The University of Bristol seeks outstanding candidates for a Research Associate in Pure Mathematics, position tenable from 01 March 2021 for a duration of 24 months. The start date can be flexible and changed to a later date with further discussion. The successful candidate will become a member of the Institute for Probability, Analysis and Dynamics within the School of Mathematics in Bristol and will work with Dr Asma Hassannezhad.

This post is funded by the EPSRC New Investigator Grant Geometric eigenvalue bounds for the Dirichlet-to-Neumann Operator. There has been a recent surge of interest in the study of the spectral geometry of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator. This project will investigate the geometric spectral properties of the Dirichlet to Neumann and its further applications. It builds on some of the recent important progress on eigenvalue comparison theorems and eigenvalue bounds. The project objectives lie in the intersection of Partial (Pseudo-)Differential Equation, Differential Geometry, Geometry of metric-measure spaces, Harmonic Analysis and Microlocal Analysis.

This job requires the expertise and of a PhD graduate in Spectral Geometry of Elliptic Operators or related areas to conduct research toward the main goals of the project. The successful candidate will be lined managed by Dr Asma Hassannezhad, but also benefit from interacting with the members of the Institute for Analysis, Probability and Dynamics, Institute of Mathematical Physics and the Heilbronn institute for Mathematical Research in the School of Mathematics.

Please note that it is the applicant's responsibility to ensure their referees send a letter of reference by email to before the closing date 19 January 2021. For the letter reference, we also advise that they mention the vacancy reference number and the applicants name in the email subject.
