Are you an academic with a proven ability to carry out teaching and research in Applied Mathematics or a related mathematical discipline? Do you have an excellent research record and ability to obtain research funding? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University? 

We are seeking two talented researchers in Applied Mathematics to join our School of Mathematics. You will have an excellent research record, an aspiration to obtain external research funding and a passion for delivering first-class inspirational teaching and supervision within a research-intensive university.

As a Lecturer, you will carry out research, teaching and management within the School, Faculty and University and contribute to academic leadership in the field of Applied Mathematics (interpreted broadly: our current research interests include fluid dynamics, mathematical biology, non-linear dynamics, materials science, mathematical physics, integrable systems, inverse problems and industrial applications). We are particularly keen to receive applications from individuals with one or more of the following strengths:

  • Expertise in one or more areas of Mathematical Biology, e.g. Evolutionary Dynamics, Theoretical Ecology, Biophysics, Immunology.
  • Ability to build links beyond Applied Mathematics, e.g. with industrial, professional and public sector organisations, engineering, materials science, physics, chemistry, medicine and health, climate or environmental science.
  • Ability to develop teaching or research links with statistics or data science. 

In joining the University of Leeds you will become part of an internationally-focussed  University that provides all our students with an outstanding education and experience and at the same time undertakes cutting-edge research of high quality, impact and significance.  Several research institutes and centres (e.g. Astbury, Bragg, LIFD, LIDA, Priestley, water@leeds) provide significant opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration.

The Faculty of Engineering & Physical Sciences holds the Athena Swan Bronze Award in recognition of our success in recruiting, retaining and developing/promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET). The School of Mathematics also offers a number of family-friendly employment practices that are designed to enable a good work-life balance.
