The School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield is advertising a permanent position in Algebra, Geometry and Topology, including interactions with Mathematical Physics. The appointment will be made at either Senior Lecturer or Chair level (roughly equivalent to Associate Professor and Full Professor respectively) according to the experience of the successful candidate.

Applicants should be committed to delivering high-quality teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and have demonstrated the ability to generate research funding. For the Chair position they are expected to have a sustained track record of rigorous and original research in pure mathematics, and be able to demonstrate the potential to help build and lead a diverse and successful research group. A Chair would also be expected to help guide the future strategic direction of the School.

The School currently has sixty members of academic staff, of whom approximately a third are in the Pure Mathematics group. There is a strong research ethos and an international reputation in research. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), 89% of our submission was judged to be either international excellent or world leading.

We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.

We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.

We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
