Hourly Paid Lecturer in Mathematical Finance

University of Greenwich - Department of Mathematical Sciences,

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Greenwich is seeking to appoint an outstanding and enthusiastic hourly paid lecturer to contribute to the delivery and assessment of our MSc in Computational Finance.

The Person

Applications are invited from individuals with experience of teaching Financial Mathematics at postgraduate level. The teaching material will be in the area of mathematical approaches to risk management, with Matlab software being used.

The successful candidate will be required to give lectures and tutorials, set assessments, mark students’ work and provide high quality feedback. They will also have to carry out administrative tasks associated with the teaching. Subject knowledge, written communication and organisational skills will be key for the role. Experience of academic and assessment processes would be an advantage.

Applicants must be prepared to work as a member of a team following guidance and be able to deliver high quality teaching and assessment to deadlines.

Candidate Requirements

Applicants should possess a good honours degree in Mathematics and hold a PhD in Mathematical Finance or a closely related area, or be about to obtain one. Preferably they should have a teaching qualification. Good IT skills and a knowledge of Matlab and mathematical word processing are essential. Experience of supporting students in an academic role would be an advantage.

The successful candidate must be available to attend the Greenwich Campus of the University on Mondays from January-April 2017 inclusive and be willing to respond to student emails outside class time and engage in assessment related activities for the duration of the academic year. They will be home-based and will be required to join online and occasional face-to-face meetings with members of staff in the Department.

How to apply

Please send a C.V. and covering letter to MathSci.apply@gre.ac.uk before 13:00 on 9 December 2016, stating clearly the position for which you are applying. Shortlisted candidates will be required to attend for interview on 15 December 2016.

We reserve the right to appoint before this date. The University of Greenwich has an Athena SWAN Bronze Award and the Department of Mathematical Sciences is keen to encourage applications from women and ethnic minorities, both of whom are currently under-represented on the Department’s staff.
