RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIP : Computational Group Cohomology
Duration: 24 months
Pay scale: EG 13 TV-L (Ost)
The Mathematical Institute at the University of Jena seeks to appoint a
Research Assistant (Wissenschaftliche[r] Mitarbeiter[in]) to work on a
project in computational group cohomology funded by the German Research
Foundation (DFG).
This full-time post will last for 24 months and is available immediately.
The German public employee pay scale EG 13 TV-L (Ost) will apply.
The main duties of the post consist of research and software development
in computational group cohomology. One project goal is the compilation of
a database containing the cohomology rings of all groups of order 128.
You should hold a mathematics PhD and have extensive programming
experience in computational aspects of homological algebra, commutative
algebra or group theory. You should be well acquainted with homological
algebra and at least one of the areas commutative algebra and finite group
theory.
Familiarity with the cohomology of finite groups would be advantageous, as
would be experience with more than one of the relevant computer algebra
systems. The ideal candidate would also know how to design software
packages.
If there is a tie for the most suitable candidate then preference will be
given to a handicapped applicant.
Applications including a full CV should be sent to the following address
by post or by email, and should arrive on 3 April 2007 at the latest.
