Heilbronn Fellowships in Mathematics (3 positions)

The School of Mathematics at the University of Manchester has three Helibronn Fellowships in Mathematics available, in association with the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research. Experience in Algebra or Numerical Linear Algebra, interpreted broadly, is preferred. The Fellowships last for three years, starting in October 2019 or at a mutually agreed alternative date. The salary is £37,345 to £42,036 per annum (according to relevant experience) plus a supplement of £3500 per annum, and at least £2,500 per annum is available for research expenses.

The Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research (HIMR) is a major national centre which works in collaboration with universities and Government Communication Headquarters (GCHQ) to support mathematics research. It employs more than 30 Heilbronn Fellows, who divide their time between academic research and work for GCHQ. The Institute also runs a highly successful programme of events to promote and further the cause and understanding of advanced mathematical research. These include conferences, focused research groups and workshops. It is named after Professor Hans Heilbronn FRS, who was a major contributor to UK mathematics.

The Heilbronn Fellowship holders will divide their time equally between their own academic research (in the School of Mathematics at the University) and the research programme of the Heilbronn Institute. The Institute’s work offers opportunities to engage in collaborative work as well as individual projects.

The closing date is November 11, 2018. More information about the Heilbronn Fellowship in Mathematics is available in the advert and further particulars here, which also describe security requirements attached to these posts.

Steven Elsworth wins second SIAM Student Travel Award

Steven Elsworth has been awarded a SIAM Student Travel Award to attend the 2019 SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE19) in Spokane, Washington. These travel awards support strong PhD students to present their work at SIAM conferences with $650 for domestic travel and $800 for intercontinental travel, as well as free registration. The application process is competitive, with a strong record of scholarship being one of the criteria.

Steven is a third-year PhD student on a CASE Studentship with Sabisu, a long-standing industry partner of our School. In Spokane, Steven will give a minisymposium talk about the RKToolbox, which he develops with his supervisor Dr Stefan Güttel. The RKToolbox is written in MATLAB and collects scientific computing tools based on rational Krylov methods. This is already Steven’s second SIAM Student Travel Award: in May 2018 he presented work at the SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra in Hong Kong.
