Subject: Full faculty position in math finance

Oxford University has just announced a Lectureship in Mathematical Finance,
based in the Mathematical Institute, and I am writing to ask for your help
in bringing it to the attention of any strong potential candidates. The post
arises out of the success of our part-time Masters course in Mathematical
Finance, and the teaching duties will be largely on that programme. The
lecturer will also be a Fellow of St Catherine's College and will do a small
amount of tutorial teaching there.

Finance is an area in which Oxford is increasingly significant, and our aim
is to be one of the leading centres for the subject in Europe. We have a
strong and diverse group of faculty working in the area, in Mathematics and
elsewhere, and we attract excellent graduate students.

Details of the post are on  <http://www.maths.ox.ac.uk/notices/vacancies/>
http://www.maths.ox.ac.uk/notices/vacancies/ . Note that in addition to the
advertised university salary, the college will pay a housing allowance; a
substantial supervision fee is paid for supervising part-time masters
students, and there is the opportunity to undertake up to 30 days of
consultancy per year without loss of salary.

Either Sam or Terry will be happy to try to answer any other questions you
may have.

Best regards

Jeff Dewynne
