We are seeking talented postdoctoral researchers to take up exciting Fellowship opportunities at the Mathematical Institute.

The prestigious Titchmarsh Research Fellowships provide an ideal opportunity for candidates to pursue an independent research programme in pure mathematics, and to join a large existing cohort of leading researchers on Fellowship programmes at the Mathematical Institute

The prestigious Glasstone Research Fellowship in Science is supported by the Glasstone Bequest, which was set up to encourage scientists at an early stage of their career to follow their research interests at Oxford: One Glasstone Research Fellowship is available in mathematics for start in 2024.

The Department is also advertising a similar fellowship scheme for Hooke Research Fellows in applied mathematics: 

One Glasstone Fellowship is available and up to four appointments will be made across the Hooke and Titchmarsh Fellowships in this recruitment.   All applications for the Hooke and Titchmarsh Research Fellowships will automatically be considered for the Glasstone Fellowship. The Fellowships are full-time, and fixed-term for up to 36 months; applications for job shares or for part-time working to accommodate family circumstances will be considered.

Candidates should make one application which will automatically be considered for both the Titchmarsh and Glasstone Fellowships. You will have research interests compatible with those of our current faculty in the algebra, combinatorics, geometry, history of mathematics, logic, number theory, functional analysis, stochastic analysis or topology groups, or the Oxford Centre for Nonlinear PDE (OxPDE); and you must clearly state at the start of your supporting letter which one of these research groups you feel is closest to your work.  The successful applicants will be talented researchers, who have already produced excellent research during their PhD and in any postdoctoral positions. Securing a Fellowship will offer you the freedom to conduct your own research programme.

To aid the development of their academic profile, Fellows will be required to contribute three  or six 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. (The exact nature of this teaching will be in accordance with departmental need as determined by the Head of Department, noting that the department may require you to teach in a college to provide cover for a member of faculty).

Candidates will have, or be close to completing, a PhD in pure mathematics or a related discipline. 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 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 descriptions.

Please direct informal enquiries to @email, quoting vacancy reference 168996.

Only applications received before 12.00 noon UK time on Friday 24 November 2023 can be considered. To apply, please click here.
