Willmore Fellow in Probability

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is investing in excellence and seeks to appoint an outstanding postdoctoral researcher as a Willmore Fellow. This 3-year fixed term position is for candidates who are in the early stages of their research career and have between 2 and 6 years of research experience since their PhD by the closing date of the call. A Durham Willmore Fellowship provides the opportunity to build an independent research career. We advertise one Willmore Fellowship each year. Those appointed are expected to be strong candidates for permanent posts in universities at the end of their fellowships.
More information the Willmore Postdoctoral Fellowships is available on our websites at https://www.dur.ac.uk/mathematical.sciences/distinguishedfellows/willmorefellows/.

For this year's Willmore Fellowship, we welcome applications from exceptional scholars with research interests in probability, or in a closely related area of analysis.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to make a major contribution to the development of the Department's research. The successful candidate will be expected to undertake and publish original research of the highest level, to contribute to the research activities of the probability research unit and of the department as a whole. We expect Willmore Fellows to contribute modestly to teaching, in the form of final year undergraduate project supervision in their area of research.
