*** The account for School of Mathematics & Statistics, University of Sheffield has expired. ***

Are you interested in working for a world top 100 University?

We are seeking to make a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer appointment in Mathematical Biology. Your research interests will be focused on the application of mathematical techniques to biological phenomena. Examples of relevant research interests could include, but are not limited to, ecology, cell and developmental biology, epidemiology, population dynamics, or cancer. You will have a strong track record in constructing and using mechanistic mathematical models to understand biological systems. You should also be committed to delivering high-quality teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels and will be required to supervise MSc dissertations.

Applied Mathematics research is organised within clusters. These are: fluid dynamics; gravitation and cosmology; mathematical biology and environmental dynamics; and solar physics and plasma dynamics. 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.

Within the mathematical biology and environmental dynamics cluster, 6 academic staff and around 10 PhD students and postdoctoral researchers form the mathematical biology group (, which develops and uses a wide range of mathematical and statistical approaches to study questions in areas including spatial ecology, cell and developmental biology, cancer, epidemiology, and evolution. Members of the group collaborate widely both within the University of Sheffield and further afield, through joint supervision of PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, and through membership of interdisciplinary research centres.

You will have A PhD in a relevant area and expertise in developing and using mathematical models of biological systems. 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.
