Heilbronn Institute Research Fellow

Full Time

The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £37,281 - £42,701 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

The UCL Department of Mathematics invites applications for a Research Fellow in association with the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research. The Research Fellow will divide their time equally between their own research and the research programme of the Heilbronn Institute, which offers opportunities to engage in collaborative work as well as individual projects. For more information about the Heilbronn Institute, see .

Due to the nature of the Heilbronn Institute's work, you must satisfy vetting before appointment. UK Resident UK nationals will normally be able to meet this condition: other potential applicants should consult the Heilbronn Manager (see below) about their eligibility before applying. You may become a member of the USS pension scheme.

There is a salary supplement of £3,500 per annum in recognition of the distinctive nature of the Fellowship. Payment of this supplement is conditional on a finished thesis having been accepted in final form, because we expect Heilbronn Fellows to hold PhDs before working at the Heilbronn Institute. In addition, a fund of at least £2,500 per annum to pay for research expenses will be available to the Fellow.

The Fellowship is funded by the Heilbronn Institute for three years in the first instance, with a preferred start date in October 2019, though another date may be possible by agreement.

Key Requirements

Applicants are required to hold a PhD or equivalent qualification in a relevant subject by the time they start this fellowship. They should have experience of leading independent research in the area of number theory and/or algebraic arithmetic geometry. Self-motivation, initiative and organisational skills in planning and carrying out research, as well as a proven publication record, will also be required, in addition to excellent written and oral communication skills in English. A record of successful supervision and mentoring of graduate students and research staff would also be desirable.
