On 1 December 2020, Jan Frahm transferred to a permanent associate professorship in mathematics.

Jan Frahm has been associated with the Department of Mathematics in a fixed-term associate professorship since August 2019, where he, as a newly appointed recipient of a Villum Young Investigator grant, came to Aarhus from a Junior professorship in Erlangen, Germany. See the project page for Jan Frahm's grant "Symmetry Breaking in Mathematics"

Jan Frahm defended his PhD dissertation in 2010 at Paderborn University, Germany, which resulted in an award for "Outstanding PhD Dissertation 2010". After his PhD Jan Frahm joined Aarhus as a postdoc for three years, and has subsequently been assistant professor at Ohio State University, before he was appointed Junior Professor at the University of Erlangen in 2015.

In terms of research, Jan Frahm's interests lie in the representation theory for reductive Lie groups and harmonious analysis on homogeneous spaces.

In addition, he is interested in the applications of representation theory in other branches of mathematics, such as analytic number theory and partial differential equations. In the video below (in Danish) Jan Frahm presents himself and his research area.

In collaboration with Lars Vabbersgaard Andersen from the Department of Engineering, Jan Frahm teaches Advanced Calculus for Engineers, which is in the second semester of the Bachelor's programme in construction. Moreover, Jan Frahm from 2021 will take over the course Fourier Analysis, which is primarily followed by students from the Department of Physics, Department of Chemistry and iNANO. In 2017, Jan Frahm was awarded the Erlangen University Award for best young lecturer in natural science.
