Valuing Diversity & Committed to Equality

The Department of Mathematics is a registered supporter of the London Mathematical Society’s (LMS) Good Practice Scheme which supports advancing women’s careers in university mathematics departments.

We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and have policies to support staff with flexible arrangements for parental responsibilities or those returning from a long-term absence.  As part of the department’s commitment we are working towards holding an Athena SWAN bronze award.  We positively encourage women applicants and those from an ethnic minority to apply, as they are currently under-represented within the Department of Mathematics.

The post is available to start on 1 September 2020 and is located at the Strand Campus of King’s College London.

Further particulars of the post can be located in the job pack below and further information about the department and the research group can be found at:
