York St John is an ambitious, modern university at the heart of historic York and there has never been a more exciting time to join us.

Significant investment in our campus and facilities, the development of forward-thinking new partnerships and an enhanced range of contemporary courses have helped make us one of the fastest growing universities in the UK over recent years.

Now we are building on that achievement, with a new Strategy for the next decade, emphasising our commitment to widening opportunity through the power of education and contributing our talents to creating a fairer world, and a more prosperous region. We are putting inspirational learning and impactful research at the heart of this strategy, recognising our academic expertise as our greatest asset and investing in enabling this expertise to thrive.

We are currently recruiting for a Senior Lecturer in Mathematical Sciences in order to complement our existing interdisciplinary expertise in Applied Statistics, Mathematics and Computer Science. The role is initially offered full-time (1.0 FTE) for 2 years.

They will be responsible for shaping and delivering the mathematics underpinning the undergraduate curriculum for the Mathematical Sciences (Mathematics and Data Science), in particular the foundations of data science in Algebra and Analysis for our growing Data Science Degree Apprenticeship programme, with a view to more advanced data science applications and techniques. A well-developed record of research at an international level is considered essential. The successful candidate is expected to be committed to excellence in teaching and research, to be open to new collaborations across the School or University and with an interest in impactful, interdisciplinary or industry-related applications of Mathematical and Data Science techniques.
