Fellowship Description:    

The School of Mathematics wishes to appoint five WHITTAKER RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS. We are seeking outstanding candidates to enhance the current strengths of the School, to connect existing areas of expertise within the School, or to pursue connections with application areas. The fellowships are each for three years and feature a 10% teaching duty.

The School intends to appoint at least one fellowship in each of its themes: Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACM); Analysis and Probability (AP); Optimization, Operational Research and Statistics (OORS); Structure & Symmetry (SS – featuring Algebra, Geometry, Mathematical Physics, Topology). Applications that sit between or beyond these themes or are based in Mathematical Sciences Education (MSE) are also welcome.

We will require references from three referees. The closing date for applications is 5pm (UK time) on November 21, 2019. Interviews will be held in December and you must be willing to take up the position on or before 1st July 2020. The starting salary will be in the range of £33,797 - £40,322, depending on experience.

If potential candidates have any academic questions they are encouraged to make contact with Professor Iain Gordon (Head of School) by email: hos@maths.ed.ac.uk. Any questions of an administrative nature should be directed to hr@maths.ed.ac.uk. The University of Edinburgh promotes equality and diversity, holds a Bronze Athena SWAN award and supports the LMS Good Practice Scheme. We strive for a family-friendly School of Mathematics.

Application Procedure

The School intends to appoint at least one fellowship in each of its themes: Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACM); Analysis and Probability (AP); Optimization, Operational Research and Statistics (OORS); Structure & Symmetry (SS – featuring Algebra, Geometry, Mathematical Physics, Topology). Applications that sit between or beyond these themes or are based in Mathematical Sciences Education (MSE) are also welcome.

You should apply online by clicking the apply link at the bottom of this page and submitting:

• your current CV, including publication list • an outline of your proposed future research programme • a file entitled YYY.pdf where YYY must equal one of ACM, AP, OORS, SS or MSE indicating to which theme (see above) the research is most closely related. This one page file should be anonymous, so not have reference to your name or your co-authors (references can be numbered, referring to your publication list). It must include a five word descriptor of your research area; indicate the number of years since you completed your PhD (excluding career breaks); and give a concise summary of your existing research achievements. (You may include more than one theme if you think your research sits between them, for instance by labelling your file YYYZZZ.pdf where YYY and ZZZ are the themes.)

In addition we will require references from three referees. The application process is quick and easy to follow, and you will receive email confirmation of safe receipt of your application. The online system allows you to submit all the required attachments.

We anticipate interviews will be held in December. You will be notified by email whether you have been shortlisted for interview or not.

The closing date is 5pm (UK time) on 21 November 2019.
