Position: Research Fellow
Institution: University of Warwick
Location: Coventry, England, United Kingdom
Duties: Applications are invited for 2 positions as Postdoctoral Research Fellow, working with David Loeffler and his research group on the ERC-funded research project “Shimura varieties and the Birch - Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture”. The aim of this project is to study the arithmetic of Galois representations arising from Shimura varieties, via the techniques of Euler systems, and use these methods to prove new cases of the Bloch-Kato and Birch-Swinerton-Dyer conjectures. We are seeking candidates with strong research potential, and prior familiarity with some or all of the following areas: Automorphic representations; P-adic automorphic forms and eigenvarieties; Geometry of Shimura varieties
Requirements: PhD or equivalent in Mathematics, or expecting to receive one by the starting date; Familiarity with at least one of the following research areas: Automorphic representations; P-adic automorphic forms and eigenvarieties; Geometry of Shimura varieties; Evidence of quality research output from experienced candidates, or of strong research potential from less experienced candidates
