Research Fellow

Department of Mathematics

Location:  Guildford
Salary:  £31,302 to £39,609 minimum per annum
Fixed Term Contract
Post Type:  Full Time
Advert Placed:  Friday 09 November 2018
Closing Date:  Tuesday 08 January 2019
Interview Date:  To be confirmed
Reference:  049418-R

We  are seeking a postdoctoral Research Fellow to join a collaborative project  and work with expert team members from the mathematical, computational  and geophysical communities. The main type of work for the post is in PDE analysis and involves applying functional and harmonic analytical theories to validate and explore a set of innovative hypotheses which can change our existing views of resonances in multiscale fluid  dynamics and can lead to great impact in high performance computing.


The Research Fellow will conduct literature review and theoretical investigation and validation of the main hypotheses set out in the project proposal. Based on critical thinking and rigorous analysis, take initiatives and challenging the original hypotheses is encouraged. One or more publications (solo or joint authorship) in high-ranking mathematical journal is expected.

The post holder must have (by the time of appointment) a PhD in pure/applied mathematics and good track record of research in mathematical analysis. In particular, research experience in  PDE analysis, numerical analysis and/or harmonic analysis is highly desirable.

For informal discussion, please contact directly the Lead Investigator: Dr. Bin Cheng (University of Surrey)

Please note, it is University Policy to offer a starting salary equivalent to Level 3.6 to successful applicants who have been awarded, but are yet to receive, their PhD certificate.  Once the original PhD certificate has been submitted to the local HR Department, the salary will be increased to Level 4.1.
