The Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research invites applications for Heilbronn Research Fellowships. Fellows divide their time equally between their own research and the internal research programme of the Heilbronn Institute, which offers opportunities to engage in collaborative work as well as individual projects. Fellowships can be held at any of our partner institutions: Imperial College London, King’s College London, University of Bristol, University College London, University of Manchester.

The process for applying is different this year: candidates only need to make one application, even if they are interested in applying for a Fellowship in two or more of our host institutions. Applicants can indicate their preferred host institutions. The selection committee will include a representative from each partner institution.

Research areas of interest include, but are not restricted to, Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics, Computational Statistics, Data Science, Number Theory, Probability, and Quantum Information. These areas are interpreted broadly: Fellows have previously been appointed with backgrounds in most areas of Pure Mathematics and Statistics, and in several areas of Mathematical/Theoretical Physics.

Due to the nature of the Heilbronn Institute's work, Fellows must satisfy vetting before appointment. UK resident UK nationals will normally be able to meet this condition: other potential applicants should consult the Heilbronn Manager ( about their eligibility before applying.

The salary range for these Fellowships is £38,017-£42,792 depending on previous experience, plus the London weighting where appropriate. There is a salary supplement of £3.5K pa, in recognition of the distinctive nature of these Fellowships. Payment of this supplement is conditional on a finished PhD thesis having been accepted in final form (we expect Fellows to hold a PhD before working at the Heilbronn Institute). In addition, a fund of at least £2.5K pa to pay for research expenses will be available to each Fellow.

The Fellowship will be for three years, with a start date in October 2020, though another date may be possible by prior agreement. Extensions for up to a further three years are possible, and may be held at a wider range of universities.
The Heilbronn Institute is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aimed at advancing women’s careers in mathematics and we particularly welcome applications from women for this post. For more information, please see

Please visit our website to complete an application form. In order for applications to be complete, applicants will also need to send a one page statement of proposed research, along with a CV, to the Heilbronn Manager, and arrange for three letters of reference to be emailed to the same address, prior to the closing date.

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.
