Postdoc position
There will be a postdoctoral fellowship available at National University
of Singapore (NUS) for the academic year 2007-08, with posibility of
extension for one or two more years on a competitive basis. Funding
(S$70K = US$45K = EUR35K) comes from Jon Berrick's research grant, so
the fellow is expected to have overlapping research interests with
either Jon or his colleague Jie Wu. Areas of common interest include
links between homotopy theory and braid groups (and/or related groups
such as automorphism groups of free groups, mapping class groups). Via
the plus-construction, there are also links to K-theory.
For further details of the research of Jon and Jie, see

It is likely that other topologists/K-theorists will be visiting NUS
during the year. In particular, there will be an international program
on braids at NUS from May to July 2007
http://www.ims.nus.edu.sg/Programs/braids/index.htm
so the fellowship could start at that time if preferred. For those who
are impressed by such things, NUS again appeared in the top twenty in
this month's Times Higher Educational Supplement ranking of universities
worldwide, reflecting a positive research environment. The position may
include light teaching duties.
Please indicate your interest by emailing Jon at
berrick@math.nus.edu.sg
The position will be filled as soon as possible after 31 January, 2007.
