Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics

University of Bristol - School of Mathematics

The University of Bristol is seeking to appoint a number of Lecturers/Senior Lecturers in Mathematics based within one of four newly established research institutes in the School of Mathematics: the Institute for Applied Mathematics, the Institute of Mathematical Physics, the Institute for Pure Mathematics, and the Institute for Probability, Analysis and Dynamics. A Lecturer holds an indefinite appointment roughly equivalent to an Assistant or Associate Professor in the US system (depending on career stage); a Senior Lecturer is equivalent to an Associate Professor.

The appointments are part of a major strategic expansion of the School of Mathematics, which in January 2018 will move to a substantial Grade-II listed property, providing office space for over 100 academics, 100 post-graduate students and 80 post-docs. The building is currently transformed to a state-of-the-art mathematics teaching and research facility at a cost of £33M.

We are looking for world-class researchers in any areas of pure, applied and industrial mathematics, including those currently not represented in the School. The post-holder will be responsible for her or his own research programme, carry out appropriate administrative tasks and deliver excellence in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Informal enquires are welcome and can be directed to Prof. Jens Marklof FRS (Head of School, maths-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk) as well as the Institute Directors Prof. Tim Browning (Pure Mathematics, T.D.Browning@bristol.ac.uk), Prof. Jon Keating FRS (Mathematical Physics, J.P.Keating@bristol.ac.uk), Prof. Rich Kerswell FRS (Applied Mathematics, R.R.Kerswell@bristol.ac.uk ), Prof. Balint Toth (Probability, Analysis and Dynamics, Balint.Toth@bristol.ac.uk).

The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics and we therefore particularly welcome applications from women for this post. http://www.maths.bris.ac.uk/admin/life/women/

Please note that it is the applicant's responsibility to ensure their referees send a letter of reference by email to maths-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk by the deadline of 15 December 2016
