Teaching Fellow (Lecturer) in Engineering Mathematics


The Department of Engineering Mathematics, University of Bristol, is seeking to appoint a Teaching Fellow (Pathway 3 Lecturer) on an Open Ended (“permanent”) contract. The post will be in our Pathway 3 job family (Teaching and Citizenship). Candidates are sought with a strong track record of teaching that is consistent with the aims and ethos of the Department. Being the only department of its kind in the country, Engineering Mathematics offers a unique education to its students focussing on creative problem solving for real-world problems which combines both data and mathematical modelling.. A passion for innovation in research-led teaching is essential, developing new ways of integrating teaching and research, and linking our teaching with end users including industry. The post is 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, machine learning, 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.


We have access to world class teaching facilities that have been specifically designed for our student educational needs and the programmes that we provide. 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 (
