Applications are invited for a Research Fellow position to work in the area of number theory or algebraic/arithmetic geometry, both interpreted broadly. The position is funded by the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research. You will divide your time equally between your own research and the research programme of the Heilbronn Institute in London. For more information about the Heilbronn Institute, see http://heilbronn.ac.uk.
A PhD in Mathematics relevant to the study of number theory or algebraic/arithmetic geometry, both interpreted broadly, is essential. You will have proven research ability in mathematics, strong research potential and a track record of original research in number theory and/or algebraic/arithmetic geometry. An outstanding research record commensurate with your level of experience and the potential for strong leadership qualities in the subject are also required. You will be expected to contribute significantly to the research environment of the relevant research group and the Department of Mathematics as demonstrated, for example, through a proven track record of successful research interaction.
Due to the nature of this work, you must satisfy vetting before appointment (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/security-vetting-and-clearance). UK resident UK nationals will normally be able to meet this condition: other potential applicants should consult the Heilbronn Manager (see below) about their eligibility before applying. You may become a member of the USS pension scheme. Research expenses of £2,500 per annum will also be available. There is a salary supplement of £3,500 per annum, in recognition of the distinctive nature of these Fellowships.
This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 3 years, with a preferred start date in October 2019, though another date may be possible by prior agreement.
This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent.
