Calculus of Variations and Geometric Measure Theory

ERC Postdoc position at Warwick

created by rindler1 on 18 Apr 2024

Deadline: 16 may 2024

The ERC/UKRI Project “CONCENTRATE - Concentration Phenomena in Nonlinear PDEs and Elasto-plasticity Theory” at the University of Warwick is looking for a creative and enthusiastic postdoctoral researchers to join Prof. Filip Rindler and his group in working on a range of challenging problems in Mathematical Analysis.

The work is a primarily theoretical and situated at the intersection of Nonlinear PDE Theory, the Calculus of Variations, and Geometric Measure Theory. Many questions to be worked on are motivated by applications in the theory of Elasto-plasticity (permanent deformation of solids) and its microscopic origins in the movement of dislocations (line defects in the crystal). While no formal education in the more applied aspects of the project is required, a willingness to engage with the physical background is expected.

You will be working as part of an inclusive and flexible team, based in the Warwick Maths Institute, a world-leading mathematics department. You will have, if desired, opportunities to travel in the UK and abroad, on research visits to collaborating groups and to conferences. You will be given both time and mentoring support to develop your own research profile and broader skills.
