The Department of Mathematics at King’s College London is advertising a permanent Lectureship in the area of geometry with application deadline the 27th of July.
Further information can be found at:
King’s College London, part of the University of London, is based in central London with its mathematics department located in the Strand campus, next to the river Thames and surrounded by theatres and art galleries.
More information about King’s College London can be found on http://www.kcl.ac.uk/about/
Information on the department and its research groups can be found on http://www.kcl.ac.uk/schools/pse/maths/
For those not familiar with British academic ranks, my understanding is that a permanent lectureship is the first stage leading to a professorship; and that the term “professor” at a British University is far more prestigious than at an American one.
I haven’t been to King’s College myself, but I am a frequent user and admirer of Konni’s work on total positivity. Looking through their department, I see a lot of a lot of geometry and representation theory, including classical Lie Theory, mapping class groups, Langlands, quantum groups and higher category theory. I also see a lot of number theory/arithmetic geometry, including Diamond, and a lot of mathematical physics. If you like the Secret Blogging Seminar, you might fit in very well there.
