The Münster node consists of Martin Bays, Martin Hils (coordinator), Franziska Jahnke and Katrin Tent. (The other project nodes are Freiburg, Lyon and Paris/Orsay.) The main topic is geometric model theory and its applications to combinatorics and valued fields/non–Archimedean geometry as well as more classical stable contexts. Applicants working in any of these, or other related areas, are welcome.

Applications should include a cover letter indicating the desired starting date, a CV, a list of publications and a research statement. Please arrange for at least two letters of recommendation.
