Postdoc at Exeter

Postdoctoral position in Dynamical Systems at the University of Exeter

This post is available from 01 November 2017 for 36 months to support the work of Mark Holland.

The University of Exeter is a Russell Group university that combines world-class research with very high levels of student satisfaction. Exeter has over 21,000 students from more than 130 different countries and is in the top 1% of universities in the world with 98% of its research rated as being of international quality. Our research focuses on some of the most fundamental issues facing humankind today.

This post is funding by the EPSRC on a project titled: “A geometric view of extremes in dynamical systems.”

Predicting high impact extreme events, such as severe weather and climatic events is a major challenge. Using innovative mathematical techniques this project will determine phenomenological mechanisms that lead to the occurrence of extremes, and develop a theory that can be used to predict when such events occur in physical modelling applications. Using dynamical systems theory, the project will use geometrical features of the underlying mathematical models to determine the future extreme behaviour.

The post will include:

Original research contributing to the above project. The successful applicant will be able to present information on research progress and outcomes, communicate complex information, orally, in writing and electronically and prepare proposals and applications to external bodies. 

Training & collaboration: the successful applicant will collaborate across disciplines and will actively participate in seminars, workshops and conferences in the subject area.

Applicants will possess a relevant PhD in the general area of Mathematics and be able to demonstrate sufficient knowledge in the discipline and of research methods and techniques to work within established research programmes.
