My name is Vitezslav Kala, but people just call me Vita. I'm an assistant professor at Charles University (Department of Algebra).

Previously I was a postdoc at the University of Göttingen, working with Valentin Blomer (between 2015 and 2017)During the Fall 2014 I was postdoc at the Max Planck Institute in Bonn. 

I got PhD in Mathematics after 5 years at Purdue University in Indiana; it was my pleasure to work under the guidance of Freydoon Shahidi. I'm a Fulbrighter, a recipient of the International Fulbright Science and Technology Award, which has covered my PhD studies for 3 years.

I did my undergraduate and Master's studies in math in Prague at Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Department of Algebra. Originally I'm also from the Czech Republic (from a small village with a long name Doubravice nad Svitavou).

I have a 2-year postdoc position available.

I may hire a new Ph.D. student starting in October 2021. Strong candidates are welcome to informally contact me by email.
I recommend contacting me as soon as possible, ideally before Jan 31, 2021. For the full application I will require a CV, motivation letter/research statement, and one recommendation letter.
