Brunella Post-Doctoral Fellowship

A one-year post-doctoral fellowship will be offered by the Institute of Mathematics of Bourgogne (IMB) in honor of Marco Brunella.

french version

Conditions of the grant The grant will be given for 12 months starting between September 1, 2023 and January 1, 2024.

The goal is to support the post-doctoral fellow to develop his or her research at the IMB and to participate in the scientific activities of the institute. The applications will be examined by a scientific committee. Priority will be given to research domains represented in the IMB which are close to the interests of Marco Brunella: different aspects of Geometry and/or Dynamical Systems.

Candidates must have obtained a doctoral degree within the last five years.

The post-doctoral fellow will receive: 2 360 euros per month and a budget of 3 000 euros for the year to be used for expenses related to research.

How to apply Send the following documents (in pdf form) to before the deadline noted below:

  1. A CV with a complete publication list;
  2. A short resume of previous research work and a research project describing, in particular, possible interactions with the IMB;
  3. A letter of motivation.
Also arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address.
  • The complete application must be sent to before Friday, March 17, 2023.
  • The decision will be communicated to the candidates on or before Friday, May 12, 2023.
  • The position can start between September 1, 2023 and January 1, 2024.

      Marco Brunella (1964-2012)

      Marco Brunella (Varese Italy 1964, Rio de Janeiro Brazil 2012) was a doctoral student at SISSA, Trieste, where he defended his thesis on dynamical systems under the direction of Alberto Verjovsky : Expansive Flows on Three-Manifolds (1992). In the beginning of his career, he studied many aspects of foliation theory and dynamical systems, on which he published approximately ten papers. Then, motivated by the fascinating problem of « minimal exceptional sets for holomorphic foliations of CP2 », he turned his research to the study of complex foliations, on which a large part of his work was based.
      He developed several tools in both analytic geometry and algebraic geometry. His profound understanding of sophisticated theories of various domains enabled him to bring new insights into many problems of analytic geometry and holomorphic foliations. Marco Brunella spent most of his career as a Chargé de Recherche at the CNRS at the University of Bourgogne. He died suddenly during a stay in Rio de Janeiro, a city which he loved, where he was visiting friends and colleagues of IMPA.
      His family has generously donated funds from his estate to the « Institut de Mathématiques de Bourgogne » (IMB) in order to participate in the development of mathematics in honor of Marco. We therefore have decided to use a part of these funds to create the « Brunella post-doctoral fellowship ».
