Durham University - Department of Mathematical Sciences

Salary Range: Grade 7: £31,656 - £37,768; Grade 8: £38,896 - £46,414

The Department of Mathematical Sciences seeks to appoint two outstanding candidates at Lecturer (Assistant Professor) level. We welcome applications from exceptional scholars with research and teaching interests in pure mathematics.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to make a major contribution to the development of the Department’s research and teaching. Preference may be given to candidates with research interests that fit in with existing ones in the Department, in particular topology, algebra and geometry. She or he will be expected to undertake and publish original research of the highest level, to contribute to the research activities of the Pure Mathematics research unit and of the department as a whole, and to undertake teaching and administrative duties as assigned by the Head of Department of Mathematical Sciences.

The Department embraces excellence in all its forms and invites all qualified candidates to apply.

We particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in the University. We also encourage applications from holders of personal fellowships and from researchers who are interested in taking the position part-time. We offer a generous reduction in teaching in the first two years of appointment in order to facilitate the establishment of a sound research base within the Department.

The Department holds an Athena SWAN Bronze award. Athena SWAN is a national initiative that recognises the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia. The Department also supports the London Mathematical Society Good Practice Scheme, whose aim is to support mathematics departments to embed equal opportunities for women within their working practices.

Interviews are anticipated to take place in early 2017.
