The University of Bristol is seeking applications for:
• Professor/Reader in Probability Theory
This position forms part of the University's strategic expansion in research areas that complement existing strengths in Pure Mathematics and Statistics at Bristol. The successful candidates will be expected to build up and lead a research group of the highest international level.
The School of Mathematics is one of the leading centres for research and teaching in mathematics in the UK. There are groups working in Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics and Statistics. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), Applied Mathematics ranked third, Pure Mathematics ranked joint fifth and Statistics ranked joint fourth in terms of grade-point average. Furthermore, the School has close links with the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, which is based in Bristol and runs a co-ordinated series of research programmes, conferences and workshops. (See http://www.maths.bris.ac.uk/research/heilbronn_institute).
Women are currently under-represented in the School of Mathematics, therefore we particularly welcome applications from women for these posts. The University has numerous family friendly policies which can be found on the Positive Working Environment website http://www.bris.ac.uk/pwe
In order to receive full attention, applications should be received by 9.00am on Friday 1st October 2010.
