Valuing Diversity & Committed to Equality
The Department of Mathematics is a registered supporter of the London Mathematical Society’s (LMS) Good Practice Scheme which supports advancing women’s careers in university mathematics departments.
We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and have policies to support staff with flexible arrangements for parental responsibilities or those returning from a long-term absence. As part of the department’s commitment we are working towards holding an Athena SWAN bronze award. We positively encourage women applicants and those from an ethnic minority to apply, as they are currently under-represented within the Department of Mathematics.
