Institute of Mathematics and Informatics announces a temporary postdoctoral position

The Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IMI-BAS) announces a temporary postdoctoral position, funded by the Bulgarian Scientific Programme “Enhancing the Research Capacity in Mathematical Sciences” (PIKOM). The duration of the position is 12 months under the programme. The starting date is October 1, 2024, but it is flexible. The working language is English or Bulgarian.

The following research topics are available:

  • Stochastic processes, special functions, exponential functionals
  • Computational topology of solitons
  • Optimal management of constrained distributed systems
  • Birational Geometry
  • Modeling of quality in service systems

The interested candidates should provide a CV, list of publications, and a research statement sent to pdj@math.bas.bg with a copy to director@math.bas.bg   by July 26, 2024. They should also arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent by the referees to the same addresses.

Institute of Mathematics and Informatics announces a Senior Researcher Temporary Position

The Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences offers a 6-month Senior Researcher position in Sofia, Bulgaria, with a possibility for extension.

The starting date is October 1, 2024, but it is flexible. The working language is English.

The approved candidate will be affiliated with the International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia (ICMS-Sofia), which is part of the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and will work in the field of functional analysis and complex analysis. The project includes the study of Hadamard multipliers on spaces of holomorphic functions in complex plane and several variables. These are linear continuous maps such that every monomial is an eigenvector of the map.

Candidates must send a CV and a list of publications to pdj@math.bas.bg with a copy to director@math.bas.bg by July 26, 2024.

ICMS-Sofia organizes Modern Methods in Nonlinear Elliptic and Parabolic PDE International Conference

From May 27 to 31, an international conference Modern Methods in Nonlinear Elliptic and Parabolic PDE will be held in Plovdiv. The event is organized by the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMSSofia) at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, with the financial support of the Simons Foundation.

The goal of the conference is to bring together world-renowned senior and early-career researchers working in the field of elliptic and parabolic PDE and foster discussions gravitating around (though not limited to): regularity theory and its applications, free boundaries, singularity formation, qualitative properties of solutions. The meeting also seeks to provide an opportunity for young scholars from Eastern Europe to engage with cutting-edge research in the area, thus helping to maintain the continuity and strength of our traditions in the area.

The conference will be officially opened on May 27, 2024, by Prof. Julian Revalski, President of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and Director of the International Center for Mathematical Sciences.

IMI announces positions for Leading Researchers at the International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia

The Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (IMI-BAS) announces four temporary (5-year) positions for R4 Leading researchers (Chairs), who are at the career stage at which they are already established leaders with a recognized track record of research achievements. The approved researchers will be affiliated with the International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia (ICMS-Sofia), which is part of the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. The positions are financially supported by Simons Foundation grant and funds from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Bulgaria.

The goal is:

  • acceleration of progress in mathematics,
  • acceleration of ICMS-Sofia reputation worldwide,
  • establishing ICMS-Sofia as a leading regional scientific center producing a pipeline for Bulgarian and international talents,
  • expanding ICMS-Sofia influence to society in Bulgaria at large in outreach activities and integration with industry.

The approved Chairs must establish their own research groups, consisting of an established researcher, a postdoc, and/or a PhD student. The Chairs need to ensure a high international visibility of the research groups obtaining major results in hot areas of mathematics in the first 5 years. The Chair’s contract can be extended for another 5 years or lead to a permanent position in IMI-BAS.

The selection process will be done by a Recruitment committee and the final selection will be approved by the ICMS Advisory Board.

An evaluation by the above committee will be made after the third (Intermediate Report) and fifth year (Final Report). The contracts will be extended upon the committee’s decision.

Payment to the Leading Researcher/Chair: up to 4800 EUR (9388 BGN) per month. The corresponding social insurance contributions due by the employer are not included in the above amount. Competitive salaries will be provided to the team members (senior staff, postdocs and PhD students). IMI-BAS will appoint the Chair and the team members under an employment contract.

Additionally, each research group will be offered an attractive amount of money for visitors and conferences.

The starting date is planned to be September 1, 2024, at the earliest, but it can be negotiated if needed. The working language is English or Bulgarian.

Additional information will be available upon request.

Applications can be made in any field of the contemporary fundamental and applied Mathematics.  There are no restrictions on the applicant’s nationality and gender.

Interested candidates should provide a CV, a list of publications, and a project description (up to 10 pages).  Letters of recommendation are not required but will be considered if provided. Please, send your applications by E-mail to director@math.bas.bg.

Deadline: Applications completed by July 31, 2024 will be given full consideration, although applications will be accepted until all positions are filled.

Vladimir Mitankin from IMI receives a grant from the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme

Part of Horizon Europe, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) are programmes that aim at excellence in research. MSCA is the leading program of the European Union for funding the research work of doctoral and postdoctoral fellows.

The project Generalised Integrality and Applications to Number Theory of Dr. Vladimir Mitankin will be carried out under the scientific supervision of Prof. Ludmil Katzarkov.

Dr. Mitankin investigates classical questions in Diophantine geometry on the existence and the density of points on algebraic varieties using methods from both algebraic geometry and analytic number theory. The focus in the MSCA grant is aimed at semi-integral points, a notion corresponding to rational points satisfying an integrality condition with respect to a weighted boundary divisor. Introduced by Campana and by Darmon, semi-integral points provide at the same time an intermediate notion and a generalization of the notions of rational and integral points. The research aims, on one hand, at further developing the relatively new theory of semi-integral points, on the other hand, at obtaining information about integral points on algebraic varieties inaccessible with classical methods and, lastly, at applying the theory of semi-integral points with the hope of solving some classical problems in number theory.

Vladimir Mitankin is a Sofia University graduate with a master’s degree in number theory under the supervision of Prof. Doychin Tolev and Assoc. Prof. Ivan Chipchakov. He received his PhD training at the University of Bristol in 2017 with Prof. Tim Browning as advisor. Then, he subsequently became a postdoctoral fellow at the Mathematics Institute of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, and the Leibniz University Hannover. Currently, Vladimir works at the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics under the Scientific Programme “Enhancing the Research Capacity in Mathematical Sciences” (PIKOM).
