Here is an offer for a 6 to 12 month postdoc in Paris, with one theme potentially interesting for Og’s readers:
The CARMIN Project, created as part of the call for “laboratories of excellence” of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research, aims at creating places where mathematicians can exchange and pool their skills in order to solve big scientific issues. In the mathematics field, there are indeed a number of open scientific problems that cannot be solved by a single person. This “mathematical” infrastructure is essential for maintaining excellence in the French mathematical school at the highest international level. (More information)
