Research Fellow in Pure Mathematics

University of Leeds - Faculty of Mathematics & Physical Sciences - School of Mathematics

Contract Type: Fixed Term (24 months)

Due to external funding restrictions, an appointment will not be made above £33,518

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in proof theory, the metamathematics of set theory, or computability theory? Do you want to further your career at one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities?

We are looking for a Research Fellow to join our Templeton Foundation project, A new dawn of intuitionism, which seeks to address contemporary foundational concerns from the intuitionistic point of view. The project’s broad goals are to advance the proof theory of intuitionistic theories; to determine the proof-theoretic strength of some of the most expressive intuitionistic type and set theories; and to describe computational models of intuitionistic logic and theories.

You will contribute to the project by carrying out original research, preparing research papers for publication in international journals and conference proceedings, and giving research seminars and conference talks.

You will have a PhD in Mathematics, Computer Science, or a closely allied discipline, alongside experience in at least one of the following areas: proof theory, computability theory, reverse mathematics or type theory. You will also have the ability to conduct independent research, supported by a developing track record of publications in leading peer-reviewed journals. In addition, you will have excellent communication, planning, and team working skills.
