Department of Mathematics Imperial College London
Job Description: 

Department of Mathematics Imperial College London
Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics
South Kensington Campus

Salary range:

Lecturer: £44,150 - £49,200
Senior Lecturer: minimum starting salary from £54,250

Applications are invited for a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (equivalent to an Assistant Professorship) in Theoretical and Computational Fluid Dynamics with effect from October 2013 or sooner.

Candidates will be expected to conduct research in theoretical fluid dynamics and have strong interests in scientific computing and to contribute significantly to the department’s interdisciplinary research activities.

The Fluid Dynamics group at Imperial College London (ICL) is one of the largest groups of its kind in a mathematics department. It has a long history of excellence and boasts strengths in most aspects of theoretical and computational fluid dynamics ranging from low Reynolds number hydrodynamics and biofluiddynamics to aerodynamics and geophysics. The group has strong links with engineering at ICL and its members are involved in numerous ongoing interdisciplinary research projects.

Candidates must have a PhD (or equivalent) in Mathematical Sciences or a closely related field and have a growing research record of international standing in theoretical and computational fluid dynamics. Candidates must demonstrate outstanding research potential, ideally in areas which enhance and extend those of the group, though those with proven leadership ability in other areas will also be considered. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential, as well as the ability to direct the work of a small research team and apply for funding. Experience of teaching applied mathematics (or closely related) courses at undergraduate and/or postgraduate level is essential.

For appointment to the position of Senior Lecturer, in addition to the above, candidates must have an exceptionally strong research record in Theoretical Fluid Mechanics or closely related subject. Experience in postgraduate training and undergraduate teaching in subjects within (or close to) the field of Mathematics is also essential. In addition, candidates must have a demonstratable track record of successful postgraduate student supervision.
