J-BJI, the Jinan University – University of Birmingham Joint Institute, is a joint venture based at the Panyu Campus, Jinan University, Guangzhou, China which took its first students in 2017. We currently deliver four BSc programmes in Mathematics, Mathematics with Economics, Mathematics with Statistics and Mathematics with Information Computing Science, attracting high quality undergraduates from across China. The programmes are taught entirely in English, with the mathematics component being delivered by the flying faculty team of 16 Associate and Assistant Professors from the School of Mathematics at the University of Birmingham.
In this round of recruitment, we are looking to recruit up to four Associate or Assistant Professors based in Birmingham who will spend periods of four to six months in Guangzhou. These posts are for Teaching and Research or Teaching-focused staff available from August 2022.
We are seeking enthusiastic and committed staff with experience of, or demonstrable potential for, delivering standard first and second year material as well as third year modules covering topics such as applied statistics, game theory or optimization to a broad range of highly motivated students. Typically you will have, or be developing, an exciting and active research profile. Teaching focussed candidates will have or be developing an exciting pedagogical profile and have or demonstrate potential for academic leadership.
Teaching is entirely in English though speaking Mandarin is not essential, it would be desirable for candidates given the possible length of time spent in a Mandarin speaking environment. Accommodation for Birmingham staff is provided in a suite of individual flats at the Panyu Campus. Visa and other operational needs may vary this in the future. Professional services support at Panyu is provided by a dedicated team of staff based in China. When in the UK, meetings, teaching and other activity associated with J-BJI take place to accommodate the time difference.
Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent experience working in any area of statistics, mathematics or related subject may apply. We are particularly keen to encourage applicants with research interests that might lead to impact activity or who are working in areas such as applied statistics, epidemiology, medical statistics, econometrics, stochastic modelling, financial mathematics, data science and machine learning or optimization.
The School of Mathematics aims to provide a supportive and friendly environment for staff and research fellows to develop as researchers and lecturers. The School is a supportive and people-focused friendly environment, committed to equality, diversity and inclusivity. We encourage applications from the widest community and provide equal opportunities in our recruitment processes.
