Lecturer in Mathematics (Education and Research)

University of Exeter - College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences

Salary: Appointments will be made within the Education and Research job family, salary range £33,943 up to £41,709 on Grade F, depending on qualifications and experience.

Mathematics http://emps.exeter.ac.uk/mathematics/ is a vibrant and successful Department within the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter that was recently rated the 8th best place to study Mathematics in the Guardian newspaper. For several years there has been sustained investment in both academic staff and infrastructure to provide a catalyst for significant growth in both research activity and student experience.

The University of Exeter is a Russell Group University in the top one percent of institutions globally. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) the University of Exeter was ranked 16th nationally with 98% of its research rated as being of international quality. Exeter is ranked 7th in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016, 9th in the Guardian University Guide 2016 and 10th in The Complete University Guide 2016.

In the Department of Mathematics we believe in creating an inclusive working environment that attracts the best students and academics from all over the world — an environment that is fairer, more supportive, and respectful of individuals. 

To further strengthen our activities in Mathematics we are seeking to appoint a Lecturer (Education and Research) with interests in dynamical systems, initially for a fixed term of five years. We are particularly keen to recruit candidates who will interact with other researchers, both within Mathematics and with those who are applying Dynamical Systems methods to problems in natural sciences and engineering. This position has become available because of the recent award of an EPSRC fellowship "Exploring instability in complex systems" to Dr Jan Sieber. The expectation is that the ideal candidate will have complementary interests to the fellowship topic. Current research collaborations in this area include the EPSRC funded “Centre for Predictive Modelling in Healthcare” and collaborations with “Exeter Climate Systems”.

Applicants will hold a PhD in a mathematical topic and have an independent, internationally-recognized research programme in an active field of research in dynamical systems. The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to and develop research and the teaching of Mathematics at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

Our Exeter Academic initiative supports high performing academics to achieve their potential and develop their career.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean (College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences), Prof Ken Evans (tel: 01392 723645, email: K.E.Evans@exeter.ac.uk) to discuss the posts further.  Informal enquiries can be made to Prof Peter Ashwin (tel: 01392 725225, email: P.Ashwin@exeter.ac.uk).

The Department of Mathematics holds a Silver Athena SWAN award in recognition of their commitment to providing equality of opportunity and advancing the representation of women in STEM/M subjects.

The University of Exeter is an equal opportunity employer which is 'Positive about Disabled People'. Whilst all applicants will be judged on merit alone, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented in the workforce.
