Postdoc opportunity at Aalto University

Postdoctoral researcher in stochastics
Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis
Aalto University, Finland

Aalto University is a new university with over a century of experience. Created from a high-profile merger between three leading universities in Finland – the Helsinki School of Economics, Helsinki University of Technology and the University of Art and Design Helsinki – Aalto University opens up new possibilities for strong multidisciplinary education and research. The university has 20 000 students and a staff of 5,000 including 350 professors.

The stochastics research group at the Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis is currently undergoing a period of regeneration, as new associate and assistant professors have been employed to replace previous long-term faculty, and several new young researchers are being recruited with the aim of significant growth. To strengthen this line of development, we are now seeking to hire a postdoctoral researcher with a PhD in mathematics or a related area.

The postdoctoral researcher will carry out research in collaboration with the stochastics research group, with a small amount of teaching duties included. The salary is competitive, based on experience and qualifications, and includes occupational health and a travel budget for international conferences and workshops. The position is for one year with a possible extension for another year, starting preferably in September 2014 and no later than January 2015.
