The main research interests of our group lie in Combinatorics, the study of Random Discrete Structures and the analysis of Randomized Algorithms. Combinatorial structures of particular interest are graphs and hypergraphs. Indeed, large graphs underpin much of modern society and science, and can be used to model networks in biology, sociology or computer science. These models give rise to a variety of challenging computational problems. The probabilistic perspective arises both as an invaluable method of proof as well as through the analysis of typical properties of combinatorial objects. We are always keen to hear from talented students who are interested in these topics and would like to pursue PhD study in this area.



Applications are invited for a Lectureship in Combinatorics and a Lectureship in Probability and Modern Statistics in the School of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham (closing date: 13th December 2018). We strongly encourage lectureship applicants working at the interface of Combinatorics and Probability to apply for both positions. Informal enquiries about applications are advised at an early stage and can be made to Daniela Kühn or Deryk Osthus.

We are advertising two Research fellowships in Combinatorics, each for two years (closing date: 5 December 2018). One of these is funded by an EPSRC grant (PI: Deryk Osthus) and one by an EPSRC fellowship (PI: Daniela Kuhn). The starting date is May 1 or later.

We are advertising one Research fellowship in Extremal Combinatorics for two years (closing date: 19 December 2018). The position is funded by an EPSRC grant (PI: Richard Mycroft). The expected starting date is April 1, but it can be negotiated.
