We invite applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Topological Data Analysis to work with Professors Heather Harrington and Ulrike Tillmann here at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford. The position is fixed-term for 30 months (2.5 years), and the successful candidate will become a member of the Centre for Topological Data Analysis at Oxford.
The postholder will be responsible for conducting research in applied topology, including topological data analysis, as well as techniques within computational topology aimed at bridging levels of organisation within molecular biology. You will be expected to contribute ideas for new research projects, write up the results of your research for publication, and provide guidance to junior members of the research group including project students, PhD students, and/or project volunteers.
Applicants will be expected to have, or be close to completing, a PhD in computational mathematics, topology or applied algebra. You will possess sufficient specialist knowledge to work within the research interests of the Centre for Topological Data Analysis, alongside the ability to manage your own research and administrative activities. Previous experience of computational mathematics and/or computer programming is desirable.
Applicants will be selected for interview based on their ability to satisfy the selection criteria as outlined in the job description document below. You will be required to upload a letter setting out how you meet the selection criteria, a curriculum vitae including full list of publications, a statement of research interests and the contact details of two referees as part of your online application (NOTE: Applicants are responsible for contacting their referees and making sure that their letters are received by the closing date).
