[DMANET] Postdoctoral research fellowship in probability and combinatorics at Birmingham

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral Research Fellow position at the
School of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham (UK) in probability,
combinatorics, and algorithms funded by an EPSRC project (PI: Will
Perkins) "New
approaches to Gibbs measures at the interface of probability and
computational complexity."

This post is available for a period of one year, with a starting date
between 1 May 2017 and 1 October 2017.

The successful candidate will join the Combinatorics, Probability, and
Algorithms group in the School of Mathematics at the University of
Birmingham. The profile and research interests of this group may be found

Applicants should have a PhD in mathematics awarded or submitted at the
time of taking up the position, a strong record of research and
publications, and familiarity with (some of) probability theory,
combinatorics, computational complexity, optimisation, or statistical

Informal enquiries about the position, the research programme, or
applications are very welcome and should be directed to Will Perkins (

The closing date is 1 January 2017. To download the details and submit an
