Applications are invited for a 3 year Research Associate role in Mathematics, tenable from 1 October 2017 (or a nearby date to be agreed). The aim of this project, funded by EPSRC UK, is to perform cutting edge research in the following two fields of modern probability theory and stochastic processes: (a) random walks and diffusions with long memory (including self-interacting walks, walks in random environment, tracer diffusion in interacting particle systems); (b) stochastic representations in statistical mechanics with special emphasis on quantum spin and particle systems. The Research Associate will work with Professor Balint Toth at the School of Mathematics, University of Bristol. The applicant should have, or expect to hold shortly, a PhD in Mathematics or Theoretical Physics and experience in some aspect of probability theory, stochastic processes and/or mathematical statistical physics. For informal enquiries please contact: Professor Balint Toth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
