A candidate is expected to conduct research in one of the following areas: Algebraic geometry, Dynamical systems, Combinatorics, Complex analysis, Mathematical Physics and Spectral theory,  Number theory or Partial differential equations.

 

The duration of the stay is 12 months, with a possibility of prolongation for an additional 12 months, beginning during June-August or September 1, 2008, at the latest.

 

An application should contain a  Curriculum Vitae (maximum 3 pages) and a list of publications , a description of research (maximum 3 pages) and two or three letters of recommendation, sent by the recommenders not the applicant.
