Lectureships in Pure Mathematics (including Logic and Applications to
Computer Science)

The School of Mathematics at the University of Leeds is noted for the
depth and breadth of its research across Statistics and Pure and Applied
Mathematics, and for the impact of its research: it was ranked in the top
10 out of 53 departments of mathematics in the UK in the 2014 Research
Excellence Framework (REF). The School is an internationally leading
centre for research in areas of Pure Mathematics including logic, algebra,
analysis and geometry. We have a successful ongoing strategy of supporting
leading research across these areas as well as embracing the development
of links between them, and with other disciplines (e.g. Theoretical
Computer Science and Physics).

The School is undergoing a major £5m refurbishment and will, in August
2015, be transformed into a state-of-the-art research and learning
facility providing a variety of new study environments, a Research Visitor
Centre, modern offices and infrastructure, with a Grade II listed
We seek to strengthen our research activity by appointing to Lectureships
a number of individuals each with an outstanding research record working
in one or more of these areas; or in a compatible area offering scope for
strategic enhancement and development.

You must have a PhD or other doctorate in a relevant discipline and a
proven track record of research and publication outputs which meet
standards of academic excellence equivalent to the REF assessment grade of
3* and 4* (internationally excellent, or world-leading, in terms of
originality, significance and rigour).
You should have experience of teaching undergraduate and/or postgraduate
students and the development of teaching materials, with a willingness and
ability to teach effectively at all levels and an enthusiastic approach to
all aspects of research-led teaching, including specialist modules and
project supervision.

The School of Mathematics supports the LMS Good Practice Scheme, and the
University of Leeds’ commitment to women in science has been recognised
with a national accolade. The University has received the Athena SWAN
Bronze Award and the Faculty of Mathematics and Physical Sciences holds
the Athena SWAN Silver Award in recognition of our success in recruiting,
retaining and developing/promoting women in Science, Engineering and
Technology (SET). We are proud of our commitment to equality and

The University offers generous terms and conditions of employment, a wide
range of benefits, services, facilities and family friendly policies. Full

Applications from women, who are currently under-presented in this area,
will be particularly welcome; however, the final recruitment decision will
be based solely on
