Regius Professor of Mathematics
University of St Andrews

The School of Mathematics and Statistics

Closing date: 15th September 2014

The School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of St Andrews is looking to appoint a Regius Professor of Mathematics. This prestigious chair was established in 1668, and the first holder was James Gregory.

We are looking for candidates with an outstanding track record of research and academic achievement in any of the key areas of mathematical sciences. The ability to lead the strategic development of mathematical sciences in St Andrews, and to represent the School prominently within the UK and internationally are essential. We expect the appointment to expand our existing research portfolio in a significant way, with the possibility of forming a new research group. Nonetheless, synergies with the current expertise -- algebra, analysis, combinatorics, solar MHD, fluid dynamics, and statistics -- will be welcome.

The University, the oldest in Scotland and third oldest in the UK, is consistently highly ranked in national league tables. It was voted Scottish University of the Year 2013/14 by the Times and Sunday Times, and the School was ranked top in the UK in the Guardian University Guide 2015.

The University is committed to equality of opportunity. The School of Mathematics & Statistics prides itself on its inclusive and family-friendly work environment, actively striving to achieve diversity and equality of opportunity for all of its staff, students and visitors.
