ACADEMIC VACANCIES (in order of closing date)
Please note that referees are required to send three letters of recommendation by the closing date for all academic vacancies (see linked adverts for details).
- Research Fellow: You will research in "Thermodynamic formalism and flows on moduli space" and be part of the research activities in Dynamical Systems, Ergodic Theory and Geometry led by Professor Mark Pollicott.
You will have a PhD or equivalent qualification in Mathematics. You will have experience of, and strong research potential in, thermodynamic formalism, hyperbolic dynamics, symbolic dynamics or the geometry of surfaces. You will receive support for conference travel. Informal enquiries: Professor Mark Pollicott at M.Pollicott@warwick.ac.uk.
Ref No: 74984-064. Closing Date: Wednesday 9th July 2014.
Research Fellow: Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research fellowship in an ERC Advanced Grant project "Local Structure of Sets, Measures and Currents" to work with Professor David Preiss on the problems related to the study of local structure of sets and functions in the classical Euclidean setting, in infinite dimensional Banach spaces and in the modern setting of analysis on metric spaces. Informal enquiries: Professor David Preiss at D.Preiss@warwick.ac.uk.
Ref No: 75035-064. Closing Date: Wednesday 30th July 2014.
- Assistant Professor (Warwick Zeeman Lectureship): Applications are invited from candidates who show outstanding promise and are seeking an opportunity to further their career at one of the UK’s top rated departments in an environment that nurtures and encourages both research and teaching. You will be expected to contribute to maintaining and enhancing the department’s high standards in both of these areas.
Additionally you will have the capability and interest to develop existing and new, complementary research areas in collaboration with industry and with other academic colleagues. The post is co-funded by AVL Powertrain UK and you will be expected to spend some of your time fostering this relationship; this includes applying for relevant grants in collaboration with AVL. Industrial experience is not however a pre-requisite for the post.
Ref No: 74985-064. Closing Date: Thursday 4th September 2014.
- Posts supported by funded Fellowships (see below and contact Dept well in advance).
NB: Assistant Professor = Lecturer; Associate Professor = Senior Lecturer/Reader.
The Department has an annual academic job round for a number of Assistant Professorships (Lectureships); available positions will be advertised when confirmed. Links to individual adverts for currently open positions can be found above.
We advertise several junior research positions (postdoc positions = research fellowships) each year. If you would like to work in the Department in such a position, please contact a member of staff in your research area. Some possible sources of funding are listed in the right hand column. See also general information About the Institute, a list of staff research interests, or contact the Department Secretary if you have particular questions.
Please be sure to contact us in plenty of time before application deadlines. Thank you.
There are several competitive Fellowship schemes to support talented researchers who do not currently have a permanent UK position, for periods of 1-5 years. These are offered by the Royal Society and by the EU/ERC. All provide a full salary plus support for travel, computing, etc; some, as described below, offer funding for a research team. The person who wishes to hold the Fellowship applies via a nominated host institution (which need not be their current home institution, and several of the schemes actively encourage or even demand mobility). Warwick has hosted several holders of such Fellowships in the past. We welcome enquiries from anyone considering applying for such Fellowships nominating Warwick as the host institution. Please either contact a relevant member of the academic staff or email the Head of Department giving brief details of the planned application. We need to know well in advance for administrative reasons, but we can also offer help in deciding which scheme is right for you and navigating through the financial and eligibility regulations etc. There are other competitions for more senior fellowships suitable for researchers who already have a permanent position; please contact us if you would like to apply to hold one of these Fellowships in Warwick.
There is a relatively new approach to EPSRC Fellowships. At present it is possible to apply in Mathematics only in the areas of "Intradisciplinary Mathematics" (sic - Intra and not Inter), "Maths/ICT Interface", and "Statistics and Applied Probability" (see link and the annexes in the pdf download). Under the new scheme there are no strict deadlines for applications (but applications are only considered twice a year) . Anyone wishing to apply to hold a Fellowship at Warwick (and who believes they might be eligible) should contact us.
