Job description
The research consortium “Rational points: new dimensions”, funded by an NWO Open Competition ENW -- XL grant, offers a postdoc position in arithmetic geometry based at Leiden University or Utrecht University. As a postdoc you will contribute to one of the projects 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. The position comes with light teaching duties.


Leiden University


You are expected to have completed a PhD in mathematics before the starting date of the position. Furthermore, you should be interested in one or more of the following topics: rational and p-adic points on Fano varieties or K3 surfaces, local-global principles, Hilbert property, Campana points. A working proficiency in English will be necessary. Knowledge of the Dutch language is not required.

Conditions of employment

You will be employed either by Leiden University or by Utrecht University. You will work together with at least two consortium leaders and 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: GroningenLeidenUtrecht. 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:

In addition to the employment conditions laid down in the CAO for Dutch Universities, the proposed home institutions have a number of own arrangements ranging from professional development and leave arrangements to sports.

About the organisation
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.
