The Mathematics Department at the National University of Colombia in
Bogota is trying to push forward its Ph.D. Program in Mathematics. In
order to attract competent new faculty members, it announces an
international competition for regular faculty positions. The selection
is based only on the evaluation of the curriculum vitae, on
publications, on letters of recommendation of known mathematicians and
on a proposal of the activity he plans to carry out in Colombia. It is
open to Ph.D aged 25 to 45 with very good promise or experience in
research represented by papers published in known journals and strong
commitment of teaching at the Ph.D. level. Willingness to help
students with their dissertations is very much desirable. The  
selected candidates will be granted an initial contract of one year at
the associate professor level. The salary is close to US $ 1,600 a
month (after taxes) but payment is for 15 months a year (This is
equivalent to about US $ 2,200 a month stipend in the USA). The
nature of the position is tenure track, but there is a one year
provation period and a Faculty evaluation of performance at the end of
that period.  The candidate does not have to know Spanish. However,
Spanish is the official language in Colombia and it is expected the
winners of the contest will learn some Spanish during their first year
in Colombia.
Partial Differential Equations, Logic, Category
Theory, Lie Algebras and Lie Groups belong to its priorities but
candidates in Commutative Algebra, Dynamical Systems, Ordinary
Differential Equations, Special Functions and Orthogonal Polynomials,
Numerical Analysis, General Topology and Number theory are welcome.
