[DMANET] Postdoc position in combinatorics

Dear colleagues,

I would like to advertise an opening for an ERC funded postdoctoral
position in combinatorics at the University of Warwick. The details are
enclosed below. Note that we are open to hiring a candidate with no prior
experience in theory of combinatorial limits and/or extremal combinatorics.

Best regards,

Dan Kral

Job id: 75569-035

University of Warwick, Coventry

Department of Computer Science

Research Fellow

Fixed Term Contract from 1 Oct 2015 to 30 Sep 2017 (negotiable)

You will be expected to perform high quality research in the theory of
combinatorial limits and/or extremal combinatorics. You will possess, or
shortly be obtaining, a PhD, or an equivalent qualification in Mathematics
or Computer Science. You should have a strong background in one or more of
the following areas: structural graph theory, theory of graph limits,
extremal combinatorics, probability theory and model theory. Prior
experience in the theory of combinatorial limits or extremal combinatorics
is not essential; applications from PhD graduates working in probability
theory or model theory with an interest in combinatorial limits and
extremal combinatorics are particularly welcome.

This post is based in the Department of Computer Science, but a close
interaction with members of the Warwick Mathematics Institute and members
of the DIMAP center is expected. The position is funded by the ERC Starting
grant CCOSA and the ERC Consolidator grant LaDIST of Professor Daniel Kral.

Candidates should provide with their application form a CV, a list of
publications and a research statement.

Closing date: 31 Mar 2015
