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.
Senior Lecturer/Reader in Engineering Mathematics
Merchant Venturers' School of Engineering, University of Bristol, UK.
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
are anticipated to be held in March 2011.
