College Lecturer in Pure Mathematics (St John's College) - closing Wednesday 17 April 2024

St John’s College, is advertising a one-year College Lecturer in Pure Mathematics:

This position is most likely to appeal to early career researchers, including final year PhD students expecting to submit their thesis before September 2024.

As detailed in the advert, the main role of this post will be to provide small group tutorials to first and second year students, across a range of pure mathematics courses. We expect this, and related activities will take up about 40-60% of the lecturers working time during the 24 weeks of the Oxford terms, with most of the rest of the time available for research.  There is a travel allowance to support research travel.  The lecturer will be encouraged to join the appropriate research group of the Mathematical Institute and take full advantage of the lively research environment, as well as engage in the College mathematical community.
