IMSS Senior Research Fellows in Mathematical and Statistical Science

Salary: £44,674-£52,701 per annum (inclusive of London allowance)

Duties and Responsibilities

UCL is investing strategically in Mathematics and Statistical Science, with the vision of creating a world-leading Institute of Mathematical and Statistical Science (IMSS). As part of this exciting expansion, we invite applications from outstanding postdoctoral researchers for Senior Research Fellows across the range of disciplines of the two departments. These are 3-year funded research posts at UCL for talented early-career mathematicians and statisticians to pursue an independent research programme.

There are four posts available:

  • IMSS Senior Research Fellow in Pure Mathematics
  • IMSS Senior Research Fellow in Applied Mathematics (including Financial Mathematics)
  • Two IMSS Senior Research Fellows in any area of Statistics and Applied Probability

Each fellow will receive a fund of £9000 (£3000 per year for 3 years) to support their research. Appointees will be expected to undertake high standard research in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics (including data science) or applied probability, leading to conference presentations and publication in leading journals. In addition, they will contribute to the research environment of the departments through interaction with staff and students and by participating in, and co-organising, IMSS events. A limited amount of teaching will be expected.

The posts are available from 1 March 2020 and successful applicants must be available to start no later than 1 October 2020.

We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as they are under-represented within UCL at this level.
We will consider applications to work on a part-time, flexible and job share basis wherever possible.
