Applications are invited for an Assistant Professor of Geometry and Mathematical Sciences in the School of Mathematics.

Information about the School is available at:

The School of Mathematics is committed to significantly expand its research and education programmes in Geometry and Mathematical Physics. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct high-quality research in related areas and to develop and deliver undergraduate and postgraduate education in Geometry and Mathematical Physics. In addition, the successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the school through management/leadership, securing grants, and enterprise activities, as appropriate.

The School consists of over 70 research active academic staff, around 20 postdoctoral researchers and around 50 postgraduates, with research groups in Algebra, Analysis, Combinatorics, Probability and Algorithms, Continuum Mechanics and Nonlinear Systems, Data Science and Computational Statistics, Financial Mathematics, Geometry and Mathematical Physics, Mathematical Biology and Healthcare, Mathematics Education, Optimization and Numerical Analysis, Topology and Dynamical Systems.

The minimum qualification is a PhD (or equivalent) in Mathematics or a related area. Candidates are expected to have or clearly be developing an internationally recognized research record in Geometry and Mathematical Physics, and a solid commitment to teaching, mentoring and service. Full consideration will be given to applicants with research interests in any area of Geometry and Mathematics and applicants with specialisms in algebraic geometry, symplectic geometry, string theory, supersymmetric quantum field theory, and related areas are especially invited to apply. Please include a CV (with publication list, highlighting one's 4 best publications and three references to contact at interview stage) and research statement in your application.

The Geometry and Mathematical Physics group currently hosts 4 academic staff, 5 postdoctoral researchers, a teaching fellow and 10 postgraduates. The group currently conducts research across algebraic geometry, integrable systems, symplectic geometry, and high-energy theoretical physics. The successful candidate will expand and complement the group’s current research portfolio.

The School of Mathematics aims to provide a supportive and friendly environment for staff to develop as researchers and lecturers. The School is a supportive and people-focused friendly environment, committed to equality, diversity and inclusivity. We encourage applications from the widest community and provide equal opportunities in our recruitment processes.

The School of Mathematics holds an Athena SWAN Bronze award. Athena SWAN is a national initiative that recognises the advancement of gender equality, representation, progression and success for all in academia.

The School also supports the London Mathematical Society Good Practice Scheme, whose aim is to support mathematics departments to embed equal opportunities for women within their working practices, and is a member of the Piscopia which forms a UK-community of women and non-binary students and mathematics researchers.

The University of Birmingham holds the Advance HE's Race Equality Charter Bronze award, a framework through which we are working to self-reflect, identify and remove barriers standing in the way of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic staff and students. The University of Birmingham is an equal opportunity employer. In addition to completing the application form, you should make sure to upload the following: a cover letter, a CV (including full publication list and your teaching experience), a research statement (including your future plans, 4 pages maximum), and names and emails of three referees who have agreed to provide references before 28 January 2024.
