Applications are invited for a Reader in Disordered Systems in the Department of Mathematics at King’s College London. This is part of a continued strategic expansion of Mathematics at King’s, with 13 new posts being advertised across the mathematical sciences.
Candidates are expected to have a PhD in Mathematics, Theoretical Physics or a related area, and research expertise in some area of Complex and Disordered Systems (understood in a broad sense). For example, but not exclusively, research could be in statistical and quantum mechanics of systems with disorder, Anderson and/or many body localization, theory of random matrices, nonequilibrium dynamics, spin glasses and other glassy materials, statistical inference, neural networks, optimization and machine learning.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the research activity of the Department, take part in teaching and examining for the Department’s undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes, make a contribution to the academic organisation of the Department, and have demonstrable ability to attract research funding. The Disordered Systems group contributes to an interdisciplinary MSc programme in Complex Systems Modelling.
The post is available from January 2023 and is located at the Strand Campus of King’s College London.
Further particulars of the post can be located at the link below, and further information about the department and the research group can be found at: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/mathematics
This post will be offered on a permanent contract.
