South Kensington Campus
Applications are invited for a Research Associate position at the Mathematics Department at Imperial College London. The position is funded by the Royal Society through a University Research Fellowship (URF\R1\191492) on “Deterministic and stochastic aspects of fluid mixing” and by the Department of Mathematics.
The individual appointed to this post is expected to make significant contributions to the project and also play an active part in the wider development of the project, interacting creatively with the PDRAs associated to the other relevant groups in the department, particularly the applied analysis and the stochastic analysis groups.
Duties and Responsibilities
The post holder will work closely with Michele Coti Zelati on topics related to Partial Differential Equations, Stochastic Analysis, and Dynamical Systems, with particular emphasis on fluid dynamics, transport equations, mixing and stochastic PDEs.
The proposed research aims at the development of new mathematical tools in partial differential equations, harmonic analysis and probability to help understand the mechanism of fluid mixing – a ubiquitous phenomenon in nature that, to these days, remains poorly understood from the mathematical viewpoint. The goal is to tackle, from a rigorous mathematical perspective, central questions regarding the stability and long-time behaviour of the Navier-Stokes and Euler equations of incompressible fluids.
The post-holder will be active part of the organization of the applied PDEs seminar, will participate to reading classes and informal seminars on research-level topics, and generally be an enthusiastic and committed full time postdoctoral researcher in the team.
The essential requirements for this post are as follows:
The position is for 24 months. The expected start date is 15 December 2019 or as soon there-after as is practical.
Maximum salary on appointment £40,215
*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £35,477 - £38,566 per annum.
