Research Associate

School of Mathematics £32,004 - £36,001 per annum Full time Open ended contract staff Job number: ACAD102436 Applications are invited for postdoctoral research opportunities in Mathematics, tenable from 1 May 2017 (or a date to be agreed). This is funded by an ERC Advanced Grant “Exponential Sums, Translation Invariance, and Applications”, which aims to develop and study the efficient congruencing/decoupling methods in analytic number theory; it covers a wide range of topics including exponential sums, the Hardy-Littlewood (circle) method, quantitative arithmetic geometry, restriction theory, function fields, and additive combinatorics. You should have (or expect to hold shortly) a PhD in Mathematics or equivalent, with a suitable background in analytic number theory, arithmetic or algebraic geometry, discrete harmonic analysis, additive combinatorics, or theoretical computer science, and a willingness to interface with the theory of exponential sums and the circle method. The School of Mathematics is one of the leading centres for research and teaching in mathematical sciences in the UK, and offers a stimulating and friendly environment with first-rate facilities. The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics
