Postdoc in Computer Algebra related to Combinatorics - University of Geneva, Switzerland

A two-year postdoctoral position is available at the math institute of the University of Geneva in Computer Algebra related to Combinatorics, funded by the Eccellenza Grant "Partition identities and interactions" of Pr. Jehanne Dousse (the grant will start in September 2022).

The successful applicant will join the group of Jehanne Dousse and work on a broad project which aims at combining the combinatorial theory of partition identities with representation theory and computer algebra. In particular, the future postdoc will work on developing automatic ways to prove partition identities by automatically solving certain types of recurrences and q-difference equations.


Research on the theme of the project (and on the applicant's own research projects if they wish so), teaching of one exercise session per week (in mathematics, most likely at the undergraduate level).

Starting date:

Negotiable, no earlier than September 2022.

Gross salary:

Around 80'000 CHF per year


Candidates must have defended their PhD by the start of the appointment, and have background in Computer Algebra. They must also have a strong background in using a programming software such as Maple, Mathematica, Sage, etc. Some knowledge of Combinatorics is appreciated, but not fully required.


The application should be sent by email to and should contain the following material:
