We invite applications from talented postdoctoral researchers for Hooke Research Fellowships. These prestigious Fellowships at the University of Oxford are full-time, fixed term up to 36 months and provide an ideal opportunity for candidates to pursue an independent research programme. The Department is also advertising a similar fellowship scheme for Titchmarch Research Fellows.

Altogether up to 6 full-time positions are available: 3 Hooke Fellowships and 3 Titchmarsh Fellowships. Five of these are funded by a gift from Elsevier, and one will be held in association with The Queen’s College. Applications for job shares or for part-time working to accommodate family circumstances will be considered.

We anticipate one of the six Fellowships being offered in the mathematics of Data Science/Information.

Candidates for Hooke Fellowships should have research interests compatible with those of the existing faculty in applied mathematics, including mathematical biology, mathematical and computational finance and numerical analysis. The successful applicants will be talented researchers, who have already produced excellent research during their PhD and in any postdoctoral positions. They will be free to conduct their own research programme.

To aid the development of their academic profile, Fellows will be required to contribute up to three hours of departmental teaching per week for the 24 weeks of each academic year, averaged over the period of the Fellowship to allow for extended visits elsewhere.

Candidates will have, or be close to completing, a PhD in mathematics or a related discipline. They must show evidence of independence and the ability to undertake research of the highest academic standard, hold an outstanding record of papers published in major international journals (commensurate with career stage), and have a realisable and relevant research plan which would enhance the Mathematical Institute’s research profile. Additional information about the post, and a full list of selection criteria, are available in the job description. Please direct informal enquiries to the Recruitment Administrator (email:, quoting vacancy reference 137400.

Applicants should read the job description before writing their application. You will be required to upload a supporting letter setting out how you meet the selection criteria, a curriculum vitae including full list of publications with top three papers starred, a copy of your best paper, a statement of research interests including a plan for research during the Fellowship, and the names and contact details of two referees as part of your online application. (NOTE: Applicants are responsible for contacting their referees and making sure that their letters are received by the closing date.)
