Two postdoctoral positions in large cardinals and the axiom of choice, Norwich (England), Deadline: 21 Jul 2020
Applications are invited for two postdoctoral research positions to work
with Dr Asaf Karagila at the University of East Anglia on the project
“Understanding the axioms: the interactions of the Axiom of Choice with
large cardinal axioms” funded by UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship
The project aims to better understand the tools currently missing for
consistency results related to large cardinals without the axiom of
choice. Specifically, improving upon the basic tools for lifting
elementary embeddings to symmetric extensions, and the iterations thereof.
Successful candidates will have (or be closed to submitting) a PhD in a
relevant area of mathematics, most likely set theory, although not
necessarily with focus on results concerning large cardinals or the axiom
of choice. For any questions about the posts or the research project,
please contact Dr Asaf Karagila, email@example.com
Applicants should have a relevant PhD (or be about to obtain) or
equivalent professional experience in the research area and be able to
fulfil all essential elements of the person specification.
These full time posts are available from 15 September 2020 or as soon as
possible thereafter. The positions are initially for a fixed term of 24 months
initially but may be extended for upto 21 additional months.
