[DMANET] Post-doctoral position in Extremal Combinatorics at Warwick

Vacancy: Research Fellow
Department of Mathematics
University of Warwick

Fixed term contract for 18 months
Starting date: any time between 1 October 2015 and 1 May 2016
Deadline for applying: 26 August 2015 (including reference letters)

For a project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research
Council (EPSRC) and the European Research Council (ERC), we are
seeking for a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to work in
Extremal Combinatorics under supervision of Prof Oleg Pikhurko.

There are a few possible directions to explore under this broad project:

1. Asymptotic extremal problems for graphs and k-uniform hypergraphs
(such as, for example, the Turan function and Ramsey theory).

2. Limits of discrete structures and, more generally, applications of
probabilistic, analytic, or algebraic methods to discrete problems.

3. Developing software for flag algebra computations.

The successful applicant should demonstrate a strong potential to make
a substantial contribution to at least one of the above directions.

The starting date for this position can be any date between 1 October
2015 and 1 May 2016. Applicants have to submit their CV and research
statement, indicating at most 3 of their best papers related to the
project. All applicants should also ensure that their 3 referees send
their references by email to by the
closing date of 26 August 2015.
