A selection announcement has been published to award n.1 research grant for the research project entitled "New directions in sub-Riemannian geometry: submanifolds, curvature bounds, hypoelliptic PDEs" to be conducted at the Department of Mathematics "Tullio Levi-Civita" under the supervision of Prof. Davide Bariari, who is the Research Project Supervisor.

The purpose of this research grant, which is funded by the Project STARS for an amount of euro 32.000 is to conduct research activity on the following topics

-) the study of curvature invariants of submanifolds of a sub-Riemannian manifold

-) develop a unifying metric theory of curvature bounds including sub-Riemannian structures

-) the study of geometric hypoelliptic PDEs such as Schrodinger and heat equation

therefore experience in at least one of the following field is required: differential geometry, optimal transport, PDEs

Salary: 32000 EUR gross per year

Interviews: May 05, 2023 at 9.00 via Zoom

Tentative starting date: September 1, 2023
