Lecturer in Engineering Mathematics (2 posts, Open ended contract)



The Department of Engineering Mathematics, University of Bristol, is seeking to appoint two Lecturers on Open Ended (“permanent”) contracts. The posts will be in our Pathway 1 job family (Research, Teaching and Citizenship).  Candidates are sought with a strong track record of interdisciplinary research and teaching that is consistent with the aims and ethos of the Department. Engineering Mathematics has a unique brand to offer its students, and is the only Department of its kind in the country. It prides itself on offering students a tool kit with which to solve real-world problems.  A passion for innovation in research-led teaching is essential. Interest in developing innovative ways of integrating teaching and research, and linking our teaching with end users including industry, is particularly welcomed. We especially encourage female applicants to apply for the positions. 


These posts are being offered on a full-time, open ended contract, but applicants seeking a part-time or fractional appointment are also encouraged to apply. You will be expected to take an active role in providing high quality and innovative teaching in several areas of Engineering Mathematics across the Department at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Areas of the curriculum consist broadly of mathematics, engineering and computing, with particular specialisms in data science, artificial intelligence, nonlinear dynamics, robotics, collective dynamics, and mathematical and computational biology.  The Department of Engineering Mathematics has an excellent teaching environment and has been ranked Number 1 in the UK for General Engineering in both the 2020 and 2021 Guardian University League Tables. 


These positions offer an opportunity to join a globally recognized, highly collaborative group of researchers. This is a particularly exciting time to join us as we have just moved to our new home (the Ada Lovelace Building) in Oct 2020 which will provide us with state of the art teaching and research facilities.  We are located in Bristol which is consistently recognized as one of the UK’s most-livable cities.  Informal enquires are welcome and can be directed to: Prof. Tony Mulholland, Head of the Department of Engineering Mathematics (  Details of our research expertise and educational programmes can be found at
