We invite applications from talented postdoctoral researchers for Hooke Research Fellowships.

Candidates for these Fellowships should have research interests compatible with those of the existing faculty in applied mathematics, including mathematical biology, mathematical and computational finance and numerical analysis. The successful applicants will be talented researchers, who have 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, Fellows 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.
