PhD student position in set theory, Bristol (U.K.)


Contact: a.brooke-taylor@bristol.ac.uk

Preliminary Announcement

There is the possibility of a doctoral student position in the School of 
Mathematics of the University of Bristol, for a student to work with Dr 
Andrew Brooke-Taylor and Professor Philip Welch on the EPSRC-funded 
project "Bringing set theory and algebraic topology together".  This 
project seeks to develop applications of set theoretic tools and 
techniques to algebraic topology, including a descriptive set-theoretic 
analysis of invariants from algebraic topology, and the use of large 
cardinal axioms to resolve questions in homotopy theory.  The ideal 
candidate will have a solid background in set theory, category theory and 
algebraic topology.

Interested candidates should contact Dr Brooke-Taylor at 
a.brooke-taylor@bristol.ac.uk as soon as possible.  Start date to be 
arranged.
