[DMANET] Posdoc position in Discrete Mathematics at University of Hamburg

We invite applications for Postdoc positions in Discrete
Mathematics in the group of Professor Mathias Schacht at the
University of Hamburg.

The position is fully funded through the ERC Consolidator Grant
"Problems in extremal and porbabilistic combinatorics". The salary grade
is according to 100% TV-L 13 (the standard rate for junior scientific
staff at German universities) and there are no teaching obligations.

Research within the project concerns extremal problems for hypergraphs
and for sparse random and pseudorandom discrete structures. A solid
background and knowledge in extremal and probabilistic combinatorics is
therefore desirable. But we are also inviting applications of
candidates working in related fields in Discrete Mathematics or
Theoretical Computer Science.

The starting date is negotiable and we are interested to fill the
position as soon as possible.

Applications containing at least a cover letter, a cv and a list of
references should be submitted by January 31, 2018 preferably
electronically in one PDF-file to


Prof. Mathias Schacht
Universität Hamburg
Fachbereich Mathematik
Bundesstr. 55
20146 Hamburg
