University of Surrey - Department of Mathematics

Applications are invited for a Senior Lecturer/Reader in Mathematics, Modelling and Simulation, based in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Surrey, and co-funded by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL). Under a new partnership with NPL, our aim is to expand our research capability in areas such as uncertainty quantification, Bayesian inference, and data science, with applications to meteorology, measurement science, climate change, environmental monitoring and life and social sciences.

We are looking for an outstanding mathematician or physicist with significant experience in data assimilation or mathematical modelling, to strengthen and expand this research area. The post will be based in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Surrey, but the post holder will work closely with the Mathematics, Modelling and Simulation group at NPL www.npl.co.uk/mathematics-modelling-and-simulation

The successful candidate will join a friendly, vibrant and highly-rated department with a broad range of research interests, many of which span the interface between pure and applied mathematics. These include theoretical aspects of mathematics, the development of methods for solving physical problems, modelling of physical and biological systems, and a variety of interdisciplinary collaborations. Specific research areas include dynamical systems, ergodic theory, nonlinear PDEs, fluid dynamics, geometry and mechanics, mathematical physics, mathematical meteorology, biological and social systems modelling, mathematical statistics and numerics. This post will likewise engage in research at the interface between mathematics and measurement science. In the last UK Research Assessment Exercise, three-quarters of the Department’s applied mathematics submission was rated world leading or internationally excellent. Further information about the Department can be found at www.maths.surrey.ac.uk.

Informal academic enquiries are welcome and may be made to Prof Ian Roulstone (Head of Department): I.Roulstone@surrey.ac.uk or +44 (0)1483 689638.

The post is available from 1st January 2018.
