Applications are invited for the post of Research Associate in the Theoretical Physics Group of the School of Physics and Astronomy. The post is available from September 2010, for two years in the first instance, with a possible extension of a further year.

The person appointed will be a theoretical physicist or applied mathematician with a background in non-equilibrium statistical physics, the theory of stochastic processes or the theory of complex systems, and will work on an interdisciplinary project studying multi-scale dynamics, especially in biological systems. Applicants should have, or be about to complete, a PhD in Theoretical Physics, or related area, and ideally will have experience in the general theoretical techniques that are applied in the study of stochastic processes.

A second, related Research Associate post within the Theoretical Physics Group is also available. Please see job reference EPS/92179 for details.

Salary £28,983 - £30,748 p.a.
