Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate (PDRA) in the theory and computation of Complex Fluids, tenable from 1 April 2018 (or a date to be agreed), for a period of 2 years. This project, funded by the ERC Starting Grant Fellowship “Soft Water”, is focused on understanding the thermodynamic and dynamic properties of materials with tetrahedral interactions, such as water, using coarse-grained models and techniques borrowed from Soft Matter systems. The PDRA will work with Dr John Russo in the School of Mathematics, University of Bristol.

The applicant should have, or expect to soon receive, a PhD in Physics, Applied Mathematics or Chemistry, with expertise in the fields of Soft Matter, Statistical Mechanics, and Computational Methods. The applicant should also have a track record of high-quality publications.

The School of Mathematics is one of the leading centres for research and teaching in mathematical sciences in the UK, and offers a stimulating and friendly environment with first-rate facilities. The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics
