Department: School of Mathematical Sciences
Salary: £40,865 - £50,881 (Grade 5)
Date posted: 27-Nov-2017
Closing date: 02-Jan-2018
Queen Mary is one of London and the UK’s leading research-focused universities. With over 20,000 students, it is amongst the largest of the colleges of the University of London. Queen Mary’s 4,000 staff teach and research across a wide range of subjects in Science and Engineering, the Humanities, Social Sciences and Laws, and Medicine and Dentistry.
The School of Mathematical Science has an exceptionally strong research presence across the spectrum of areas within Pure and Applied Mathematics, and is currently organised into six research groups, namely: Algebra, Combinatorics, Complex Systems and Networks, Dynamical Systems and Statistical Physics, Geometry and Analysis, and Probability and Applications. The School also has large and popular undergraduate and graduate programmes.
The School is entering an exciting period of strategic growth with significant investment in new posts over the next three years across a broad range of disciplines. In addition to academic appointments, approximately £20M is being invested in the School’s building to provide state-of-the-art research, teaching and study facilities for staff and students.
About the role
Applications are invited for a Lectureship in Mathematics. A Lecturer holds an indefinite appointment roughly equivalent to an Assistant Professor in the US system (depending on career stage). We are seeking to appoint an outstanding candidate in the broad area of probability theory and applications. Preference may be given to candidates whose research either further broadens and expands the strengths of the existing groups in the School, or is at the interface with one or more groups.
A successful applicant will have demonstrated exceptional potential for achieving research excellence. Over time, the appointee will be expected to develop his or her own independent research platform within the School.
Candidates should also have a strong interest in pursuing excellence in teaching and supervising graduate students, as well as the ability and flexibility to teach probability at undergraduate and postgraduate level and entry level financial mathematics at undergraduate level.
Applicants whose research has potential for making impact outside academia are particularly encouraged to apply.
For further details of the role and selection criteria please refer to the job specification attached.
The School and Athena SWAN Charter for Women in Science
The School holds a departmental Bronze Athena SWAN Award and is a registered supporter of the LMS Good Practice scheme. We are committed to the equality of opportunities and to advancing women’s careers. As part of the School’s commitment to the Athena SWAN and the LMS Good Practice principles we strongly encourage applications from women.
Pay & Benefits
