The School of Mathematics, University of Bristol is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Researcher in Probability. The successful applicant will work with Márton Balázs, supported by his EPSRC grant 'Stochastic interacting systems: connections, fluctuations and applications'. The position is available from the 1st March 2018 and is full time, on an open-ended contract with funding available for 36 months.

Our School has a vibrant scientific environment with leading researchers, several postdocs and students, high-profile reading groups and seminar series in various fields of Mathematics, including Probability. We take particular care of professional skills development for colleagues in earlier stages of their careers. The post holder will contribute to the research activities of the School, manage their own research agenda with guidance if required, publish their results in strong journals and present them on top international conferences as well as seminars. Prior or very close to the start date, they will have completed a PhD in an area closely related to stochastic processes and demonstrated the ability to conduct world-class research and disseminate results.

The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics and we therefore particularly welcome applications from women for this post.
