Research Associate in Mathematics
Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics Section, Department of Mathematics
South Kensington Campus
Salary Range : £36,800- £44, 220 p.a.
Start date : 1st October 2018
Applications are invited from a talented individual with strong analytical skills to join Dr Ory Schnitzer’s research group in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London as a Research Associate in the Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics section.
The post holder will work to develop new mathematics for nanoplasmonics, a topical field in applied physics. In particular, the post holder will seek asymptotic solutions of (PDE) eigenvalue problems governing the optical resonances of metallic nanoparticles, as well as explore the application of these solutions in nanophotonics.
The position would suit applicants interested in developing a career at the intersection of mathematics, physics and engineering.
Prior expertise in asymptotic methods and singular perturbation techniques is required. Knowledge in wave phenomena, electromagnetic theory, or fluid dynamics is an advantage.
The RA will work directly with Dr Ory Schnitzer, and join a vibrant research group with multiple academic collaborators working on related wave problems, as well as the AMMP Section within the Department of Mathematics at Imperial and colleagues in the Department of Physics.
The successful applicant will be supported in their career development with a range of formal courses and on-the-job training.
