Calculus of Variations and Geometric Measure Theory

2-year postdoc position at Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh)

created by scardia on 29 Mar 2022

Deadline: 24 apr 2022

John Ball, Lucia Scardia and David Bourne are recruiting a two-year postdoc to work on the EPSRC project Mathematical Theory of Polycrystalline Materials:

The postdoc could start anytime between now and April 2023 (starting this autumn would be preferable).

It is a large project with several different aspects, so the postdoc could work on a project in the calculus of variations and mathematical materials science (dislocations, nonlinear elasticity, plasticity, homogenisation, Gamma-convergence, ...), or on geometric modelling of polycrystalline materials (using techniques from computational geometry and semi-discrete optimal transport).

Application deadline: 24 April 2022
