Post-Doctoral Research Assistant in Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics

Salary range: £27,319-£35,646/year

We need a brilliant and proactive Post-Doctoral researcher for a 3-year position in Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics within the interdisciplinary group led by Dr. Lucarini. The position is funded through the EU-ERC project NAMASTE.

The research will focus on the analysis of the statistical mechanical properties of the climate systems using theoretical tools and models of various degrees of complexity. Attention will be devoted to the rigorous analysis of the response of the system to perturbations. The impact of stochastic forcings will also be addressed.

The Post-Doc researcher will be very active in the management of the computing resources, in the preparation of publications, presentations for conferences, and in the organisation of seminars and scientific events. Moreover, he/she will interact actively within the interdisciplinary research group, which will include the PI, two Post-Doc researchers and two PhD students, and pursue scientific collaborations internally and externally.
