Postdoc position available

I have an opening for a postdoc position. Candidates with a background in probability, analysis, or mathematical physics are encouraged to apply. The deadline is 01 December 2023. The position is for two years, with a possible extension of one more year. The successful applicant will be expected to work on problems related to random matrices, random graphs, quantum statistical mechanics, and quantum field theory.

The application should consist of a Curriculum Vitae, a short research statement, and two reference letters. Please send all documents by email to Joselle Besson.


My research is at the interface of probability, analysis, and mathematical physics. I work mainly on random matrices, random graphs, statistical mechanics, stochastic processes, high-dimensional statistics, quantum field theory, and quantum dynamics.
