Publish Date: Jul 01, 2016

Deadline: Aug 05, 2016

Associate Professor in Mathematics, Several Complex Variables

The Department of Mathematics invites applications for an Associate Professorship in Mathematics, Several complex variables.

Information about the research group:

The department consists of six sections, each section consisting of one or several research groups. The section for Several complex variables, Logic, and Operator algebras (Section 6), which has currently 19 members (permanent staff, emeriti, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows), is seeking an Associate Professor in Mathematics, Several complex variables (SCV).

The group in SCV has two permanent members and the department would like to strengthen the activity in SCV with one additional position. A rather broad label describing the SCV group at the moment is that of holomorphic mappings. This includes various kinds of embedding problems, the Andersen-Lempert theory of automorphisms/ symplectomorphisms, Oka-theory, and  complex dynamics, with natural connections to convexity problems, the dibar-equation, geometry of pseudoconvex domains, and  function algebras. The ideal candidate for a position will be able to  contribute to the above lines of research, and to broaden our scientific profile.

General information about the position:

Applicants must document scientific qualifications in her/his field, equivalent to a Associate professor position. The successful applicant must be able to teach at all levels and to supervise Master and PhD students. 50% of the working time will be devoted to teaching, teaching related activities and administrative duties. The successful applicant may furthermore be required to take on other teaching duties and administrative tasks, by request from the Department or the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. Teaching is given in Norwegian and English. Foreign language speakers will be expected to be able to teach in Norwegian within three years after being hired.

Specific information about the position:

The successful applicant will have a strong research profile demonstrating her/his ability to work independently. Candidates with a fairly recent PhD degree are preferred. She/he must contribute with research in her/his area of specialization. She/he should be open for interdisciplinary scientific cooperation. The appointee will be expected to maintain and further develop our considerable network of national and international academic connections.

Associate Professors must have a basic formal pedagogical competence, and applicants that cannot yet document such competence, are required to acquire this within two years of their start in the position. The university offers a course for this purpose. For details contact the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.

The basis for assessment will be the scholarly production of the applicant, other qualifications, pedagogical or educational, the applicant’s qualifications within leadership and administration as well as the general personal suitability. In ranking the competent applicants, the full range of qualifications will be considered and explicitly assessed. As a general rule shortlisted candidates will be called for interview, and trial lectures as well as other tests may then be conducted.


Pay grade associate professor (position code 1011): 57 - 65 (NOK 483 700 - 560 700 per year, depending on qualifications)

The application must include: 

  • Application letter
  • CV and attachments
  • Up to 10 selected scientific publications the applicant wishes to include in the evaluation
  • List of scientific production with bibliographic references
  • A portfolio containing documentation of teaching experience, capability of external fund raising and other qualifications the applicant wants to have considered
  • A research plan describing the applicant's scientific ambitions for the position

The University of Oslo wants to have more women in permanent academic positions. Women are encouraged to apply. In accordance with the University of Oslo`s equal opportunities policy, we invite applications from all interested individuals regardless of gender or ethnicity.
