Postdoctoral Research Fellow: Scale-dependent coarse geometry and topology
Pure Mathematics
Location:  Highfield Campus
Salary:   £27,578 to £33,884

Applications are invited for a two-year EPSRC-funded postdoctoral position to work with Prof Jacek Brodzki and his team on geometric foundations of persistent cohomology in the context of coarse geometry and coarse-type cohomology theories. This project is part of an interdisciplinary programme to study the geometric, analytic and cohomological structure of large data sets. The starting date should be no later than 1 October 2012. 

The successful candidate should have a strong background in coarse geometry, topology, harmonic analysis of discrete groups and metric spaces and should have demonstrated an aptitude for independent research.  A PhD degree in mathematics and a strong research track record in a relevant area of mathematics are essential prerequisites for the post. Experience in topological methods for data analysis, e.g., persistent homology, would be a plus. The candidate should have good mathematical programming skills and should be interested in possible applications of pure mathematics to practical problems.

You will be joining a thriving research group within the Pure Mathematics section, which is a leading centre of analytic and geometric methods in Group Theory, and has grown considerably in size in recent years providing a very stimulating research environment.

For informal enquiries please contact Professor Jacek Brodzki (
