Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Optimal transport techniques in the geometric analysis of spaces with curvature bounds

Grade 7: salary £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

We invite applications for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position to work with Professor Andrea Mondino at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford.  This is a one year fixed-term position, funded by ERC.

This project focuses on optimal transportation, geometric analysis, geometric and functional inequalities, metric measure spaces with Ricci curvature lower bounds (in the sense of Lott-Sturm-Villani), Lorentzian geometry and general relativity.  The members of the team master methods coming from Riemannian geometry, optimal transport, functional analysis, metric geometry and metric analysis.

The post holder will contribute to the research climate within the department and to further its international standing by conducting high-quality, relevant, research.

The post holder will be expected to have, or be close to completing, a PhD in mathematics or a related discipline.  They will possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within established research programmes with ability to initiate, develop and deliver high quality research and to publish in peer reviewed journals.
