The University of Exeter has been named University of the Year in The Sunday Times University Guide 2013 and has now risen to 7th place in The Sunday Times league table. In the 2012 National Student Survey we are ranked 6th out of all "full service" universities and we are now a member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive institutions. Recent capital projects to the value of GBP 350 million pounds across the University ensure a truly world-class research and teaching environment and an inspirational location to work and live.

The College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the University of Exeter is continuing with a strategy of sustained investment in both academic staff and infrastructure to provide a catalyst for significant growth in both research activity and student experience. In recognition of their pivotal importance to both research and the student experience, the College is looking to appoint exceptional researchers and inspirational teachers to join its dynamic faculty.

As part of the College's strategy, we are expanding Mathematics on the Cornwall campus. This expansion will build up on existing links between mathematics and ecology, renewable energy and the Environment and Sustainability Institute and will support the development of a new and innovative BSc programme Mathematics and the Environment to be launched in 2013.

Applicants will be leaders in their fields who combine world-class research with vision and innovation. This appointment will develop links to flourishing research in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation, the Environment and Sustainability Institute and/or the European Centre for Environment and Human Health. Applicants with interests in Statistical Ecology or Bioinformatics are particularly welcomed. Further appointments are planned so as to achieve critical mass in this area.

Applicants are encouraged to contact the Dean of the College, Prof Ken Evans (tel: 01392 723645, email: ) to discuss the posts further. Informal enquiries can be made to Prof Stuart Townley, Professor of Applied Mathematics (tel: 01326 255742, email: ). You may also wish to consult our web site at for further details of the College.

The University of Exeter is working towards a Silver Athena SWAN award as a sign of its intention to provide equality of opportunity to all staff thereby working towards addressing the issue of underrepresentation of women in Academia in the STEM subjects: science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The University of Exeter is an equal opportunity employer which is 'Positive about Disabled People'. Whilst all applicants will be judged on merit alone, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented in the workforce.
