Job Purpose

To create and contribute to the creation of knowledge by undertaking a specified range of activities within the project “New approaches to Gibbs measures at the interface of probability and computational complexity”, funded by an EPSRC research project (PI: Will Perkins).

The overall aim of the project is to investigate new methods for bounding the partition functions of probabilistic models arising from statistical physics, and use these methods to solve problems in probability and combinatorics.

Person Specification

Promising research track record and ability to communicate Mathematics clearly. Probability, Combinatorics, Theoretical Computer Science or a closely related area.
