Applications are invited for the post of Postdoctoral Research Associate in Mathematical General Relativity in the School of Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh. The post is available with a mutually agreeable starting date between 1st April and 1st September 2022 for a 24 months fixed-term, full-time contract.
Grade/salary: UE07 / GBP 34,304 – GBP 40,927 per annum
College of Science and Engineering, School of Mathematics
Contract type: Fixed term, full-time
Duration: 24 Months
The position is funded by the Royal Society and the School of Mathematics to work with Dr Jan Sbierski on aspects of the interior of dynamical black holes and singularities.
Mathematical general relativity in Edinburgh is spread across the analysis group, with Jan Sbierski and Pieter Blue, and the mathematical physics group with Tim Adamo, Jose Figueroa-O’Farrill, Jelle Hartong, James Lucietti and Joan Simon, as well as postdoctoral researchers and PhD students. In addition to working in collaboration with the grant-holder (Sbierski), the successful candidate will be encouraged to develop and pursue their own research agenda and will be expected to undertake a small amount of teaching in the School of Mathematics. This position also comes with a generous travel budget and funds for laptop purchase.
Your skills and attributes for success:
Applicants should have a PhD in mathematics or mathematical physics with a background in general relativity, partial differential equations and/or Lorentzian geometry, as well as a track record of research excellence.
Please apply online and submit a CV and a brief research statement. In addition, please arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to references[AT]maths.ed.ac.uk (This is for references only)
The deadline for applications is 18th February 2022 at 5pm.
