Post-doctoral position in mathematical physics.
The Mathematical Physics group at the Helsinki University is seeking a post-doctoral researcher in the field of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics. The position is funded through an European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant and will be up to 3 years. The researcher will be working in an active research environment including the Center of Excellence in Analysis and Dynamics. Applicants should send a CV and three letters of recommendation by email to antti.kupiainen@helsinki.fi. Deadline for application is January 31 2012 and position will be available September 1 2012. Earlier start date is also possible.
Jan 31, 2012
In the frame of an ERC advanced grant there are openings for a postdoc and a graduate student at Universite de Geneve with J-P Eckmann. This would be in a range of subjects from non-equilibrium problems to topological dynamics, or perhaps more esoteric subjects such as the nature of language evolution. Interested people should contact J-P Eckmann, Jean-Pierre.Eckmann@unige.ch. The positions would start in April 2012 or a little later if that is convenient for the applicants.

Fall 2012
