     We are about to be awarded a substantial grant for Probability in
     Cambridge, and will have a number of postdoc posts over the next 6

     1. If you know excellent individuals still on the market for this
        year, please forward this email to them (or let me know).

     2. We would love to have your ideas for postdocs over the next few
        years - maybe PhD students just finishing up or others who
        would benefit (from)  Cambridge.
