REF: RA1992

£34,304 to £40,927 per annum

Full-Time / Fixed-Term

We are seeking a post-doctoral Senior Research Associate to work with Dr Robert D. Gray on the EPSRC-funded project "Algorithmic, topological and geometric aspects of infinite groups, monoids and inverse semigroups". For further details of the project see: https: // gow.epsrc.ukri.org/NGBOViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/V032003/1

This position is part of an EPSRC Fellowship held by Dr Robert D. Gray. The main objectives of this project are to:

  • Investigate algorithmic, logical, combinatorial, topological and geometric aspects of one-relator groups, monoids, and inverse semigroups, and related classes,
  • and then apply the results and theory we develop to

  • Explore the boundary between decidability and undecidability for finitely presented groups, monoids and inverse semigroups.
  • Ultimately this work will form a foundation from which we will attack several important longstanding open problems in this area.

    Key duties and responsibilities of the post include:

  • To work with the PI Robert D. Gray on the EPSRC project EP/V032003/1 "Algorithmic, topological and geometric aspects of infinite groups, monoids and inverse semigroups".
  • To conduct high-quality research, publish results in refereed journals, and present results in seminars and at national and international conferences.
  • To contribute to the research environment of the School of Mathematics at UEA by attending local seminars or reading groups, and helping with the organisation of research workshops or other events.
  • The successful candidate should hold (or be about to obtain) a PhD in Mathematics. They should have a track record of excellent research in one or more of the following areas: geometric group theory, one-relator groups, combinatorial semigroup theory, inverse semigroup theory, algorithmic and decision problems in algebra, topological and homological methods for groups and/or monoids, logic and model theory of groups and/or monoids. Applicants must satisfy all the essential criteria detailed in the person specification.

    This full-time post is available on a fixed term basis from 1 October 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter for up to 36 months, ending 30 September 2025.

    The University is committed to diversifying its workforce. As examples, we already hold an Athena SWAN Silver Institutional Award in recognition of our advancement towards gender equality. We also have a Vice-Chancellor led Taskforce on Tackling Racism and a Race Equality Charter Working Group which support our work on race equality. Our aim is to submit to the Race Equality Charter in 2024.
