From: "Grigoriev, Dr P." <pg82 at leicester.ac.uk>
Subject: lectureship in math.finance or math.biology
2 lectureships are opened at the University of Leicester.
One position in Financial Mathematics or Mathematical Biology and
another in Pure Mathematics
These "new blood lecturer" positions assume reduced level of teaching
for the first four years (no teaching in the first year). More
information about the new blood scheme and the application procedures
can be found at
Salary will be on the Lecturer grade 8 scale (from August 2007 £32,796
to £40,335 and exceptionally to £45,397). The expected starting date
is September 1 2007.
Closing date for applications is March 20th 2007. Interviews are
expected in April. The expected starting date is 1st September 2007.
The Department of Mathematics has two New Blood positions, one in Pure
Mathematics and one in Applied Mathematics. New Blood appointments
carry reduced teaching and administrative loads and start up funding.
In addition to these positions there is the possibility of two further
appointments, one in Pure Mathematics and one in Applied Mathematics.
Applied Mathematics at Leicester has an international reputation for
computational modelling and algorithm development and in applied
dynamics, from molecular dynamics to modelling of complex materials,
chemical and physical kinetics, stochastic models with physical and
financial applications, biological mathematics and approximation
The Applied Maths group has a growing interest in the areas of
mathematical biology and financial and actuarial mathematics, and is
seeking to appoint excellent scholars in these areas.
The Applied Mathematics Group achieved a grade 5 in the last Research
Assessment Exercise. It works within a nexus of strong research groups
at the University of Leicester, gathered together at the University's
Centre for Mathematical Modelling (MMC). The MMC supports a number of
interdisciplinary research projects linking mathematics with groups in
physics, engineering and other sciences. National and international
seminars and workshops are regularly run by the Group, many of these
linking to other areas of the sciences. The MMC operates a 160 Opteron
CPU computer cluster. The Group has a strong track record of
developing excellent young applied mathematicians. The Group is
currently developing stronger research links with the grade 5
departments of Physics and Astronomy, Engineering, Biology, and
Economics, and the grade 5* Department of Genetics.
Leicester has a strong, established research group in Pure Mathematics
covering a range of algebraic, topological and geometric topics, and
with a particular emphasis on the relationships between these areas
and other parts of mathematics. The group currently has, or has
recently enjoyed, funding for specific projects from many sources
including the EU, EPSRC, Leverhulme Trust, Nuffield Foundation,
British Council, Royal Society and the LMS, and is frequently host or
organiser of international meetings and workshops.
In response to its grade 5 RAE success in 2001, the group has
continued to grow with recent and forthcoming appointments.
Closing date for applications is March 20th 2007. Salary will be on
the Lecturer grade 8 scale (from August 2007 £32,796 to £40,335 and
exceptionally to £45,397). The expected starting date is September 1
