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

http://www.le.ac.uk/newblood/mathematics.html 

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

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 
theory.

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.

Pure Mathematics

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 
2007.
