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

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
