About the role
The department has internationally recognised research groups in pure and applied analysis; fluid mechanics; mathematical physics; geometry and topology; algebra, number theory and combinatorics; mathematical modelling in biology, finance, industry and society.
Applications are invited for a full-time Research Fellow position to work with Dr Lorenzo Foscolo on the project Instantons and codimension-1 collapse. The project focuses on the study of gauge theory on manifolds with special holonomy under codimension-1 collapse of the ambient geometry.
The responsibilities of the post will include: carrying out vigorous, high-level research in differential geometry and one or more related areas including, but not limited to, algebraic geometry, geometric analysis, and theoretical physics, submitting publications regularly in refereed journals; participating in local seminars and working groups and in national and international conferences.
This post is available from 01 October 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. Salary will be UCL Grade 7, point 29 which is £38,308 per annum inclusive of London Allowance.
This post is funded from 01 October 2023 to 23 March 2025 in the first instance.
Candidates should either have a PhD or equivalent qualification in mathematics or should be finalising their PhD or waiting for their viva date.
Please note: Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent on award and confirmation of a PhD (or equivalent). If this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Research Assistant Grade 6B, point 26 (salary £35,411 per annum inclusive of London allowance) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
A successful candidate will have a proven track record in research areas relevant to the project, they will have excellent interpersonal skills to facilitate participation in a research group. As well as excellent communication skills, both written and oral and the ability to work independently and in a team.
An outstanding candidate will have interest and research experience with at least one of the following subjects: gauge theory; manifolds with special holonomy; geometric analysis, in particular analysis on non-compact/singular spaces. Have a track record in publishing in areas relevant to the project.
For full spectrum of duties and responsibilities as well as essential, and desired criteria please refer to the Further Particulars document attached to this advert.
