Courses covered at the time of recruitment :
The subjects to be taught include calculus and geometry in the Bachelor program, Differential Geometry in the Master’s program and courses of mathematics for students majoring in another science. All courses can be taught in English during the first two years.
Teaching duties are reviewed periodically and are subject to modification over time.
PhD Degree (with doctoral thesis) in Mathematics or in a closely related subject, or equivalent qualifications.
