The last century of research has led the Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University to acquire a prominent place in Scandinavian mathematics. The department consists of three divisions: Mathematics, Mathematical statistics, and the recently formed Computational mathematics. The research in the division of mathematics include algebra, geometry and combinatorics, analysis and logic. The research in mathematical statistics include probability theory and statistical inference theory, with applications in biostatistics, climatology, econometrics, finance and insurance. Computational mathematics is a new direction for the department, with activities in computational biology, stochastic modelling, scientific computing for climatology, and logic of programs. During the first six years, the main workplace for this position will be at the Science for Life Laboratory. The formal employment will be at the Department of Mathematics.
In order to qualify for the position as assistant professor, the applicant must have completed a doctoral degree computer science, mathematics or related fields in Sweden or an equivalent degree from another country. In the first instance, an applicant should be considered who has received such a degree no more than five years before the deadline for applications. However, an applicant who has received such a degree earlier may be considered under special circumstances.
All teaching positions at Stockholm University require the ability to collaborate and the general ability and suitability to perform one’s duties.
In the appointment process, special attention will be given to research skills. Thereafter, attention will be given to the relevance of planned research within the SciLifelab profile. Teaching skills will also be considered.
The assessment of research skills will focus primarily on merits within the subject area of the position.
