About the position:

  1. You will conduct research under the daily supervision of Dr Ivan Kryven in spectral properties of several models of random graphs and use these results to develop analytical methods and algorithms for analysis of stability and long-time behaviour of random dynamical systems.
  2. You will also be encouraged to engage in activities at the Centre for Complex Systems Studies wherein your results will be applied to improve predictive power of existing ecological and Earth-system models.

 Eligibility Criteria:

  • completed a Master’s degree in mathematics or a related discipline by the time the position starts.
