The development of exceptional talent in mathematics is critically important for the future of the subject at Oxford and beyond.

The Whitehead Lecturer will be expected to communicate mathematics effectively to audiences at all levels, and to be able to provide stimulating projects involving mathematical research to outstanding young mathematicians including school and undergraduate students. The postholder will also be expected to have the ability to teach over a wide range of topics in the undergraduate mathematics syllabus at Oxford, in tutorials, classes and lectures. The postholder will be expected to maintain contact and familiarity with current mathematical research.
