The position comes with no teaching duties.

For the call in Geometric Group Theory the successful applicants will work in the project "Cubulating groups" of P. Przytycki in collaboration with D. T. Wise (McGill University) and J. Mackay (University of Oxford), partially funded by the Foundation for Polish Science. Positions must conclude before August 31, 2013.
For the call in Algebraic Geometry the successful applicants will work in the project "Secant varieties, computational complexity, and toric degenerations" of J. Buczyński in collaboration with K. Ranestad (University of Oslo) and G. Brown (University of Loughborough). The project is realised within the Homing Plus programme of Foundation for Polish Science, co-financed from European Union, Regional Development Fund. The positions are partially funded by the project. Positions must conclude before April 30, 2014.

Each application should contain a detailed research plan with proposed position dates, a CV with a list of publications, and one recommendation letter for candidates who apply to come for more than one month.
