Opportunities within the Geometric Analysis group
Mathematics Institute - University of Warwick
We currently have a large and active group in geometric analysis at Warwick, funded mainly by the Leverhulme Trust, EPSRC and the NSF. Funding is available to for postdocs and PhD students starting in September 2013 as indicated below. The group also hosts postdocs and PhD students wishing to come with their own funds, and some pointers to sources of funding are given below. The Mathematics Institute has excellent international links with active seminar and workshop series and around 500 visitors per year.
More information about group members this year is here.
Applications are invited for a 24 month postdoctoral position in geometric analysis and nonlinear partial differential equations, directed by Professor Peter Topping of the Warwick Mathematics Institute, and being part of a larger research consortium including also Dr. Andre Neves (Imperial) and Prof. Mihalis Dafermos (Cambridge), funded by a major new award from EPSRC.
The position is proposed to begin on 1 September 2013, although this is flexible (earlier or later).
Candidates should have experience of, and strong research potential in, some of the following areas: Geometric analysis, geometric flows, nonlinear partial differential equations, and differential geometry.
The main duties of the position will be research, and the development of the Warwick geometric analysis group. There will be at most a light teaching load.
Additionally, the positions will come with pension contribution, travel money and a contribution towards relocation expenses.
Departmental contact: Georgina.Copeland@warwick.ac.uk
Closing date: 10 December 2012
Interviews expected Jan/Feb 2013
If you are having trouble uploading attachments to the new application system in pdf format, then please just send them direct to Georgina Copeland at the address above. Apologies for any inconvenience.
We also host postdoctoral fellows with external fellowships. Possible sources of funds include
We expect to offer PhD positions funded by EPSRC starting 1 Oct. 2013. The stipends are expected to last for 3.5 years.
Supervision is available in diverse areas, including differential geometry, rigorous nonlinear PDE theory and geometric analysis. The geometric analysis group prefers candidates with a good undergraduate training in analysis and/or geometry.
The positions are open to EU applicants. We pay the course fees for all successful EU applicants. In addition, we pay a stipend to successful applicants from the UK, and those from the EU who have lived in the UK for the past 3 years. Students from elsewhere who have raised their own funding are also welcome to apply. Other sources of funds for overseas students may be found here.
The level of the stipends is still to be announced, but in 2010/2011 it was 13,590 GBP per year, tax free.
The successful candidates will be able to devote their whole time to research. There are numerous opportunities to engage in small-group teaching at Warwick, but this is optional and additional payment will be made for this.
Queries about the application process, and department open days, should be directed to the mathematics postgraduate admissions coordinator: Carole Fisher, firstname.lastname@example.org
Candidates are encouraged to apply, or make an expression of interest, as early in the 2012/2013 academic year as possible. The awards may be made at any time.
