Research Associate - Ref 2661
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University invites applications for a postdoctoral position, to begin in October 2013 for a 36 month period. The position is funded by an EPSRC grant entitled 'Topology, geometry and Laplacians of simplicial complexes', which is a joint project between pure mathematicians and theoretically oriented computer scientists. Candidates with research interests in discrete geometry, geometry and analysis on groups, or topology are encouraged to apply. The researcher will work independently on projects within the general area of research supported by the grant, as well as on specific projects in collaborations with the grant holders.
Closing date: 28 May 2013
Contact Dr Norbert Peyerimhoff for further details.
Two of the Research Councils (EPSRC and STFC), the Royal Society and the European Commission offer postdoctoral fellowships ranging between two and ten years in duration. The positions, which can be held at any UK university, are applied for individually and the department generally welcomes applications to come to Durham. Interested candidates should first approach a member of the group to act as their sponsor (please include a CV and research statement).
The EPSRC fellowship scheme supports three career stages: postdoctoral, early career and established career. Fellowship applications will only be invited in specific research areas linked to strategic priorities. Consult the current list (which may be updated as the set of priorities evolves) for details, or read more general information about the fellowship scheme.
STFC (formerly PPARC)
The department has a fixed quota of applications for the Rutherford Fellowships, if you are interested in applying through us please contact us at least 1 month before the deadline, i.e. by 12 September 2011. See the STFC pages for more details about the scheme, the call for proposals and details on the departmental application limits.
Support for 5 plus 3 plus (exceptionally) 2 years for applicants from the European Economic Area or Switzerland at early to mid-stage of their careers, with PhD or equivalent but not a permanent post. See the Royal Society Fellowships page.
