Postdoctoral position in set theory, Torino, ITALY


There is an opening for a post doc position in set theory in the 
department of mathematics of Torino university starting at the earliest 
May 1st 2014 and finishing imperatively August 31th 2015. Applicants are 
required to be less than 35 and must have earned their Ph.D. title. It is 
also required to the applicants to have at least one publication in a peer 
reviewed journal in the last five years. The net salary is slightly more 
than 1400 euros per month. The post doc will join the logic group of the 
department which consists of Matteo Viale, Alessandro Andretta, Daisuke 
Ikegami (set theory), Domenico Zambella (model theory), Riccardo Camerlo 
(Torino polytechnical university - set theory). The selection of 
applicants will be based on an evaluation of the CV, of the publication 
records, and of their interests of research which must be in set theory. 
It is possible to file online the applications creating an account on the 
italian ministry of education website. If you intend to apply write to in order to get detailed information on the filing 
procedure. Unfortunately due to the policy of our country on immigration 
(which I personally disapprove) non EU-citizen will require several months 
in order to get their working visa and be able to start their position. 
They should thus consider this bureaucratic issue when deciding whether to 
apply for the position. For further inquiries and questions do not 
hesitate to write to
