The Chair of Topology within the Department of Mathematics at the Technical
University of Munich invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship
supervised by Professor Claudia Scheimbauer as part of the Simons
Collaboration on Global Categorical Symmetries. This is a joint physics and
mathematics research program focused on the interplay between quantum field
theory, topology, higher category theory and representation theory.
Candidates are expected to show outstanding promise in research relevant to
the Collaboration themes. Detailed information about the Collaboration and its
research activities can be found at: https: // scgcs.berkeley.edu.
The postdoctoral fellow will be working within a vibrant, interdisciplinary
and international research environment located on the Garching Campus of the
TU München, and will furthermore have the opportunity to make extended visits
to other collaboration sites, to contribute to joint research activities, and
to participate in collaboration workshops and summer schools.
The position is for 3 years and teaching is optional. The salary is the
standard 100% salary for postdocs according to the Federal German payment
scale TV-L. The ideal starting date is in fall 2022, but can be discussed.
Applications should be made via the following AMS Site:
https: // www. mathjobs.org/jobs/list/19077 and include:
• a cover letter including a few sentences how your work connects to the
Collaboration and/or the research interests of the chair,
