Postdoctoral position in sub-Riemannian geometry, STARS project at UNIPD

created by barilari on 22 Mar 2022

Deadline: 21 apr 2022

NewSRG is a 2-years project funded by the STARS Project of University of Padova, with P.I. Davide Barilari. The project is starting on March 15, 2022.

The project offers a Post-Doc position to join the team at the “Dipartimento di Matematica Tullio Levi-Civita” of University of Padova.

The main goal of the project is to investigate “New Directions in sub-Riemannian Geometry”, especially those related with the following topics:

• curvature invariants of submanifolds of a sub-Riemannian manifold

• weak notions of curvature bounds valid for sub-Riemannian manifold

• geometric hypoelliptic PDEs such as heat and Schrödinger equations.

A successful candidate needs to have a strong background in at least one of the following topics:

• Sub-Riemannian Geometry • Geometric Control Theory • Partial Differential Equations

The duration of the contract is 18 months. The tentative starting date is between September 1,2022 and October 1, 2022. The gross salary is 31.000 Euros per year.
