Postdoctoral Researcher in Probability

We invite applications for a postdoctoral researcher in probability, specifically to work on random graphs and their scaling limits, as part of an EPSRC Fellowship awarded to Professor Christina Goldschmidt. You will be expected to conduct original research in the area of the project, prepare research papers for publication and disseminate research findings in talks at suitable seminars, workshops and conferences. You will contribute ideas for new research directions, and may need to travel to collaborate with research partners.

As the Postdoctoral Researcher in Probability, you will have completed, or will soon complete, a doctorate in probability theory, probabilistic combinatorics, or containing a significant probabilistic component. You will have a documented track record in conducting high-quality research, evidenced by published peer-reviewed work appropriate to your level of experience. Sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline is required in order to be able to work on the project. You should be confident and competent to manage your own academic research and associated activities. It is highly desirable that you should have experience in one or more of the following areas: stochastic process theory, random graphs, random trees, R-trees, branching processes, random walks, analytic combinatorics, percolation, lace expansion, or any other topics related to the project.

Queries about the post should be addressed to Professor Christina Goldschmidt: goldschm@stats.ox.ac.uk or Professor James Martin: martin@stats.ox.ac.uk.

This post is fixed-term for 1 year, starting on or before 1 September 2020.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 6 March 2020 will be considered. Interviews will be held on 17 March 2020.
