Titchmarsh Research Fellowship

Grade 7: salary £32,236 – £39,609 p.a.

We invite applications from talented postdoctoral researchers for a Titchmarsh Research Fellowship. This prestigious Fellowship at the University of Oxford are fixed term for 24 months and provide an ideal opportunity for candidates to pursue an independent research programme. Applications for a job share or for part-time working to accommodate family circumstances will be considered.

Candidates for this Fellowship should have research interests compatible with those of the existing faculty in pure mathematics, including algebra, combinatorics, geometry, logic, mathematical physics, number theory, stochastic analysis or topology groups, or the Oxford Centre for Nonlinear PDE. The successful candidate will be a talented researcher, who has already produced excellent research during their PhD and in any postdoctoral positions. They will be free to conduct their own research programme.

To aid the development of their academic profile, the Fellow 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.

The successful candidates will have, or be close to completing a PhD in mathematics or a related discipline. They must show evidence of independence and the ability to undertake research of the highest academic standard, hold an outstanding record of papers published in major international journals (commensurate with career stage), and have a realisable and relevant research plan which would enhance the Mathematical Institute’s research profile.
