Fixed term contract for 36 months
For a project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), we are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to work in extremal combinatorics under supervision of Oleg Pikhurko. While the main directions of the project will be asymptotic extremal problems for graphs and k-uniform hypergraphs (such as the Turan function and Ramsey numbers), previous experience in these areas is not required.
More importantly, we will be looking for the depth of your research and your proficiency in applying probabilistic, analytic, or algebraic methods to problems of discrete mathematics. In particular, a familiarity with regularity lemmas, graph limits, or flag algebras will be a strong asset.
The starting date for this position is between 1 October 2013 and 1 January 2014.
Candidates should send a CV and a list of publications (that includes a short annotation of at most three of their best papers) to Georgina Copeland (Georgina.Copeland@warwick.ac.uk). Candidates are also encouraged to send a research statement.
