Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Dynamical Systems in the frame of ERC Grant

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position fully funded by the European Research Council Starting Research Grant Chaotic Properties of Parabolic Flows: Mixing, Rigidiy and Spectra and supervised by the project leader Dr Corinna Ulcigrai.

The project focus on the ergodic and spectral properties of parabolic dynamical systems and includes a range of objectives connected to Teichmueller dynamics, time changes of homogenous flows and infinite ergodic theory.

You will be part of the active Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory group at the University in Bristol and interact also with the Number Theory and Mathematical Physics research teams.

You should hold (or expect to hold by the start date) a PhD in Pure Mathematics. A background in Teichmueller dynamics, spectral theory of dynamical systems or infinite ergodic theory is desirable.

Please note that we will only be able to consider you for this vacancy if you submit the application via the University of Bristol website
Complete applications should include the following items: cover letter, CV, brief research statement. In addition, the candidate should arrange for three academic referees to send recommendation letters directly to Dr Corinna Ulcigrai at It is the candidate's responsibility to ensure that reference letters are received by the closing date.
