Postdoc: TDA for Nanomaterials

The Centre for Geometry, Topology, and Application is currently advertising a three year postdoctoral position to work on a new, exciting project where topological data analysis will be used in combination with experimental physics and mathematical modelling to  design, fabricate, evaluate and improve novel nanomaterials. The project offers an excellent opportunity to expand the current topological methodology both in its theoretical foundations and its range of applications. 

The position is available from 1st October, and there is a degree of flexibility regarding the starting date. For details of the position and how to apply please see
