Research Associate ACAD103084


School of Mathematics


£32,548 - £36,613 per annum.


Applications are invited for a postdoctoral Research Associate position in Mathematics, tenable from 1 September 2018 or a date to be agreed. The position is funded by the Leverhulme Advanced Grant “Geometry, Combinatorics and Algebra of Sum-products”, which aims to develop and study the above-mentioned aspects, connections, and implications arising in the context of the sum-product phenomenon both over general fields, as well as specific to reals. The research programme aims to address a wide range of discrete questions, such as proving new arithmetic estimates and their applications to multiplicative subgroups over finite fields, developing geometric incidence theory, studying invariant sets arising in the context of geometric group action on finite sets, as well as continuous-analytic variants of these questions.


You should have a PhD in Mathematics or equivalent, with a suitable background in geometric/arithmetic/additive combinatorics, harmonic analysis or theoretical computer science. Applicants with expertise and willingness to explore the advanced algebraic geometry side of the problem are especially welcome.


The School of Mathematics is one of the leading centres for research and teaching in mathematical sciences in the UK, and offers a stimulating environment with first-rate facilities. The School is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics


It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure their referees send a letter of reference by email to by the deadline of 09 February 2018.
