Andy believes in inspiring the next generation of mathematicians, and is involved with School Outreach activities with local schools and the general public. Until late 2014 he was Head of the Mathematics group but has now commenced a five-year EPSRC Established Career Fellowship (2015-2020), working on the project Cluster algebras with periodicity and discrete dynamics over finite fields.
A postdoctoral Research Associate (RA) is sought for a 3-year position to assist Andy in the number theoretical aspects of his 5-year EPSRC fellowship project entitled Cluster algebras with periodicity and discrete dynamics over finite fields. The RA is expected to work in close collaboration with Andy and will also interact with Dr Theodoros Kouloukas, an RA currently working on algebraic aspects.
The project concerns the classification of discrete dynamical systems over finite fields, especially those given by birational maps obtained from cluster algebras, as well as the identification of new discrete integrable systems. This requires the participation of a postdoctoral researcher with a strong research track record, in addition to relevant skills and experience in one or more appropriate areas of mathematics.
A brief summary of the project is available here: http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/NGBOViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/M004333/1
An official advert for the position will be posted soon. The deadline for applications will be in early March, with interviews to be held in March or April, for the job to start in September 2018. In the meantime, please address inquiries to Professor Hone at the above e-mail address.
Due to study leave Andy is not able to offer any office hours during autumn 2017
