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.
