Job Type Academic (non-clinical)
Hours of Work Full time
The Applied Mathematics section currently consists of eleven permanent staff: six professors, one reader, one senior lecturer, and three lecturers. The section has a strong record of activity in a wide range of areas of theoretical physics, mathematical physics, and astrophysics, some in collaboration with experimentalists and observers. We have frequent visitors and a wide network of collaborators.
Research interests of the group include radio astronomy, astrophysical fluid dynamics (in particular dynamo action and magneto convection), galactic, solar and geophysical magneto-hydrodynamics, quantum field theory, cosmology and quantum gravity, vortex dynamics, superfluidity and Bose-Einstein condensation in quantum fluids and gases including dipolar gases, finite-temperature effects and related aspects of quantum optics. Some staff in Applied Mathematics are also involved in population models of archaeology and prehistory.
