The University of Birmingham is currently advertising a faculty position in Discrete Mathematics.
This position is within the Birmingham fellowship scheme. Birmingham fellowships are prestigious permanent faculty positions, with a probationary period of three years. The positions are made especially attractive by the fact that the first 5 years come with (additional) protected time for high-quality research: there will be a significantly reduced teaching load for the first five years with almost no teaching in the first year, gradually going up to the full load. At the end of the five years the fellowship is transferred to a position at the appropriate level (Senior Lecturer/Reader), which would be equivalent to an Associate Professorship within the US system.
Discrete Mathematics is one of the priority areas for the current call.
Applicants would be expected to have at least a year’s postdoc or so, but they could also be more senior.
The deadline for applications is 23 November 2013. The starting date is flexible – sometime in 2014.
