Following significant strategic investment the School of Mathematics and Statistics invites applications for a Chair in Mathematics and Statistics with a start date of 1 January 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The appointee will carry out top-quality research in an area of mathematics or statistics, will provide scientific leadership, in a broad sense, and will have demonstrated the ability to contribute at the highest level to the School’s submission to the next REF. The successful candidate will have experience in successfully supervising postgraduate research students and will have demonstrated the ability to generate research funding at a high level for their particular discipline.
The post-holder will be expected to contribute fully to the School’s teaching and be willing to serve, in due course, in one of the senior positions in the School.
Preference may be given to candidates with potential for interaction with current members of the School and whose research interests fit well with the School’s present research profile, either by strengthening or complementing existing areas. Applicants are asked to make explicit comments in their application on the reasons why they fit with the School’s present research profile and on their current view of their potential contribution to the School’s REF submission.
