## Postdoc opportunities in Milano, deadline early July

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on June 13, 2011

The University of Milan has a general call for postdoc applications here. Within mathematics, they welcome applications within the following general subject areas (see pages 9 and 10 of the huge pdf file):

*Arithmetic on local and global fields*, a topic suggested by Fabrizio Andreatta.- Geometry and moduli of algebraic varieties (Bert van Geemen)
- Analysis and geometry on CR and Riemannian manifolds (Marco Maria Peloso)
- Categorical algebra for applications in (non-abelian) homological and universal algebra (Sandra Mantovani)

Positions can be held for up to 4 years. The deadline is 6 July 2011, and applications must be submitted by post.

## Early Bourbaki seminars now freely available

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on June 11, 2011

Until quite recently, the first 10 volumes of the Bourbaki seminars were under subscriber-access only at NUMDAM, but now they are freely available! These 10 volumes cover the years 1948-1968 and hence contain many gems from the early days of scheme theory and the development of cohomological tools in algebraic geometry.
