Applications are invited from individuals who have a strong background in mathematics with emphasis in at least one of the areas mentioned. Willingness to combine techniques from all of these areas is essential.
Funds for attending conferences and travel are available.
Candidates should hold a PhD in Mathematics (or have submitted their PhD Thesis before the starting date of the position).
Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed during the week commencing 9th November 2015. A Skype interview on an earlier or (slightly) later date may be possible if candidates are not available during the interview week. If you require an interview via Skype please mention this in your cover letter or contact Dr Dirr directly when applying for the role.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Nicolas Dirr directly at the following email; DirrNP at cardiff.ac.uk
Application: Cover letter, CV (including links to any publication, preprint or work in progress), a short research statement, references.
