A Research Fellow is required to work with Dr Tyler Kelly in the School of Mathematics. The position is funded by the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship "Open Mirror Geometry for Landau-Ginzburg Models." 

The successful candidate will join the new Birmingham Geometry and Mathematical Physics Group. The profile and research interests of this group may be found at:

You will work in collaboration with Dr Tyler Kelly as well as manage your own research projects. You will conduct academic research and administrative activities, collaborate with other members of the group or more broadly, and help foster a positive research culture. There may be some teaching opportunities for the research associate once in post, but teaching will not be a primary focus in this position.

The research context

This research project focusses on mirror symmetry and understanding mirror symmetry for Landau-Ginzburg models. This is an intradisciplinary mathematical discipline and research program, so applications from a wide array of geometry is encouraged. In particular, we seek applications from researchers studying aspects of mathematics including, but not limited to: derived categories, (open and closed) enumerative geometries, integrable systems/hierarchies, Hodge theory, mirror symmetry, symplectic geometry, algebraic geometry, and noncommutative algebra/geometry. 

Main Duties/Responsibilities

The responsibilities will include the responsibilities outlined below.
•    To conduct original research within the research project.
•    To interact with the members of the Geometry and Mathematical Physics group, including PhD students, through active participation in reading seminars and joint research activities.
•    Present research outputs, including drafting academic publications or parts thereof, for example at seminars and as posters.
•    There may be opportunities to undertake limited teaching responsibility, at the discretion of the successful candidate and upon approval by the School of Mathematics.
•    There may be opportunities to undertake public engagement activities, depending on the interest of the successful candidate.
•    There may be opportunities to develop ones own research objectives and proposals for own or joint research, with assistance of a mentor if required.
