Lecturer in Disordered Systems
Applications are invited for a Lectureship in Disordered Systems in the Department of Mathematics at King's College London. Candidates are expected to have a PhD in Mathematics, Theoretical Physics or related areas, and research expertise in some area of Complex and Disordered Systems (understood in a broad sense). For example, but not exclusively, in statistical and quantum mechanics of systems with disorder, soft matter and glassy materials, econophysics, statistical inference and machine learning. A research record in studying non-equilibrium phenomena would be an advantage, but strong candidates in other relevant areas will be given a serious consideration.
All candidates should have the potential to carry out research which has high levels of originality, innovation and depth that may lead to significant impact on their field.
The successful candidate will be expected to:
- Undertake a self-directed programme of research and scholarship at a level commensurate with the current international standards of excellence within the department.
- Demonstrate a proven ability or potential for achieving research excellence.
- Promote the reputation of the research group through scientific meetings, scholarship and other externally facing activities.
- Deliver an excellent student experience through innovative teaching and assessment methods for both undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes.
- Provide supervision to Postgraduate Research Students.
- Enthusiastically contribute to academic management and support the administration and organisation of the department to further its education, research activities and ambitions.
The above list of responsibilities may not be exhaustive, and the post holder will be required to undertake such tasks and responsibilities as may reasonably be expected within the scope and grading of the post.
