Associate Professor in Mathematics
at Trinity College Dublin

I am an associate professor in the school of mathematics at Trinity College Dublin. My research is in the areas of quantum field theory, quantum gravity and string theory. My current research is funded by the Science Foundation Ireland grant EMSCS.

ESR Postgraduate studentship

I am currently inviting applications for an Early Stage Researcher PhD studentship to work within the MCSA ITN SAGEX in the area of scattering amplitudes in gauge theory and gravity. The goal of the research project will be to apply modern methods to the study and computation of soft limits of scattering amplitudes in gauge and gravity theories and to study the relation to symmetries of the underlying theories.

The post is a full time, fixed-term appointment for three years, with an expected start date of August 31st 2018. The position will be at a fixed salary rate of approximately €31,480 per annum plus a mobility allowance and a family/dependents allowance.
