NTNU has established the Onsager Fellowship programme, designed to attract the most talented young scholars with an established
reputation for high-quality research and a commitment to teaching at university level. The programme represents the introduction
of tenure-track positions in the Norwegian university system.
NTNU's Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering invites applications for a tenure-track associate

The Department of Mathematical Sciences has 36 full professors, 13 associate professors, two adjunct professors, seven adjunct
associate professors, and approximately 22 postdoctoral fellows and 57 doctoral students. Nine women hold tenured positions.
The department has five research groups: algebra, analysis, differential equations and numerical analysis, geometry and topology, and statistics.
The department has a wide range of teaching responsibilities. This includes all basic mathematical sciences teaching for engineering
and natural science students, bachelor’s and master’s programmes in Mathematical Sciences, and a special master’s programme in
Industrial Mathematics for engineering students. The department also plays a central role in a master’s programme for high school
science teachers. The master’s and PhD programmes attract highly qualified candidates.
The department aims to sustain and strengthen its mathematical sciences research efforts, stimulate the development of strong
research groups in pure and applied mathematics, and strengthen its capacity for supervising master’s and PhD students.

topics include complex and harmonic analysis, analytic number theory, and functional analysis.
The new associate professor position is in the field of complex analysis and related areas. The successful candidate should have
scientific interests that relate to one or more of the existing research activities in the group, which include several complex
variables, operator-related function theory, time-frequency analysis, and analytic number theory. In addition to his or her research
responsibilities, the successful applicant is expected to give courses and supervise bachelor’s, master’s and PhD students. An
excellent teaching record will be considered an advantage.
The research activities of the department rely on external funding, and the development of educational programmes may also receive
