The Smerlak group at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (Leipzig, Germany) has openings for one or more postdoc positions to work on quantitative evolutionary theory.

The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences is a leading centre for applied mathematical research in Germany, with strong expertise in geometry, dynamical systems, PDEs, stochastic processes and non-linear algebra. The broader scientific environment in Leipzig includes two other Max Planck Institutes (Cognitive Science and Evolutionary Anthropology) as well as the University of Leipzig.

Our group is especially interested in the topic of "evolutionary predictability". Convinced that natural laws tend to emerge at the two ends of the scale spectrum, we attack this problem from the complementary perspectives of micro-evolution (e.g. analysis of fitness landscapes) and macro-ecology (e.g. growth scaling laws).

The successful candidate(s) will have both an independent research program and a desire to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries.

Salary is competitive based on experience and qualification and working conditions are excellent, with a dedicated and competent staff. Relevant initiatives (conference, workshops, etc) can be funded.

Start date is flexible but earlier is better.
