Fellowship Description:    

*** this fellowship has been closed. ***

We invite applications from talented postdoctoral researchers for Hooke Research Fellowship. This prestigious Fellowship at the University of Oxford is fixed term for 24 months and provides an ideal opportunity for candidates to pursue an independent research programme. The successful candidate will be expected to take up the position by 1st April 2020 and no later than 30th June 2020. Applications for a job share or for part-time working to accommodate family circumstances will be considered.

Candidates for this Fellowship should have research interests compatible with those of the existing faculty in applied mathematics, including mathematical biology, mathematical and computational finance, numerical analysis and mathematical data science. The successful applicant will be a talented researcher, who has already produced excellent research during their PhD and in any postdoctoral positions. They will be free to conduct their own research programme.

To aid the development of their academic profile, the Fellow will be required to contribute up to three hours of departmental teaching per week for the 24 weeks of each academic year, averaged over the period of the Fellowship to allow for extended visits elsewhere.

The successful candidate will have, or be close to completing, a PhD in mathematics or a related discipline. They must show evidence of independence and the ability to undertake research of the highest academic standard, hold an outstanding record of papers published in major international journals (commensurate with career stage), and have a realisable and relevant research plan which would enhance the Mathematical Institute’s research profile. Additional information about the post, and a full list of selection criteria, are available in the job description. Please direct informal enquiries to the Recruitment Administrator (, quoting vacancy reference 141549.

Applicants should read the job description before writing their application. You will be required to upload a supporting letter setting out how you meet the selection criteria, a curriculum vitae including full list of publications with top three papers starred, a copy of your best paper, a statement of research interests and a plan for research during the Fellowship and the names and contact details of two referees as part of your online application. (NOTE: Applicants are responsible for contacting their referees and making sure that their letters are received by the closing date.)
