The Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics invites applications for the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate funded by the ‘Homotopy Theory of Moduli Spaces’ grant, which is held by Dr Oscar Randal-Williams. The post holder would work in the Topology group (faculty members include Prof Gabriel Paternain, Prof Ivan Smith, Dr Ailsa Keating, and Professor Jake Rasmussen) on projects related to the cohomology of moduli spaces, such as diffeomorphism groups, mapping class groups, general linear and unitary groups, automorphism groups of RAAGs, configuration spaces, and other related research areas. The post is available for 2 years from 1 September 2019 (or by negotiation). Appointments will be made at an appropriate point on the University’s Research Associate scale.
