Post-doc position in probability

A postdoctoral position (research associate) is available in probability with a starting date between February and November 2020. The position is for 2 years.
Deadline for application: 1 December 2019.

The position is funded by the EPSRC fellowship “Mathematical analysis of strongly correlated processes on discrete dynamic structures” of Alexandre Stauffer.
The area of research will be centred on the mathematical analysis of random large-scale interacting systems, such as interacting particle systems, random walks and other stochastic processes in random or dynamic environments, percolation, spin systems, and Markov chain mixing time.

The ideal candidate is expected to have a strong background in discrete probability, and have (or expect to obtain shortly) a PhD in mathematics, theoretical computer science or related areas.
The successful applicant will be a member of the probability group of the University of Bath, and will also have the opportunity to collaborate closely with the probability group of Universita’ Roma Tre, and other collaborators of the grant.

Applications have to be submitted to the online system.

Candidates should attach the following documents (as PDF files) to their application:
* an updated curriculum vitae, with your list of publications and pre-prints.
* a research statement describing your research interests, your experience in the area of the position and your career aspirations.

In addition, add the names and contact details of two academic referees.

(There is no need to write a statement in the textbox in the “Additional Information” section.)

Shortlisted candidates will be contacted in December or January for an interview (via Skype).
