Postdoctoral position in an Israel Science Foundation funded project in areas of Fractal Geometry and Ergodic Theory

Host: Prof. Boris Solomyak, Bar-Ilan University.

Detailed description: the main projects we are interested in have to do with (a) fractal-dimensional properties of sets and measures, (b) ergodic-theoretic and spectral properties of translation flows, interval exchanges, substitution and tiling dynamical systems, aperiodic order. However, we may also pursue other research interests in the broader area of Fractals and Dynamics.

Benefits: Job is academic with a competitive salary and no teaching. Other top Israeli institutions such as the Hebrew University, Tel-Aviv University, the Weizmann Institute, and the Technion are easily accessible by public transportation, and interaction with them during the post-doc is encouraged and can be very beneficial.

Duration: The position is for up to 3 years, though time-length and starting date are flexible. Short-term applications for periods starting from 3 months will also be considered.

Application process: The application materials should be sent by e-mail to and should include:

Curriculum vitae
List of publications
Research statement (2-3 pages)
Three recommendation letters, addressing research, which should be sent directly by the recommenders.

Applications will be considered on an ongoing basis until the position is filled.
