies: Groningen, Leiden, Utrecht. Diversity among consortium members enriches academic debate and contributes to the quality of research. We therefore particularly encourage applicants from underrepresented groups to apply.
