An assistant professor position in mathematical logic, Charles University in Prague, Deadline: 31 October 2014

The Department of Algebra invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor in the area of mathematical logic. The expected starting date is January 1, 2015 or soon afterwards and is negotiable.

Areas of special interest are:
(i) interactions of logic with computational complexity theory, or
(ii) model theory (any of its facets).
However, strong candidates in all areas of mathematical logic will be considered. Candidates are required to have a proven international research record corresponding to their career stage and a postdoctoral experience.

A successful candidate is expected to pursue an active research program, teach advanced and introductory classes in Czech and/or English and possibly supervise undergraduate and graduate students. Teaching in Czech is not required. (English is sufficient since the advanced classes may be taught in English even in standard undergraduate programs.)

The expected duration of the initial contract is three years. Such a position is renewable under a mutual agreement for another three years (and possibly for further three years, depending on the career stage). These new contracts depend on how successfully the assistant professor carries out research and teaching duties. Then, subject to a separate review process (called a habilitation), a promotion to the rank of associate professor is usual. This promotion is usually connected with a tenure. However, if the candidate’s career is already advanced with a strong research record, the initial period can be substantially reduced and you can progress to the promotion very fast.

Electronic applications accompanied by:

a curriculum vitae
a proof of PhD in a relevant field
a list of publications
a description of pedagogical experience

should be sent to Mrs. Eva Ramesova at ramesova@karlin.mff.cuni.cz.
The candidate should also arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent directly to the same address. Informal inquiries are welcome and may be sent to Prof. Jan Krajicek at krajicek@karlin.mff.cuni.cz.
The application deadline is October 31, 2014.

Early applications are encouraged; applications may be processed as they are received.

We may invite the best candidates for an interview during October – mid November; after that the final round of selection will follow.

Pavel Pudlák: A presentation of Martin’s proof of Borel determinacy

Monday, February 17, 2014, 13:30
Prague Logic Seminar, Institute of Mathematics, Žitná 25, blue lecture hall, rear building

Speaker: Pavel Pudlák (Institute of Mathematics AS CR)

Title: A presentation of Martin’s proof of Borel determinacy

Abstract:

Countably infinite games are, in general, not determined – there are games in which neither player has a winning strategy. A classical result of Martin shows that every game whose payoff set is Borel is determined. Recently Gowers proposed to use finite versions of the concepts involved in Martin’s proof to solve the P vs. NP problem. Although it is not clear if this approach is likely to make a progress in the P vs. NP problem, it is worthwhile to recall Martin’s proof.
