Postdoc in probability at the University of Bath, UK

A postdoc (research associate) position is available in the area of
probability starting from 1st October 2016, or a date to be agreed.
The position will be available for up to 3 years.

The position is funded by the EPSRC fellowship "Mathematical analysis
of strongly correlated processes on discrete dynamic structures" of
Dr. Alexandre Stauffer.
The area of research will be centered on the mathematical analysis of
random large-scale interacting systems, such as interacting particle
systems, random walks and other stochastic processes in random or
dynamic environments, percolation, spin systems, and dynamically
evolving graphs.

The ideal candidate is expected to have a strong background in
probability theory, and have a PhD in mathematics, theoretical
computer science or related areas.

The successful applicant will be associated with the probability
laboratory (Prob-L@B) of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at
the University of Bath. Prob-L@B is one of the world's most vibrant
probability groups, with eight permanent members, a large cohort of
PhD students and postdocs, and a large number of different research
activities and international visitors.

Applications made to the on-line system should include:
* an updated curriculum vitae,
* the names and contact details of three academic referees,
* a one-page research statement describing your research interests,
your experience in the area of the position and your career
