Applications are invited for a Research Associate position to work with Dr Andrea Brini in the School of Mathematics and Statistics. You will carry out research within the EPSRC-funded project “Mirror symmetry, quantum curves and integrable systems”. This post is part of a strategic initiative to strengthen our research activity in the area of Algebraic Geometry and Mathematical Physics, with a special focus on the interplay between enumerative algebraic geometry, string theory, quantum topology, and integrable systems. The Sheffield Algebraic Geometry and Mathematical Physics is a thriving and expanding group of geometers and mathematical physicists, with currently 5 permanent faculty and 10 students and postdocs. The profile, interests, and activities of the group may be found at http://alg-geom.group.shef.ac.uk/
Applicants are expected to hold a PhD in Mathematics or Physics, or have equivalent experience, by the start date of the position, as well as a track record of research work on one or more of the following subjects: mirror symmetry, enumerative algebraic geometry, topological field and string theory, integrable systems, random matrices, or related areas of Mathematics and of Mathematical Physics, broadly construed.
The School has a strong research ethos and an international reputation in research, with groups in Algebra and Geometry, Number Theory, Topology, Fluid Dynamics, Solar Physics and Plasmas, Mathematical Biology and Environment, Gravitation and Cosmology, Probability, and Statistics. There are also fruitful interdisciplinary links across the University.
We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
