The Southampton Geometry and Topology Group is offering a postdoctoral position in symplectic topology, starting in the autumn of 2024. The successful candidate will be expected to undertake research under Cheuk Yu Mak within a Royal Society-funded project to investigate symplectic topology and its interaction with low dimensional topology, mirror symmetry, and geometric representation theory.
The University of Southampton (UK) is home to the Centre for Geometry, Topology, and Applications, a large research group in geometry and topology. The Group currently comprises 18 staff members (Arman Darbinyan, Armando Martino, Ashot Minasyan, Bernhard Koeck, Cheuk Yu Mak, Daniel Kasprowski, Graham Niblo, Ian Leary, Jacek Brodzki, Jan Spakula, Jelena Grbic, Jim Anderson, Jim Renshaw, Nansen Petrosyan, Nick Wright, Ruben Sanchez-Garcia, Shintaro Nishikawa, and Stephen Theriault). Research interests in the group cover symplectic topology, low dimensional topology, algebraic topology, algebraic geometry, and geometric group theory.
In order to be considered for this post, the applicant must have a PhD or equivalent in Mathematics, or a related discipline and have a track record in at least one of the following research areas: symplectic topology, low dimensional topology, mirror symmetry, and geometric representation theory.
