Applications are invited for a 1-year postdoctoral Research Associate position in Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath.

You will work under the supervision of Professor Hendrik Weber, and will be funded by a Philip Leverhulme Prize, conducting research on the theory of stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs).

Subjects of study may include regularity questions, a priori bounds, large scale behaviour or emergence of SPDEs as scaling limits. You will be expected to publish in high quality journals and present results at international conferences and workshops. 

Candidates must have a PhD or be close to completing a PhD in a field related to the theme of the position, ideally with deep knowledge in at least one of the following: stochastic analysis, theory of SPDEs, regularity theory for PDEs, mathematical physics, interacting particle systems, and you must show enthusiasm for learning more on these subjects. 

You will join Prob-L@B, one of the UK’s leading and most vibrant centres of probability consisting of 11 faculty, 1 postdoc (excluding this position) and over 25 PhD students. You will be a highly motivated individual who will also contribute well to Prob-L@B and the Department of Mathematical Sciences as a whole. In particular, it is expected that you will play an active role in helping to sustain collective research activities within Prob-L@B (reading groups, workshops, seminars etc).

Ideally, you will take up the post on 1 October 2019 but an alternative start date is negotiable.
