Position: Research Fellow in Mathematics
Institution: University of Warwick
Location: Coventry, England, United Kingdom
Duties: We are seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to work under supervision of Prof. Oleg Pikhurko on the ERC Advanced Grant "Finite and Descriptive Combinatorics". This broad project focuses on the interplay between combinatorics and some other areas of pure mathematics (descriptive set theory, Borel and measure-preserving group actions, stochastic processes and local algorithms on locally finite graphs, etc), with applications going both ways. The main directions are descriptive combinatorics (in particular, combinatorial-type invariants of Borel graphs) and the limit theory of discrete structures (in particular, with view of applying it to various problems of extremal and probabilistic combinatorics)
Requirements: PhD or equivalent in Mathematics or being close to its completion. While a previous experience in these areas is not required, an ideal candidate will have a strong analytic background and a great interest in combinatorics. We will also be looking for the depth of applicant's previous research and her/his potential to master new areas and techniques
