Job Details

EPSRC Postdoctoral Research Associate

Mathematical Institute, Andrew Wiles Building, Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, Woodstock Road, Oxford

Grade 7: £32,817 – £40,322 p.a.


We invite applications from skilled mathematical scientists coming to the end of their doctorate studies at the University of Oxford for up to six Postdoctoral Research Associate positions, funded by EPSRC. These are full time positions, fixed-term for 12 months, and the successful candidates will be based either at the Mathematical Institute or Department of Statistics. Candidates are asked to declare as part of their application which of the two departments they consider to be a better fit with their research.

These positions are designed to enable talented mathematical scientists who have recently completed their doctorate to further establish research independence and to diversify their interests. The successful applicants will have already produced excellent research during their PhD. They will be free to conduct their own research programme.

To aid the development of their academic profile, Postdoctoral Research Associates will be required to contribute up to three hours of departmental teaching per week for the 24 weeks of each academic year, averaged over the period of the Fellowship to allow for extended visits elsewhere.

Candidates will have, or be close to completing, a DPhil in mathematics or a related discipline which falls predominantly within the mathematical sciences remit as defined by EPSRC. To be eligible for the position, they must have successfully completed the viva for their doctorate, with at most minor corrections, before the starting date of their position. They must also show evidence of independence and the ability to undertake research of the highest academic standard, hold an outstanding record of research (commensurate with career stage), and have a realisable research plan which would enhance the research profile of either the Mathematical Institute or Department of Statistics. Additional information about the post, and a full list of selection criteria, are available in the job description.

Please direct informal enquiries to the Recruitment Coordinator at the email address given below, quoting vacancy reference 149619.

Applicants should read the job description before submitting their application. You will be required to upload a curriculum vitae including full list of publications and the details of any teaching experience, a statement which includes a research plan for the Fellowship and addresses specific points as detailed in the ‘How to Apply’ section of the job description, and the names and contact details of two members from the Mathematical Institute and/or Department of Statistics who would be able to provide a short statement in support of your application. (PLEASE NOTE: Applicants are responsible for contacting their nominated members and making sure that their statements of support are received by the closing date).

The Mathematical Institute and Department of Statistics strongly encourage applications from all who consider that they meet the requirements for the post, and especially from women and black and minority ethnic candidates who are under-represented in posts of this type at Oxford. The departments hold a Silver and Bronze Athena SWAN Award respectively, in recognition of their commitment to tackling gender inequality.

Only applications received before 12.00 noon on Wednesday 3 March 2021 can be considered.
