Newcastle University, UK
Salary: £33,242 - £37,394
Closing Date: 11 June 2015
Interviews: 15 July 2015

Applications are invited for a Lectureship in Applied Mathematics/Quantum Theory within the School of Mathematics & Statistics from September 2015, or such other date as may be agreed . You should be an enthusiastic, strong researcher with outstanding teaching potential and excellent communication skills.

Newcastle University has a strong tradition of research in a wide range of areas of theoretical physics, mathematical physics, and astrophysics, some in collaboration with experimentalists and observers, with key research activities centred around radio astronomy, astrophysical fluid dynamics and magneto-hydrodynamics , quantum field theory, cosmology and quantum gravity, vortex dynamics, super-fluidity and Bose-Einstein condensation in quantum fluids and gases, and related aspects of quantum optics. Other sections in the School conduct research and teaching in pure mathematics and statistics, and our School provides a significant part of the training of Physics undergraduates.

You will be expected to carry out and publish high-quality research in quantum theory (e.g. quantum optics, many-body quantum systems, open quantum systems, quantum simulation and metrology, quantum fluids and gases, quantum information theory and quantum computation) and play a role in the teaching and administrative activities within the School.

Informal enquiries may be made to the Head of School, Professor Robin Henderson (Robin [dot] Henderson [at] ncl [dot] ac [dot] uk , (0)191 208 7235), or to Professor Jan Moss (lan [dot] Moss [at] ncl [dot] ac [dot] uk, (0)191 208 7293). More information about the School can be found at http://www.ncl.ac.uk/maths

The School is committed to the Athena SWAN Charter for women in science. Newcastle University values diversity and is committed to recruiting and supporting staff and students from all sectors of society. The University holds a bronze Athena SWAN award in recognition of our good employment practices for women working in science, and the HR Excellence in Research award.

Note also that the School hosts part of the Joint Quantum Centre Durham-Newcastle (www.jqc.org.uk), an inter-University interdisciplinary research Centre with a mission to undertake fundamental research in all aspects of quantum science and technology. For JQC-research-related queries potential applicants may also contact Prof. Nick Proukakis (JQC Associate Director, nikolaos [dot] proukakis [at] ncl [dot] ac [dot] uk), or Prof. Carlo Barenghi (JQC Co-Director, carlo [dot] barenghi [at] ncl [dot] ac [dot] uk).
