Moduli spaces of sheaves on algebraic varieties have interesting applications to many fields ranging from 19th century enumerative geometry to quantum field theory (Yang-Mills theory). Several recent developments led to new directions in the field, such as K-theoretic invariants, real enumeration, and invariants of Calabi-Yau 4-folds. The PhD project explores various new problems through a combination of new and recent techniques. This PhD position in algebraic geometry is funded by NWO Vidi grant VI.Vidi.192.012 (Moduli of sheaves: new directions).
We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and skilled applicant who is expected to have finished an MSc in mathematics with top grades. It is a strong advantage when the applicant has taken a basic algebraic geometry course or has done an MSc thesis on algebraic geometry. The applicant is expected to have strong analytic skills. A decent level of English is required.
The candidate is offered a full-time position for four years. The gross salary is in the range between €2,325 and maximum €2,972 (scale P according to the Collective Employment Agreement of the Dutch Universities) for a full-time employment.
