From time to time vacancies arise within the department. Posts will be advertised on this page as and when they arise.

Lecturer in Statistical Science (x2)

The successful candidates will be expected to conduct original research and contribute collegially to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in Statistical Science. Research may be in any branch(es) of statistics or applied probability, although applicants with expertise in statistical data science or in finance / econometrics will be especially welcome.

Candidates should hold a PhD (or equivalent qualification) in statistics or a closely related field.  It is essential that the successful candidates have a proven record of ability to carry out high quality research in a branch of probability or statistics, including publications in highly regarded peer-reviewed journals; the ability to construct and deliver lecture courses on topics relevant to the needs of the department and excellent communication skills.

The posts are open ended and are available immediately.

Closing date: 26 Jan 2020

IMSS Senior Research Fellow in Mathematical and Statistical Science (x4)

UCL is investing strategically in Mathematics and Statistical Science, with the vision of creating a world-leading Institute of Mathematical and Statistical Science (IMSS). As part of this exciting expansion, we invite applications from outstanding postdoctoral researchers for Senior Research Fellows across the range of disciplines of the two departments. These are 3-year funded research posts at UCL for talented early-career mathematicians and statisticians to pursue an independent research programme. There are four posts available:   

  • IMSS Senior Research Fellow in Pure Mathematics
  • IMSS Senior Research Fellow in Applied Mathematics (including Financial Mathematics)
  • Two IMSS Senior Research Fellows in any area of Statistics and Applied Probability  

Each fellow will receive a fund of £9000 (£3000 per year for 3 years) to support their research. Appointees will be expected to undertake high standard research in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics (including data science) or applied probability, leading to conference presentations and publication in leading journals. In addition, they will contribute to the research environment of the departments through interaction with staff and students and by participating in, and co-organising, IMSS events. A limited amount of teaching will be expected.

The successful candidates must have a PhD in mathematics, statistics or related discipline and a track record of international research excellence and publishing in the relevant discipline. A written independent research plan will form part of the application and it will be advantageous if the proposed research is related to one of the departments’ research groups.

The posts are available from 01 March 2020 and successful applicants must be available to start no later than 01 October 2020. Flexible and part-time working arrangements are available.

Closing date: 01 Dec 2019
