Job description

Enumerative geometry is the field of algebraic geometry dealing with counting geometric objects satisfying constraints. So far, enumerative geometry largely concerned curve counting. This 2-year postdoctoral position is funded by the ERC Consolidator Grant “Surfaces on fourfolds on the enumerative geometry of surfaces on Calabi-Yau fourfolds and related subjects. This new field has unexpected connections with various areas of mathematics and physics, such as Hodge theory, singularity theory, representation theory, and string theory.


We are looking for an enthusiastic and skilled applicant who possesses the following characteristics:

  • a PhD, or nearly finished, in algebraic geometry or a related field (by the time of appointment);
  • a strong interest in moduli theory, enumerative geometry, or related topics;
  • proficiency in English, both in speaking and writing. Knowledge of the Dutch language is not required.
  • Offer We offer: About the organization

    A better future for everyone. This ambition motivates our scientists in executing their leading research and inspiring teaching. At Utrecht University, the various disciplines collaborate intensively towards major strategic themes. Our focus is on Dynamics of Youth, Institutions for Open Societies, Life Sciences and Pathways to Sustainability. Shaping science, sharing tomorrow.
