Research Fellow

£30,395 - £39,609 per annum Ref: 10175-069

Fixed term contract for two years.

The post will be based in the Mathematics Institute at the University of Warwick. You will undertake research as part of the Leverhulme Trust funded project “The Nature of Interatomic Forces in Metallic Systems” to assist the investigators, Prof. Christoph Ortner (Mathematics) and Dr James Kermode (Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling) and a second PDRA (Engineering) in the successful execution of the project.

The advertised post is intended to develop the theoretical/mathematical foundations for this project, within one of two possible themes: (1) Connecting randomness and localisation to characterise the interaction range of interatomic forces. This theme will require expertise in analysis, probability theory and random matrices.

(2) Developing an approximation theoretic approach to constructing interatomic potentials and hamiltonians. This theme will require expertise in analysis, approximation theory and machine learning.

You will undertake independent and collaborative research, be expected to write up your research for publication and will be responsible for ensuring that project objectives and deadlines are met.

You will have a developing research profile with the ability to publish high quality research. You will have experience in one or more of the following areas: (1) approximation theory and numerical analysis; (2) random matrix theory, weak localisation, Anderson localisation; (3) mathematical aspects of electronic structure models. Scientific computing skills and/or exposure to machine learning will be beneficial.

Following submission of the online application form you will need to submit your curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a research statement. All applicants should also ensure that their 3 referees send their references to Alison Glendinning, Departmental Secretary, Mathematics, University of Warwick) by email to by the closing date.
