ACADEMIC VACANCIES (in order of closing date)
- Research Fellow: Applications are invited for 2 postdoctoral research fellow positions to work with Dr Christoph Ortner on the analysis and numerical analysis of multi-scale models for crystalline solids. Each post will initially have a 2 year duration. You will have possession of a PhD or equivalent in Mathematics, Statistics or a closely allied discipline and excellence in published work in relevant fields. You will have the ability to develop and deliver high-quality research and to publish in peer-reviewed journals and experience of, and strong research potential in some of the following areas: numerical analysis, scientific computing, electronic structure, molecular dynamics, applied/computational probability, multi-scale analysis. Ref No: 74636-014. Closing Date: Friday 21st February 2014.
- Research Fellow: For a project www.warwick.ac.uk/LMF funded by a six year (2013-2019) Programme Grant "LMF: L-functions and Modular Forms" awarded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to the Universities of Warwick and Bristol, we seek up to 2 highly motivated post-doctoral researchers to work at Warwick under the supervision of Professors John Cremona and Samir Siksek. You will contribute to one or more aspects of the LMF research programme, which include computations with L-functions, modular forms and elliptic curves over number fields. Previous experience in one or more of these areas is essential.
You will be supported by a generous allowance for travel to conferences and will have the opportunity to visit our Project Partners at the University of Waterloo (Canada), University of Washington (Seattle, USA), AIM (Palo Alto, USA) and ICTP (Trieste, Italy). You must have a PhD or equivalent in Mathematics, with a specialisation in number theory. Ref No: 74674-024. Closing Date: Monday 17 March 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.
ERC Consolidator Grants: Up to 5 years of funding for researchers of any age and nationality with 8-12 years of postdoctoral research experience. Includes funding for a team of researchers (PhD students / postdocs). Extra funding for applicants moving from a non-EU country. Deadline: 21st February 2013
Leverhulme Early Career Fellowships: 3 years funding for those with a UK degree (PhD at least submitted), and/or a temporary academic position in the UK, and no permanent post in the UK. Deadline: 7th March 2013.
The 2012 closing dates for the fellowships below have passed, but it is likely that there will be further rounds (with similar closing dates) in future years.
Newton International Fellowships (Royal Society link)(2 years funding plus follow-up money for 10 years) for junior researchers (PhD or 1-2 postdoc positions).
