The Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics (KdVI) of the University of Amsterdam invites you to apply for a PhD position in Algebraic and Arithmetic Geometry. There are two projects available.
One project is under supervision of Lenny Taelman. This position is part of the ERC Consolidator grant 'Zeta functions and Fourier--Mukai transforms'. This is a project aiming to uncover the delicate relations between two central areas of algebraic geometry: derived categories of coherent sheaves, and arithmetic algebraic geometry.
The other project is under supervision of Arno Kret. This position is part of the VIDI grant 'Shimura varieties and the Langlands conjecture'. This project is about a detailed study of the arithmetic of Shimura varieties modulo prime numbers, by using the Langlands-Kottwitz method.
What are you going to do?
- perform research on Algebraic and Arithmetic Geometry;
- be part of the research programme Algebra, Geometry and Mathematical Physics and interact with its senior and junior members;
- contribute to educational programmes at the University of Amsterdam.
What do we require?
- A Master’s degree in mathematics with a strong background in algebraic geometry;
- excellent writing and communication skills in English;
- commitment and a cooperative attitude.
Experience in teaching is a plus.
A temporary contract for 38 hours per week for the duration of 4 years (the initial contract will be for a period of 18 months and after satisfactory evaluation it will be extended for a total duration of 4 years). This should lead to a dissertation (PhD thesis). We will draft an educational plan that includes attendance of courses and (international) meetings. The starting date will be 1 September 2021.
The salary will be €2,395 to €3,061 (scale P) gross per month, based on a full-time contract of 38 hours a week. This is exclusive 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% end-of-year bonus. A favourable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants. The Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities is applicable.
