Subject: Serrapilheira Postdoctoral Fellowship - UFC

Dear colleagues,

I would like to call attention to the following new postdoctoral position.

*Serrapilheira Postdoctoral Fellowship - UFC*

The Department of Mathematics at Universidade Federal do Ceará (UFC)
invites applications for a Serrapilheira Postdoctoral Fellowship in
dynamical systems and ergodic theory. The position is for one year with
start date at any moment between March 2020 and September 2020, with
possibility of extension for another year.

*Qualifications and expectations*

The position is part of the project "Jangada Dinâmica - boosting dynamical
systems in Brazil's Northeastern region", which is funded by Instituto
Serrapilheira and aims to boost dynamical systems and ergodic theory in the
mathematical community of universities located in the Northeastern region
of Brazil. The applicant must have completed a PhD and be qualified for
conducting research in either dynamical systems and/or ergodic theory.
There are NO teaching duties. As part of the program, and to foster
interaction, the fellow shall visit another department of Mathematics in
the Northeast for one month each semester or two months per year. Applications
from underrepresented groups in Mathematics are highly encouraged.


The salary will range from 5000--6000 Brazilian Reais monthly, tax free, in
a twelve month-base calendar, according to the applicant's qualifications.
There will be an extra 5000 Brazilian Reais for each of the two months of
visits to another institution in the Northeast. The salary is more
attractive than those offered by regular Brazilian funding agencies.

*Department of Mathematics at UFC*

The Department of Mathematics at UFC currently holds the highest rank among
Brazilian Mathematics departments. Having a strong history in the field of
differential geometry, during the last 15 years it has developed new
research groups in analysis, graph optimization and, more recently, in
dynamical systems. Currently, the group of dynamical systems has two
members, with expertise on nonuniform hyperbolicity, partial hyperbolicity,
and symbolic dynamics.


UFC is located in the city of Fortaleza, which has approximately 2.5
million inhabitants and is the fifth largest city of Brazil. Located in the
Northeastern region of Brazil, Fortaleza is becoming a common port of entry
to the country, with many direct flights to the US and Europe. Historically
known for touristic reasons, it is nearby beaches with warm water and white
sand dunes, and its cost of living is cheaper than bigger cities like Rio
de Janeiro and São Paulo, thus making the monthly stipend affordable.

*Documentation required*

- CV with publication list

- Research statement

- Two (or more) letters of recommendation.

All documents must be sent to jangadadinamica en gmail.com. The applicant must
send the first two documents, and ask two (or more) professors to directly
send their letters of recommendation.

*Deadline:* December 31, 2019.

*More information:* jangadadinamica en gmail.com.
