Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics


Applications are invited for the following positions, which will be filled from 1 October 1998 or before.

Temporary Lectureship

A two-year fixed-term position at Assistant Lecturer level, open to candidates with interests in any area of probability, mathematical statistics, mathematics of operations research, or ergodic theory. The successful applicant will be expected to contribute to the teaching and research programmes of the Laboratory. The current age-related salary scale is £16,045 to £21,016 a year. It is normal (but not obligatory) for staff to undertake supervision of undergraduates for the Colleges of the University, thereby supplementing their salaries.

UBS Research Fellowship in Financial Mathematics

A two-year post-doctoral Research Fellowship, funded by the Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS). The position is associated with a collaboration between UBS, the Statistical Laboratory, and the Department of Mathematics of the ETH, Zürich, and provides an excellent opportunity for candidates with an interest in the application of theory to the market environment. It is expected that the person appointed will have a recent Ph.D., and an outstanding record and direct research experience in financial mathematics, or expertise in an appropriate area of applicable mathematics. Remuneration will be competitive.

Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Stochastic Analysis

Funded jointly by the Isaac Newton Trust and the TMR Programme of the European Union (within the EU programme on Stochastic Analysis and its Applications). The successful applicant will work on one or more aspects of probability and stochastic analysis. Each Fellowship will last for between six months and two years, and it is anticipated that at least two years of funding will be available in all for Fellowships in Cambridge. Applicants must come from a member state of the EU or an Associated State. UK residents may not apply to Cambridge. Applicants are encouraged to consult the web page given below for details of eligibility and method of application.

Research Assistantship in Dynamics of Non-Expanding Maps

A three-year EPSRC funded post-doctoral Research Assistantship to work with Dr Colin Sparrow (DPMMS, Cambridge) and Dr Jeremy Gunawardena of the Basic Research Institute in the Mathematical Sciences (BRIMS), Hewlett-Packard Research Laboratories. The project aims to make progress in understanding the theory and applications of non-expanding maps. Applicants should have, or expect shortly to receive, a Ph.D. in a relevant area of mathematics. The successful applicant will be based in Cambridge, and will visit BRIMS on a regular basis. Appointment will be made on the age-related salary scale of £15,159 to £21,016 a year.

Each applicant should state clearly which position he or she is applying for, and should send a curriculum vitae, including nationality and date of birth, together with a list of publications, to the Director, Statistical Laboratory, 16 Mill Lane, Cambridge, CB2 1SB. The closing date for applications is 31 January 1998. Applicants should arrange for three academic referees to send letters of recommendation directly to the Director, to arrive by 7 February 1998. Further information about the Laboratory and these vacancies may be found on the web at http://www.statslab.cam.ac.uk/.

The University follows an equal opportunities policy.
