Postdoctoral research positions in mathematics and computer science, Warsaw, POLAND


Call for post-doctoral research positions at the Warsaw Center of 
Mathematics and Computer Science.

Warsaw Center of Mathematics and Computer Science (WCMCS) is a joint 
project of two scientific units: the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics 
and Mechanics of the University of Warsaw (MIMUW), and the Institute of 
Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IMPAN). The Center is built 
on the long-standing cooperation between the two units, in both teaching 
and research. The Center was designated as a Leading National Research 
Center (Krajowy Naukowy Osrodek Wiodacy, KNOW) by the Polish Ministry of 
Science and Higher Education in July 2012. The award comes with a 
substantial grant which will provide financing of the Center for the next 
five years. The grant will be used for enhancing the research potential of 
both participating institutions; this includes financing post-doctoral 
positions.

The post-doctoral research positions at the WCMCS are aimed at young

Sciences, http://www.impan.pl

The positions are for 6-12 months, with a possible extension to at most 18 
months, altogether. The salary will be 7000 PLN per month, before taxes. 
In addition, the holder of the position will be eligible for financial
