Dynamics at HUJI

Dynamical Systems Theory

    • The study of Dynamical Systems emerged from classical 19th and 20th century physics as an abstraction of systems that change over time. Today the discipline has evolved into a rich and independent theory, with connections to many other branches of mathematics, including number theory, combinatorics, analysis, random walks and random matrix products, fractal geometry and geometric measure theory, information theory, Lie groups and discrete groups, descriptive set theory, computation and complexity theory, complex analysis, and mathematical finance. The dynamical systems group at the Hebrew University has taken a central role in the development of the theory since the early 1960s, and includes many of the leading researchers in the field today.

Postdoctoral positions

The Einstein Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is soliciting applications for postdoctoral positions for the academic year 2018/19. Candidates must hold a PhD in mathematics, or expect to be awarded one by the end of 2017, and at the time of appointment must be no more than 5 years from receiving their PhD.

The positions are pure research positions and do not carry teaching duties. Funding is available through faculty members' research grants, Lady Davis Fellowships, or other external sources. Support for academic travel and other expenses may be available.

Applications should be sent to the email below and should include:

Name of prospective host.
Curriculum Vitae.
Publication list.
3 letters of recommendation, to be sent directly by the author of the letter (not the applicant).

Applications will be considered starting December 15, 2017, and continue until positions are filled. Note that applications to the Lady Davis foundation must be made by December 31, 2017, and must be submitted jointly with the host.
