Postdoctoral positions:

The Centre for Symmetry and Deformation  at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, yearly invites for applications for several attractive postdoc positions, with a duration of one to three years. The salary is approx EUR60000/year, subject to a low tax rate, and the teaching load is around two quarter (half-semester) courses a year, primarily related to the applicants research.

The yearly application deadline is around November 15, with starting date usually September 1 the following year.

The Centre for Symmetry and Deformation is expecting to fill several PhD-studentships, to work with any member of the group. The PhD-program in Copenhagen is a 3-year program, with entering PhD-students expected to hold the equivalent of a masters degree. The fellowships are very attractive, with a yearly salary of around EUR36000/year plus pension benefits.

Students who have not completed the equivalent on a Danish masters degree, can occasionally be given the option of enroling in a concurrent masters and PhD-program with a total duration of up to 5 years (depending on prior course credits). Students seeking this option should also apply through the regular PhD call. 

There are two yearly application deadlines in mid November and mid April, with starting date usually the following fall (spring admission may also be possible).

Externally funded stays:

Excellent researchers from abroad, at all levels from PhD student to professor, regularly spend sabbaticals or researcher training stays at the centre, and we also serve as host institution for a diverse range of external fellowships. If you would like to visit the centre on an external grant, you are encouraged to contact us as early in the process as possible, as we may be able to offer practical assistance in various ways - in almost all cases such a visit is coordinated through a local scientific host.
