Research Associate

Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences, University of Cambridge

Salary: £31,604-£38,833

The Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics invites applications for the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate funded by the 'Homotopy Theory of Moduli Spaces' grant, which is held by Dr Oscar Randal-Williams. The post holder would work in the Topology group (faculty members include Prof Gabriel Paternain, Prof Ivan Smith, Dr Ailsa Keating and Dr Jake Rasmussen) on grant projects related to the cohomology of moduli spaces, such as diffeomorphism groups, mapping class groups, general linear and unitary groups, automorphism groups of RAAGs, configuration spaces and other related research areas, or spaces of positive scalar curvature metrics.

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant field, a strong research track record, and may have previous postdoc experience. The successful candidate may be asked to lecture one course (24 fifty-minute lectures and associated examples classes) per year at Part III (Masters or graduate) level, or to provide a comparable level of teaching support to other members within the topology group (eg examples classes). Duties and their timing are flexible. Further duties include developing and conducting individual and collaborative research objectives, proposals and projects. Candidates will be expected to plan and manage their own research and administration, with guidance if required. They must be able to communicate material of a technical nature and be able to build internal and external contacts. The post holder may be asked to assist in the supervision of student projects, the development of student research skills, provide instruction or plan/deliver seminars relating to the research area.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.
