Mathematics Research Position at U. of Crete

Job Opportunities Directory - Previous Article - Next Article

September 26, 1997

The Analysis and Logic group at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Crete, Greece, is seeking candidates for a 3-4 year research position funded jointly by the General Secretariat of Research and Technology (GSRT) and the European Union. Funding is confirmed only after the candidate's name is specified, hence we are looking for an exceptionally good person in order to strengthen the chances of success of our application to the GSRT (the announcement of the GSRT itself follows at the end of this message).

The candidates should

  • work in the general area of Analysis or Logic (this should be interpreted broadly)
  • have a minimum of two years of postdoctoral experience.
  • reside currently outside Greece
  • be able to speak Greek

There are no teaching requirements and the salary is slightly less than that of an Assistant Professor. Funding for supporting one graduate student will also be available. In very exceptional cases we might consider hiring a more senior person (at a higher salary).

The succesful candidate will be able to conduct independent research in one of the most dynamic universities in Greece, located on the beautiful island of Crete. Although the department is relatively new (20 years old) it has been succesful in sustaining significant research activity (weekly seminars, graduate program, organizing several conferences, and a steady stream of visitors throughout the year), maintaining a good library and computational facilities.

In the School of Sciences there is also a very good Physics department as well as departments of Chemistry, Biology and Computer Science. Our department has close to 30 faculty members.

The deadline for submitting the proposal to the GSRT is November 10, 1997, and our Department requires that all candidates notify us before October 25, 1997. Arrange for three (3) letters of recommendation, an up-to-date CV and any supporting material to arrive by that date at the address:

Prof. Souzana Papadopoulou,
Analysis and Logic Group,
Department of Mathematics,
University of Crete,
714 09 Iraklio, Crete,

E-mail ( and FAX (+30-81-234516) are preferred because of the tight timing.

Address all questions to Prof Papadopoulou or myself (

Faculty members of the Analysis and Logic Group at the U of Crete:

  • I. Deliyanni (Visiting Assist. Professor/ banach spaces)
  • A. Giannopoulos (Assist. Professor/ convexity, banach spaces)
  • E. Katsoprinakis (Assist. Professor/ harmonic analysis)
  • M. Kolountzakis (Visiting Assist. Professor/ harmonic analysis, number theory)
  • M. Lambrou (Assoc. Professor/ operator theory, history of mathematics)
  • M. Papadimitrakis (Assoc. Professor/ harmonic analysis, convexity)
  • S. Papadopoulou (Professor/ convexity)
  • T. Pheidas (Assoc. Professor/ logic)
  • K. Skandalis (Assist. Professor/ logic, set theory)
  • N. Spanoudakis (Visiting Assist. Professor/ operator theory)

-------------------GSRT Announcement-----------------------

* GSRT launches the new "Career Awarding in Greek universities, research centers and institutes" Programme, which will be financed by EU as well as Greek state funds, under the Operational Programme for Research and Technology (EPET II). It is reserved for Greek-speaking researchers living and working abroad at the time of the call for proposals, for a period not less than two years.

* The Career Awarding Programme aims at attracting distinguished young researchers, having at least a two-years post-doctoral research experience abroad, in order to join research teams in GreeK universities, research centers or institutes and carry out specific and well-defined research, technology and training activities.

* The knowledge of the Greek language is considered as a strong cultural link between those scientists and Greece. Thus it is expected that Greek-speaking researchers will be interested in moving to Greece for a rather long stay (three years) with a view to contribute to the upgrading or further development of the research and technology activities of the Greek research teams.

* The proposal for a Career Awarding project must be submitted to the GSRT by a research unit attached to a university or a public research establishment in Greece which consists the Host Research Unit. The selection of the "foreign" researcher is left to the responsibility of the Host Research Unit upon criteria of scientific excellence and through transparent procedures. Particular attention will be given on that each interested research unit gives the widest possible publicity to its intention to host a "foreign" researcher.
