Permanent Position 

The Warwick Mathematics Institute and the School of Engineering are looking to recruit an exceptional individual to contribute to the research and educational goals of the Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling (WCPM). WCPM is an interdisciplinary research centre focussed on the development of modern scientific computing paradigms and their application in science and engineering research. 

We are looking for candidates with a strong applied mathematics or scientific computing background. Applicants with expertise in uncertainty quantification, inverse problems and machine learning and an interest in multiscale or multiphysics problems are particularly encouraged. The successful candidate will have an ability to work across traditional discipline boundaries and multiple departments. 

Key duties include independent and collaborative research, development of research partnerships with colleagues across the university, supervision of PhD students and post-doctoral fellows and contributing to the teaching needs of the Warwick Mathematics Institute and/or School of Engineering. 

All applicants must include both a Curriculum Vitae and a two-page outline of their plans and intentions for research activities and grant capture over five years. This bespoke plan will be treated in the strictest confidence and with full respect for ownership. This is a mandatory component of our selection process, without which we will be unable to progress your application. 

The University aims to promote work life balance for all employees and the School of Engineering will consider a range of possible flexible working arrangements in order to recruit the best candidate. 

The School of Engineering and Warwick Mathematics Institute are committed to the principles of the Athena SWAN Charter which recognises work undertaken to address gender equality, representation and progression for all staff working in an academic environment.
