The School comprises two teaching divisions (Mathematics and Physics), each with a head of teaching; and six Research Centres. There is a considerable crossover between these areas and the ethos of the School is one of excellence in research informing excellence in teaching.

The School of Mathematics and Physics holds a silver Athena SWAN award.

As part of a major investment in Mathematical Sciences at Queen’s University Belfast, applications are invited for the above posts, to start as soon as practically feasible. The successful candidates will join a dynamic research environment in a supportive and collegial setting, at an exciting time to further advance mathematics research and education within the School of Mathematics and Physics.

The posts will enhance the newly formed group in Applied Mathematics. Preference will be given to areas within PDE’s and Dynamical Systems, or Discrete Applied Mathematics, but strong candidates from all subfields of Applied Mathematics will be considered and are encouraged to apply.

The successful candidates will demonstrate outstanding ability and potential. They will be research-driven and willing to play a role in the future development of the Mathematical Sciences Research Centre, providing a leadership in shaping the capability in Applied Mathematics in collaboration with academics within the University and beyond.
