Lunds Tekniska Högskola, Matematikcentrum, Matematik LTH

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

LTH forms the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, with approximately 9 000 students. The research carried out at LTH is of a high international standard and we are continuously developing our teaching methods and adapting our courses to current needs.

This position is aimed towards research within analysis and dynamical systems. Primarily, the candidate should connect complex analytic methods with dynamical systems in order to strengthen and develop the research covered by the analysis and dynamical systems group at the Division of Mathematics LTH and Numerical Analysis.

Research topics include: Spectral theory of almost periodic operators, extremal polynomials and complex dynamics, diophantine approximation, smooth ergodic theory (e.g. dimension theory in dynamical systems), combinatorial dynamics etc. However, also other directions of research are possible as long they have clear connections to the analysis and dynamical systems group.
