Lectureships in Mathematics

College of Engineering and Physical Sciences

School of Mathematics

Salary from £37,012 to £49,689

Applications are invited for two Lectureship posts in the School of Mathematics, in Pure Mathematics and in Applied Mathematics.

In Pure Mathematics the School is looking for someone to join the Analysis research group. The successful candidate would join an energetic and outward-facing analysis group with internationally-recognised strengths in Harmonic Analysis, Geometric Analysis, Geometric Measure Theory, Discrete Dynamical Systems and a variety of aspects of linear and nonlinear Partial Differential Equations. The Analysis Group at Birmingham enjoys a close relationship with a rapidly-developing Combinatorics group, and first-class candidates that would strengthen such emerging interactions are also encouraged to apply.

The Applied Mathematics group is looking to expand its research in mathematical areas that include applied analysis, nonlinear systems, nonlinear PDE, inverse problems, reaction diffusion equations, mathematical biology, dynamical systems, asymptotic methods and nonlinear waves. Candidates who can interact between these research groups in Pure and Applied Mathematics are also encouraged.

The successful candidates will have a PhD (or equivalent) in a branch of Mathematics, a first- class research record in Mathematics, and a commitment to teaching, along with excellent communication skills.

The appointees will be expected to expand or complement present research areas in the School, develop research collaboration inside and outside the School and University, and assist in the design, development and delivery of teaching in Mathematics.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr Jonathan Bennett (tel. +44 121 414 6579, email, Professor David Needham (tel. +44 121 414 6593, email, or the Head of School, Professor Stephen Decent (tel. +44 121 414 7566, email
