Stipendiary Lectureship in Applied Mathematics

University of Oxford - University College

Applications are invited for a Stipendiary Lectureship in Applied Mathematics, tenable for 12 months from 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2018.  This post has been created to replace Professor Howell’s college duties during a fixed period of sabbatical leave, and is non-renewable. 

The appointee will be required to provide six hours of tutorials for the College per week, averaged over three eight-week terms, and to participate in the annual undergraduate admissions process, pastoral care of students and the administration of the subject in the college, including marking college examinations.  The College would consider reducing slightly the teaching stint for a candidate with demanding teaching or research commitments elsewhere; there would be a corresponding pro rata reduction in salary.

We expect the appointee to cover the following subjects:

  • First year Geometry, Dynamics, and Constructive Mathematics;
  • Second year core Differential Equations 1;
  • Second year optional courses in applied mathematics, namely a subset of: Quantum Theory, Differential Equations 2, Numerical Analysis, Fluids & Waves, Introduction to Manifolds, Calculus of Variations, Special Relativity, and Mathematical Modelling in Biology. Through swaps with other colleges, the exact combination of optional subjects to be covered may vary depending on the expertise of the post-holder.

The stipend will be in the range £13,248-£14,900 (depending on experience) plus a number of college benefits.  The further particulars and application form can be downloaded from, where further details about University College and the courses offered are also available. 

The closing date for applications and the last date for receipt of references direct from referees is 12 noon (UK time) on Monday 30 October 2017

Interviews are expected to take place on Thursday 23 November 2017 (subject to confirmation).

Please note that this post would not entitle the successful applicant to apply for a Tier 2 UK Visa, and thus any applicant should ensure that they have the legal right to work in the UK for the period of the lectureship.

University College is an equal opportunities employer. Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in Oxford.
