Seven new positions

St. Petersburg State University opens seven full-time positions of various level (see below) for advanced teaching within the new Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science program. The Scientific Council of this program is headed by Stanislav Smirnov.

  1. Professor, salary level 194 736 RUB per month (1 Position)
  2. Associate Professors (Docents), salary level 170 394 RUB per month (2 Positions)

  4. Assistant Professor (Senior Teacher), salary level 121 710 RUB per month (1 Position)

(We encourage to apply to all appropriate positions, because the formal applications are processed separately.)

The program is very selective, admission is limited to 50 top students per year, the first three enrollments (2015, 2016 and 2017) are first rate. In particular, more winners of the all-Russian mathematical olympiad joined our program than any other similar program in Russia.

The program is accomplished in close cooperation with Chebyshev Laboratory.

Applicants are expected to have a strong research record and to be able to teach in Russian (teaching experience in English is an advantage). The winners are expected to carry out research of high professional standard, to teach, as well as to perform customary administrative duties such as advising students, participating in committees, organizing admissions, etc. The teaching load is up to 6 academic hours (=4.5 astronimic hours) per week for full professors, and 8 academic hours (= 6 astronomic hours) for associate and assistant professors.

Initial contract is normally signed for a period of up to five years, and can be renewed by further 5 year terms. Applicants from outside Saint Petersburg will get one-time moving compensation.

The details of the formal application procedure can be found here.

In addition to the formal application sent according to the above document, all applicants are invited to send a copy of their CV to Maria Rossomakhina mentioning any detail that could be relevant to the work of the selection committee, such as, for instance, the names of PhD students they supervised, if any, etc.
