We are seeking a talented postdoctoral researcher to take up a Titchmarsh Research Fellowship in Mathematical Physics. This prestigious Fellowship at the University of Oxford is full-time, and fixed-term for up to 36 months. They provide an ideal opportunity for candidates to pursue an independent research programme in mathematical physics, and to join a large existing cohort of leading researchers on Fellowship programmes at the Mathematical Institute -

The Department is also advertising a similar fellowship scheme for Hooke and Titchamrsh Research Fellows, for researchers across the spectrum of pure and applied mathematics. There will be up to six appointments made across the Hooke and Titchmarsh Fellowships in this recruitment, including one appointment made from this vacancy. Applications for job shares or for part-time working to accommodate family circumstances will be considered.

Candidates for this Fellowship should have research interests compatible with those of our current faculty in the Mathematical Physics research group, and should indicate within their supporting letter one or more research group members they could envision working alongside as a potential mentor or future collaborator. The successful applicant will be a talented researcher, who has 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, the Fellow will be required to contribute up to three hours of teaching per week for the 24 weeks of each academic year to support the department, averaged over the period of the Fellowship to allow for extended visits elsewhere.

Candidates will have, or be close to completing, a PhD in mathematics or physics. They must show evidence of independence and the ability to undertake research of the highest academic standard, hold an outstanding record of papers published in major international journals (commensurate with career stage), and have a realisable and relevant research plan, relevant to the existing activities and/or expertise of the Mathematical Physics research group, which would enhance the research profile of the Mathematical Institute. Additional information about the posts, and a full list of selection criteria, are available in the job description.

We proudly hold a departmental Athena SWAN Silver Award and an institutional Race Equality Charter Bronze Award, which guide our progress towards advancing racial and gender equality. As part of our strategic aim to improve staff equality and diversity, we would particularly welcome applications from women and from BAME candidates, who are currently under-represented in positions of this type within the department.
