TDA Postdoc in Aalborg, Denmark

What we offer:
We offer a postdoc position within the Department of Mathematical Sciences as part of the project “Deciphering Nanoporosity of Amorphous Materials using Topological Data Analysis”. The selected candidate will be conducting research supervised by Lisbeth Fajstrup and Christophe A.N. Biscio and in collaboration with the Department of Chemistry and Bioscience to find new topological descriptors of porosity.
The selected candidate will visit Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA for 4 months to collaborate with Staff Scientist Dmitriy Morozov.

What we request:
The selected candidate will hold a PhD in Mathematics or a related field and will have promising research results within Topological Data Analysis, Computational Topology or related subjects.
The project to which the postdoc will contribute involves developing the theory of non-monotone and multidimensional persistence to describe variations of the free volume and in particular tunnels in amorphous materials and implementation of such insight as a tool. This will require a strong background in Topological Data Analysis either theoretical or computational.

You may obtain further professional information from Associate Professor Christophe Biscio, phone: +45 9940 8925, e-mail: or Head of Department Søren Højsgaard, phone: +45 9940 8801, e-mail:

Qualification requirements:
