Lecturer / Senior Lecturer / Reader in Pure or Applied Mathematics
We are currently seeking to make an appointment in Algebra, Analysis, Geometry & Topology, or Mathematical Biology.
More details and information on how to apply can be found Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader. The closing date for applications is the 31 May 2013.
We are currently seeking to appoint a research assistant / associate (Grade 6 / 7, £26,004 - £29,249 / £31,948 - £35,938 per annum) to carry out full-time research on the project “Two-layer thermo-compositional dynamo models of the geomagnetic field” funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
The research will involve a combination of simplified mathematical models and high-resolution numerical simulations to study magnetic field generation and spontaneous stratification due to double-diffusive convection in the Earth's fluid core. The research will require a solid foundation in applied mathematics, in particular fluid mechanics and magnetohydrodynamics, an interest in geophysics and experience in numerical simulation including use of parallel architectures.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to lead the development of the next generation of geodynamo models, to contribute to ongoing scientific debates in geomagnetism, and to enhance her/his research experience and publication record.
This position has funding for 3 years, up to 31 January 2016, in the first instance.
The research project will be directed by Dr Radostin Simitev (firstname.lastname@example.org) from whom further information can be obtained.
