The School of Mathematics is seeking to appoint a Lecturer (analogous to Assistant Professor), Senior Lecturer, or Associate Professor in mathematical physics, the level of appointment depending on the experience of the successful candidate. We are looking for world-class researchers in any area of mathematical physics, including those currently not represented in the School. The post-holder will join the Institute for Mathematical Physics and will be responsible for undertaking independent research, teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students, and carrying out appropriate administrative tasks.
The School is one of the UK’s leading centres for mathematics (ranked 4th for research intensity and joint 5th for GPA in the national REF2014 assessment). Comprising over 140 academic, research and professional services staff, the School has recently moved to its new home in the historic Grade II-listed Fry Building in the heart of the University precinct. Following a £33 million three-year renovation project, the Fry Building provides state-of-the-art facilities for mathematics teaching and research.
The School has strong links with the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, a national facility headquartered in Bristol that supports a broad range of mathematical research across the UK. HIMR currently funds over 20 postdoctoral fellows in the School of Mathematics and sponsors numerous seminar series, workshops, conferences and visitor programmes that extend and enrich our research environment.
The University of Bristol offers competitive salaries, an outstanding research environment and access to excellent students. The city of Bristol is routinely ranked as the best city to live in the UK, and is a major centre for technology, innovation and creativity.
The School of Mathematics is committed to equal opportunities and to promoting diversity and an inclusive working environment. It is an Athena SWAN Silver Award holder, and supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics. We particularly welcome applications from women and minorities for this post.
Informal enquires are welcome and can be directed to: Prof Jonathan Robbins, Head of School of Mathematics, email@example.com & Prof Francesco Mezzadri, Director, Institute of Mathematical Physics, firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that it is the applicant's responsibility to ensure their referees send a letter of reference by email to email@example.com by the deadline of 6 January 2020
We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
