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
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
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.
