Beyer Chair in Applied Mathematics

The School of Mathematics is seeking to appoint an outstanding mathematical scientist to the Beyer Chair in Applied Mathematics.

The Beyer Chair is a senior professorial position in Applied Mathematics, established in 1881 by an endowment from the industrialist Charles Frederick Beyer.

Applicants will have a distinguished track record of research in one or more areas of Applied Mathematics, defined in its broadest sense, and will play a leading role in the life of the School, by providing inspiring leadership in research, and also through appropriate teaching and service activities.

The closing date is March 22, 2019. For advert and more details see here.
