The Biomathematics Group within the Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics Section in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College is seeking applications for two Lecturer/Senior Lecturer positions, starting on 01 June 2021 or thereafter.

Further information about the research environment can be found in the Departmental website (, the Applied Section website (, and the Biomathematics Group website (

Duties and responsibilities

The successful candidates will work in the field of biomathematics and will undertake a self-directed program of research and scholarship at a level commensurate with the current standards of excellence in the Department of Mathematics and Imperial College. The role will involve lecturing undergraduate and post-graduate courses, supervising research and PhD students, and managing staff, such as postdoctoral Research Associates. The successful candidates will promote the reputation of the Group, the Section, the Department, and the College through scientific activities and other scholarly activities. The research programme of the successful candidates will be in the field of Biomathematics broadly interpreted, with no restrictions on the areas of interest and expertise but with a clear focus on research that impacts biomedical science. Areas of current interest in the Biomathematics Group include mathematical and biophysical modelling of processes in cellular and molecular biology; applications of networks and graph theory in biology, medicine and social science; stochastic processes in biology and medicine; mathematics for data science and precision healthcare; methodological frameworks based on dynamical systems, statistical inference, and machine learning; computational social science and computational biology. The Biomathematics Group combines a broad range of mathematical techniques with in-depth interactions with biomedical data and experiments. The Group is central to various cross-College Centres spanning disciplines, from biology and medicine to engineering, computer science and business, and is a key participant in several Centres for Doctoral Training. The Biomathematics Group is strongly and actively committed to a diverse environment.

Essential requirements

• A PhD (or equivalent) in Applied Mathematics, Physics, Mathematical Engineering, Computer Science or a closely related discipline

• Research interests in an area of Biomathematics, broadly interpreted

• The ability to conduct an independent research programme at the highest level of quality and impact

• An excellent record of research, evidenced by a portfolio of research publications commensurate with career stage

• The ability to interact effectively with the broad range of research expertise in the Department of Mathematics, bringing together mathematical links to develop their research programme

• A strong record of working across disciplines and taking the initiative in formulating and developing mathematics cross-disciplinary collaborations with biomedical scientists with publication in venues read by significant numbers of biological or medical scientists

• Experience of teaching at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level across a range of subjects in Biomathematics, Applied Mathematics and related areas

• The ability to take an active role in teaching and supervision

• Excellent verbal and written communication skills, particularly with the ability to communicate with researchers in non-mathematical disciplines
