European Research Council funded fellowship ERC-Advanced Grant “Integral and Algebraic Points on Varieties, Diophantine Problems on Number Fields and Function Fields”

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The subject matter will concern integral and algebraic points on varieties, diophantine problems in number fields and in function fields. More specifically, it is expected that the research of the recipients of the grants will be devoted towards some of the following directions: Study of integral points on varieties and applications to algebraic dynamics; Diophantine approximation in Diophantine geometry and arithmetic of fields; Study of the so-called “Unlikely Intersections” (which embraces questions like relative Manin-Mumford, Zilber-Pink conjectures and similar issues)

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
