***** MATHEMATICS RESEARCH POSITION IN CRETE *****
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
- 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 (email@example.com) and FAX (+30-81-234516) are preferred
because of the tight timing.
Address all questions to Prof Papadopoulou or myself (firstname.lastname@example.org).

CALL FOR PROPOSALS FOR
" CAREER AWARDING IN GREECE TO GREEK -SPEAKING
RESEARCHERS LIVING ABROAD " PROGRAMME
* 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
* 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"
DEADLINE FOR THE SUBMISSION OF PROPOSALS IS :
NOVEMBER 10 1997
