Research Fellow in Mathematics

Research Fellow in Mathematics

University of Sussex - Department of Mathematics

Sussex, United Kingdom

Job description

The department of mathematics at the University of Sussex offers a fixed term Postdoctoral position in Probability and Mathematical Physics. Initially, the position is for 18 months but may be extended subject to additional funding.

We welcome candidates from these areas broadly, but candidates with an interest in random matrix theory, interacting particle systems and exactly solvable models are particularly encouraged to apply.

The post is part of a larger project funded by the Royal Society aiming to understand the relation between eigenvalues of random matrices and recent developments in probability theory related to e.g. Gaussian free fields.

The post-holder will work closely with the principal investigator Dr. Nick Simm in the Probability and Statistics research group and will benefit from recent growth in random matrix theory and probability within the department.

The post comes with a generous travel bursary that will enable the successful candidate to participate in international conferences and summer schools.

Prospective candidates should hold a PhD in Mathematics or Theoretical Physics, or be in the final stages of writing up their PhD thesis and have submitted by the start date of the position.

Examples of topics that are pertinent to this job include:

  • Random matrices broadly defined (e.g. to include two dimensional Coulomb gases, Wigner matrices, models in integrable probability);
  • Determinantal or Pfaffian structures in probabilistic models;
  • Orthogonal polynomials and their asymptotic analysis using tools such as the Riemann-Hilbert problem.
