Lecturer (Teaching and Research) or Associate Professor in Applied Mathematics


Do you have a proven ability to carry out teaching and research in applied mathematics? Do you have an excellent research record? Are you passionate about delivering an exceptional student experience in a research-intensive Russell Group University?

The School of Mathematics invites applications from academics who have an excellent research record, an aspiration to obtain research funding and a passion for delivering inspirational teaching and supervision.

You will carry out research, teaching, and management within the school, faculty and university and contribute to academic leadership. Current strengths in applied mathematics include integrable systems, nonlinear dynamics, fluid dynamics, virology and epidemiology, materials, inverse problems, mixing and flood mitigation. We are also open to new areas of research.

Computational modelling and data analysis are key in building the department's collaborations with academic and industrial partners in health, energy, and climate. Strategic importance lies in data science, AI and machine learning.

The School of Mathematics hosts the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Fluid Dynamics, which will support five cohorts of PhD students in interdisciplinary research from 2024 to 2028. If appointed at Associate Professor level, you must also be able to demonstrate international standing in your field, a track record of successful and substantive grant applications and the capacity to deliver an outstanding student experience.

The School of Mathematics offers family-friendly employment practices that are designed to enable a good work-life balance.

We are open to discussing flexible working arrangements.
