Job Description

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a strong background in model theory? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities?

We are looking for a Research Fellow to join our EPSRC-funded project “Model theory of analytic functions”, led by Dr Vincenzo Mantova. As part of the project, you will work on the boundary of model theory, differential algebra, and number theory to develop new insights about analytic functions. In particular, you will explore the connections between surreal numbers, transseries, classes of non-oscillating functions, and o-minimality, and/or problems related to the model theory of complex exponentials and of modular functions.

To explore the post further or for any queries you may have, please contact: 

Dr Vincenzo Mantova, Lecturer in Pure Mathematics
