Visiting research fellowships General:
Advanced Studies and Research Regional Mathematical Centre of the Southern Federal University ( offers 1-2 visiting research positions in mathematics with a flexible start date (see below) at a postdoc level or higher.

This announcement describes a preliminary offer. We do not have specific deadlines for application and for start date of the position. This depends on the fund’s availability and on the fact of having a successful candidate who meets the criteria below. When we approve a suitable candidate, then start and end dates will be agreed mutually in each case. The search will continue until we fill one or two positions.

Southern Federal University offers standard employee benefits and accommodation at University guest residence in walking distance from the Mathematical Center and Mathematical Institute with lowered monthly rental payment around 8 300 Russian Rubles.

The priority will be given to the strong candidates with background in analysis (function theory, operator theory, harmonic analysis: real and complex variable methods). High publication activity is expected.

Age requirements:
Candidate must be either under 35 years for a PhD holder on the date of the application (there must be less than 5 years period since PhD defense) or under 40 years for those PhD’s who possess habilitation or any equivalent second scientific degree or who recently held a Full Professor or equivalent position (in later case 5 years rule does not apply).

Main responsibilities:
1. Research activities with high publication outcome;
2. Participation in conferences, seminars, and other events;
3. Grants attraction, building-up research contacts;
4. Development of own scientific and educational projects would be an asset;
5. Engagement in the activities of the Mathematical Center is expected..

Salary, benefits and additional funds.
Monthly salary up to 125 000 Russian rubles according to skills of the candidate. There will be additional payments based on activities (scientific results) of the research fellow. Travel support will be available for attending Russian and international conferences. Additional funds for inviting visitors for seminars and research collaboration will be available as well.

Application documents:
1. CV, including research publications list;
2. Summary of research project;
3. Two letters of recommendation sent directly to the address below.

Submission of application and contacts:
Please have your application documents in PDF format sent at e-mail (Pichugina Olga). Letters of recommendation must be received directly from your references. Applications are usually reviewed within two weeks of receipt. Questions may also be addressed to the head of the Mathematical Center, Prof. Alexey Karapetyants at e-mail:
