OVERALL PURPOSE OF THE JOB:
Research and teaching in Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Limerick is seeking to appoint a Lecturer (tenured) or a Lecturer below the bar (tenure-track) in mathematics. The department has a thriving research programme in applied mathematics and statistics and it is responsible for teaching mathematics and statistics at all levels across the University.
The Mathematics Applications Consortium for Science and Industry (MACSI) is the department’s research centre that applies mathematics and statistics to diverse real-world problems. MACSI also works collaboratively within UL and with academic and industry partners, having principal investigators in national Science Foundation Ireland Research Centres (e.g., the Insight Centre for Data Analytics, the Confirm Centre for Smart Manufacturing, the Synthesis and Solid-State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC)) and with links to UL’s Health Research Institute and Bernal Institute. The department also hosts (in collaboration with University College Dublin and Maynooth University) the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research Training in Foundations of Data Science, which is training over 120 PhD students in the foundational disciplines of applied mathematics, statistics and machine learning.
Applicants are invited from any area of mathematics including, but not limited to mathematical modelling, financial mathematics, industrial mathematics, fluid mechanics, network science, differential equations, numerical analysis, inverse problems and optimisation. The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree (level 10 NFQ) in a relevant discipline, a track record of excellent research and should demonstrate a commitment to teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Experience of working in collaborative and interdisciplinary projects is also desirable, as is an awareness of how their work can impact more broadly on industry and society, and an ability to demonstrate this.
In December 2015 the department was successful in obtaining an Athena SWAN Bronze award, one of the first departmental awards given in the country, which demonstrates its commitment to addressing gender equality. This award was recently renewed for a second term and we are currently working towards a silver award.
The successful candidate will be required to contribute to the delivery and organisation of teaching their subject within the Department of Mathematics & Statistics, both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to develop a research programme which complements existing research themes within the Department.
