The successful candidate will conduct research in number theory as part of an exciting new UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship “Reciprocity, functoriality and the p-adic Langlands programme”. Relevant areas of expertise include Galois representations and automorphic forms, p-adic automorphic forms and arithmetic geometry. The precise research topics to be investigated can be tailored to the post-holder’s prior experience and interests. They will have the opportunity to write up their results for publication and represent the research group at external meetings/seminars, whilst also managing their own academic research and administrative activities.

Applicants will be expected to have, or be close to completing, a PhD in mathematics or a related discipline.
