|Placed On:||10th November 2021|
|Closes:||8th December 2021|
Fixed term contract for 12 months, 36.5 hours per week.
We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work in the areas of Phase Transitions, random Constraint Satisfaction Problems, and/or Monte Carlo algorithms for sampling-counting for a period of 12 months, with the possibility to extend. The start date can be negotiated for the successful candidate.
The position is available in connection with an EPSRC research grant of Dr Charilaos Efthymiou (Please click here.) and the main objective is to pursue cutting edge research in the broadly understood area of Phase Transitions for random Graphs and random Constraint Satisfaction Problems, analysis of Monte Carlo sampling algorithms and in general connections between theoretical computer science and statistical physics, focusing on fundamental research in this area.
The applicants are expected to have a strong interest and background in at least one of the areas of phase transitions, probabilistic combinatorics, theory of Markov chains, spectral graph theory, mathematical analysis of algorithms with focus on sampling algorithms and more broadly in discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science.
The applicants must provide with the application form a CV, including a list of publications, a research statement, and a short statement highlighting their suitability for this post.
The hired candidate will be based in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick, and also will be associated with the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications, and the Division of Theory and Foundations at the University of Warwick.
Informal inquiries should be addressed to Charilaos Efthymiou at Charilaos.Efthymiou@warwick.ac.uk.
If you have not yet been awarded your PhD but are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant on level 5 of the University grade structure (£30,497 pa). Upon successful award of your PhD and evidence of this fact, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (£31,406 pa).
Interview Date: TBC.
