Applications are invited from suitably qualified individuals for a Stipendiary Lectureship in Applied Mathematics, tenable from 1 September 2023 for one year in the first instance. There is the possibility of appointing two candidates, each to a 3-hour post.

It is anticipated that the post will provide a promising academic, currently engaged in research, with a career development opportunity. The appointee will be able to develop skills in teaching and the academic administration of subjects involving Mathematics in a research-intensive environment.

The post-holder would be required to undertake six contact hours of College undergraduate teaching per week during term and you will be responsible for teaching courses from the first and second year Applied Mathematics syllabus. It would also be expected that the candidate would teach international visiting students.

The lecturer may be required to contribute to the Intercollegiate Class Scheme, run in conjunction with the Mathematical Institute, which involves giving a set of classes for a third or fourth year undergraduate course. The appointee may also be required to help with supervision of a Mathematics Project.

You will also serve as Personal Tutor (both director of studies & pastoral support) for some Mathematics undergraduates or visiting students, the setting and marking of collections (college examinations). The lecturer will also share responsibility for co-ordinating and organising Collections for all students reading Mathematics, including marking those collections promptly.

The lecturer will take part in the annual undergraduate admissions exercise in December, which will include interviewing applicants.

The post-holder will be paid on the Senior Tutors' Committee stipendiary lecturer scale (£14,381 to £16,174 per annum for 6 hours at current 2022/23 rates) with pension and with entitlement to some meals without charge during University term. The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 12 May 2023.
