University of Warwick, Coventry

Fixed Term Contract for 4 Years

We are seeking for a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to work under supervision of Prof. Oleg Pikhurko on the project "Measurable Combinatorics" funded by the Leverhulme Trust. This broad project focuses on the interplay between combinatorics and other areas of pure mathematics (descriptive set theory, group actions, measure theory, etc), with applications going both ways.

The main directions are descriptive combinatorics (in particular, combinatorialtype invariants of Borel graphs and graphings, and measurable equidecompositions) and the limit theory of discrete structure (in particular, with view of applying it to various problems of extremal and probabilistic combinatorics). While a previous experience in these areas is not required, an ideal candidate will have a strong analytic background and a great interest in combinatorics. We will also be looking for the depth of applicant's research and her/his potential in applying algebraic, analytic, or probabilistic methods to discrete problems.

The starting date is 1 October 2019.

The application should include the following documents: CV, a research statement, up to three of applicant’s selected papers or pre-prints, and between 2 to 4 letters of recommendation. All applicants should ensure that all referees send their references by email to before the deadline.

If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant on Level 5 of the University grade structure (£29,515). Upon award of your PhD and evidence of this fact, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of the Level 6 of the University grade structure (starts at £30,395).

Deadline for application: 19 February 2019.

This is a fixed term post for 4 years. Informal enquiries can be sent to:

Closing Date: 19th February 2019
