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.
There are 40 Birmingham fellowship positions (tenure track) available across the entire University (closing date 31st of March).
We are keen to attract outstanding candidates working in Combinatorics, Probability and Algorithms.
Informal enquiries about applications are strongly advised at an early stage and can be made to Daniela Kühn or Deryk Osthus.
