Dear Colleagues,
I would like to let you know that the following faculty position is 
available at the University of Bristol. Researchers working on 
application of dynamical systems and network theory to neuroscience are 
most welcome to apply.
Best wishes,
Rafal Bogacz

Senior Lecturer/Reader in Engineering Mathematics
Merchant Venturers' School of Engineering, University of Bristol, UK.

Contract:  Permanent
Salary:  £46510 - £52347
Closing date for applications:  9:00am 14 Jan 2011

We are seeking an outstanding individual to join the Department of 
Engineering Mathematics based in the Merchant Venturers School of 
Engineering (comprising of three departments and nine research groups). 
The appointment will be made at Senior Lecturer or Reader level although 
in exceptional cases a more senior appointment may be considered. You 
will join a vibrant and unique department with a strong international 
reputation for research in Applied Nonlinear Mathematics and Intelligent 
Systems. Recent success has included a £1.6M EPSRC grant, a Royal 
Society Wolfson award, a doctoral training centre in Complexity Sciences 
and the Bristol/Bath EngD in Systems Engineering. The Doctoral Training 
Centre in Complexity Science has just been awarded a £3.6M extension 
providing 10 EPSRC studentships each year for the next three years. The 
Department has a strong interdisciplinary culture, with strong links in 
biology and social medicine, and industrial links with BT, GCHQ and 
Airbus, amongst others.

Candidates should have an established track record in an area related to 
the Department's current research interests and a desire to engage in 
interdisciplinary research across the university and beyond. Applicants 
with a background in complex networks as applied to dynamical systems in 
engineering, communications, data mining, computer science, bio-medical 
systems or the social sciences would be particularly welcome. Candidates 
should also be willing to engage in teaching mathematics across the 
Faculty of Engineering as well as taking an active part in the 
development of our unique Engineering Mathematics degree programmes.

Informal enquiries should be made to Prof. Jonathan Lawry (email: 
j.lawry at bris.ac.uk) as Head of Department, Prof. John Hogan (email: 
S.J.Hogan at bris.ac.uk), Head of the Applied Nonlinear Mathematics Group 
(https://wikis.bris.ac.uk/display/ANMwiki/Home) or Prof. Nello 
Cristianini (email: nello.cristianini at gmail.com), Head of the 
Intelligent Systems group 
(http://intelligentsystems.bristol.ac.uk/home/index.html). Interviews 
are anticipated to be held in March 2011.
