This appointment is part of an ongoing programme to further strengthen applied mathematics at Manchester, especially in the area of industrially focused mathematical modelling. Applications are welcome from researchers in any area of applied mathematics with interdisciplinary or industrial mathematical focus, and which complements the current activities of the School. We especially encourage applications that strengthen research activity between groups within the School or enable us to create new links with other schools, institutions or industrial partners.
Your primary duties will lie in research and teaching, with some administrative duties. You will be expected to work with the School’s established collaborators from industry and to build independent and externally-funded research programmes in any areas which complement and strengthen existing fields of research, and which are aligned with the University and Faculty research strategies.
You must have (or be on course for) a PhD in a relevant discipline with research experience in an area of applied or industrial mathematics. You possess a record of original high-quality research, with evidence given by publications in internationally-leading journals and the ability to make a significant contribution to the School's research activities. You will show evidence of, or potential for, knowledge transfer to industry. You have a record of applying for, or the potential to apply successfully for research grants from research councils and industrial organisations and be able to manage these awards. You will have the ability to deliver high-quality lectures and tutorials/supervisions to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
