Prize Fellows

To further enhance our academic base, we are making a strategic investment by recruiting two University of Bath Prize Fellows.

The initial appointment will be to a fixed-term Research Fellow post with the expectation of transfer to a permanent Lectureship at the end of year two, or exceptionally at the end of year three. This is an opportunity for outstanding post-doctoral researchers to develop their academic career in a supportive and well-resourced research environment. The postholders will be expected to pursue an independent programme of research, including publishing in top quality journals and securing external research grants.

The Fellows will be based in our Probability Laboratory, Prob-L@B and appointments will be in two areas.

Bath Prize Fellow in Probability

The appointee will work in an area which resonates with the existing strengths of Prob-L@B. These include branching models, geometric probability, stochastic models at criticality, stochastic analysis, random environments, and optimal stopping.

Bath Prize Fellow in Mathematical Sciences

The appointee will enhance Prob-L@B activities by working in an area of mathematical sciences with strong connections to probability. He or she will improve existing or establish new connections to other groups in the department. Possible research areas include stochastic differential equations, probabilistic genetics, mathematical statistics, probabilistic inverse problems, uncertainty quantification, complexity science and multiscale methods.

When applying, applicants should upload a CV and a 2-page outline of their research plans over the next 3-5 years, demonstrating how these fit in with the profiles described above.

Interviews will take place on Wednesday January 30th or Thursday January 31st, 2013.
