The successful applicant will work with Dr. Omer Bobrowski and Dr. Primoz Skraba, on developing the theory required to prove a series of conjectures on the universality properties of topological descriptors. A second goal is a fundamental challenge in Topological Data Analysis (TDA) – assessing the statistical significance of topological structures detected in data. The position comes with opportunities for attending workshops and conferences as well as establishing additional collaborations.

The successful applicant will have, or soon obtain, a PhD degree in mathematics, or equivalent level of professional qualifications and experience, in a field closely related to probability theory and/or applied topology, plus experience in writing high quality research papers.
