Professor / Lecturer in Disordered Systems / Statistics

Applications are invited for two posts, one in Disordered Systems and one in Statistics, as part of the King’s Inspired Science (KIS) initiative, in the Department of Mathematics at King’s College London. This is part of a continued strategic expansion of Mathematics at King’s, with 13 new posts being advertised across the mathematical sciences, as well as being part of the KIS initiative, which aims at substantial growth in core science with applications to life sciences. We expect to fill one post at the Lecturer level and the other at the Professor level.

Candidates for the Disordered Systems post are expected to have a PhD in Mathematics, Theoretical Physics or related areas, and research expertise in some area of Complex and Disordered Systems (understood in a broad sense), with applications to Life Sciences (broadly defined). For example, but not exclusively, research interests could be in statistical and quantum mechanics of systems with disorder, Anderson or/and many-body localization, theory of random matrices, nonequilibrium dynamics, spin glasses and other glassy materials, neural networks, optimization and machine learning.

Candidates for the Statistics post are expected to have research expertise in some area of Statistical Methodology, with applications to Life Sciences (broadly defined), to bolster the department’s research strength in this area. Candidates should have the potential to carry out research that has high levels of originality, innovation and depth that is likely to lead to significant impact on their field and beyond over the long term.

The successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the research activity of the Department, take part in teaching and examining for the Department’s undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes, make a contribution to the academic organisation of the Department, and have demonstrable ability to attract research funding.
The posts are available from March 2023 and are located at the Strand Campus of King’s College London.

These posts will be offered on a permanent contract.
These are full-time posts – 100% full time equivalent
