Research Associate in Probability, University of Manchester
Full job description:
Applications are invited for a 24 month Postdoctoral Research Associate position, to start in March 2023, or at the earliest possible time thereafter.
We are looking for academics of outstanding ability, who are seeking a friendly, supportive and collegial environment in which to develop as world-class researchers, and who will contribute to the continued development of the Probability & Statistics Group, Department of Mathematics, in the School of Natural Sciences.
The post holder will work with Dr Sebastian Andres on his EPSRC Grant 'Homogenization of random walks: degenerate environments and long-range jumps'. In this project we aim to study random walks in random environment with long-range jumps and the associated partial differential differential equations involving non-local discrete operators describing the transition probabilities or heat kernels of such random walks. Priority will be given to applicants with expertise in probability, PDE analysis and other related fields. The successful candidate will have completed (or nearly completed) a PhD or equivalent in probability theory or a related area prior to their appointment, and will have demonstrated a capacity to produce world-class research. Further, you will be expected to work independently and in collaboration, engage with new ideas, and contribute new insights. The position comes with some travel funding and carries no teaching duties.
Applications should include:
a motivation letter, a CV including a list of publications, contact details of at least two referees, the academic transcripts for all university degrees. Please see the link above for further information.
The closing date for applications is 30th September 2022.
