Lecturer (equivalent to tenure-track Assistant Professor in the US system) in Pure Mathematics

We seek an outstanding candidate for a Lectureship in Pure Mathematics. You will join the Pure Mathematics Group within the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol and will be expected to demonstrate outstanding research potential in an area within pure mathematics.


The Pure Mathematics Group at the University of Bristol is internationally recognised with interests spanning pure mathematics, including number theory, arithmetic geometry, arithmetic combinatorics, ergodic theory, random matrix theory, group theory, representation theory, complex analysis, partial differential equations, analysis on metric spaces, set theory and logic. The Group has strong links with the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, which focuses on discrete mathematics and funds about 20 postdoctoral fellows in the School of Mathematics.


We seek applicants whose research further broadens and expands upon the strengths of the existing group. We particularly welcome suitably qualified female applicants, as women are currently under-represented in the School of Mathematics. The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics http://www.maths.bris.ac.uk/admin/life/women/
