We are deeply proud of our academic community. Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a diverse and dynamic learning environment, defined by a shared sense of respect for all its people. Our mission is to be bold, to do the right things and to change lives, and our academics are key to realising those goals. Their work continues to reinforce our credentials as an award-winning university, and a research centre of excellence.

Our continued success — underpinned by the number of prestigious national awards we’ve won — has hinged on two commitments: forging excellent partnerships around the world and harnessing the talents of all our people. We secured a ‘Gold’ rating in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework; received the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for our pioneering research; and in 2018, we were the first UK university to sign the Social Mobility Pledge, further demonstrating our commitment to ensuring ‘success for all’. NTU is a university at the peak of its powers, but we know we can still go even further. That’s why we’re now looking for new, passionate, ambitious people to join our community.

The Department of Physics and Mathematics invites applications for a Lecturer / Senior Lecturer position in Statistics, commencing September 2021 at the latest.

We seek an exceptional individual with a PhD in Statistics, Mathematics or closely related area and an emerging record of national or international research excellence that complements the activities of the Mathematics team. Our existing multi-disciplinary research strengths concern applications in the biomedical and life sciences, engineering, computing and industry, and include: computational statistics and statistical learning theory; computational neuroscience and network science; deep learning and biomedical image analysis; industrial mathematics and numerical analysis; mathematical modelling and analysis of PDEs; and quantum information science (see https://www.ntu.ac.uk/research/subject-areas/mathematical-sciences for more details). To complement our strategic aims and teaching excellence, research in financial mathematics or financial statistics is also of interest.

The successful candidate will also have excellent communication and presentation skills, being capable of teaching foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate students across our portfolio of Mathematics courses, and of supervising student projects or dissertations up to and including those at Masters and PhD level. For this post your teaching interests should align with one or more of the broad topic areas that contribute to our existing BSc / MMath Mathematics, BSc Financial Mathematics or BSc Data Science courses. 

Research in the School of Science and Technology is extremely strong in terms of high quality outputs, funding income, and international impact. A key strength of the School is its collegial, multi-disciplinary approach with mathematicians, statisticians, scientists and engineers collaborating extensively. Our teaching aims to be exciting, innovative and relevant and is highly regarded, with Mathematics performing consistently well in the National Student Survey.
