10th October 2017 : Lectureships at Bristol

Dear Colleagues,

Please bring the following position(s) to the attention of any suitable

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Applied Mathematics

The School of Mathematics, University of Bristol, is seeking to appoint
a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Applied Mathematics. Applied
Mathematics in the UK includes subject areas such as theoretical soft
matter, fluids and continuum mechanics. A Lecturer holds an indefinite
appointment roughly equivalent to an Assistant or Associate Professor in
the US system (depending on career stage); a Senior Lecturer/Reader is
equivalent to an Associate Professor.

The appointment is part of a major strategic expansion of the School of
Mathematics, which in spring 2018 will move to a substantial Grade-II
listed property, providing office space for over 100 academics, 100
post-graduate students and 80 post-docs. The building
currently being transformed into a state-of-the-art mathematics teaching
and research facility at a cost of £33M. The University is a member of
the prestigious Russell Group, is ranked among the top 50 universities
in the world, and 9th in the UK in the latest QS World University
Rankings. The Shanghai Ranking of Academic Subjects 2017 has ranked
Bristol’s School of Mathematics amongst the top 40 mathematics
departments worldwide.

We are looking for world-class researchers in any areas of applied and
industrial mathematics, including those currently not represented in the
School. The successful candidate will be based at the Institute for
Applied Mathematics, one of five research institutes in the School of
Mathematics.  The post-holder will be responsible for her or his own
research programme, carry out appropriate administrative tasks and
deliver excellence in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The School of Mathematics has currently further openings for
Lectureships/Senior Lectureships/Readerships in Mathematics,
Mathematical Physics, and Statistical Science. Candidates whose
expertise intersects with one of these areas are encouraged to submit
multiple applications as appropriate.

Informal enquires are welcome and can be directed to Prof. Jens Marklof
FRS (Head of School, maths-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk
) as well as the Institute
Director Prof. Stephen Wiggins (s.wiggins@bristol.ac.uk
