Lecturer positions


We are currently advertising two positions as Lecturer (exceptionally Reader) in the Hodge institute:
Applicants should demonstrate an outstanding research record and contribute to the productive and strong collaborative research environment in the Hodge Institute. Preference may be given to candidates who strengthen connections between different areas of research within the Hodge Institute or more broadly between the Hodge Institute and other parts of the School. Applicants will be expected to give high quality undergraduate and postgraduate level lectures, and to contribute to the administration of the School. There will be a requirement to be involved in enhancing eLearning and online teaching initiatives.
Official job ad.
The deadline is November 2.
Please don't hesitate to contact anyone among us with informal inquiries, or to Iain Gordon (hos@maths.ed.ac.uk) in his role as Head of School.

(Fine print: Unlike in previous years, you only need to give us contact details for references, whom we will contact directly; we ask for at least four references, one of them concerning teaching. Please upload your CV, research statement and teaching statement under "Optional Documents" in the application form.)

Post-doctoral positions.


If you are interested in doing a postdoc at the Hodge Institute, check back here from time to time for positions we might have attached to grants, or updates about our School postdoc openings.

Seggie Brown Research Fellow


This post is currently being advertised, the deadline is November 28, 5pm:
http://www.maths.ed.ac.uk/school-of-mathematics/jobs/seggie-brown-research-fellowship
You are welcome to contact anyone among us with questions, or José Figueroa-O’Farrill (j.m.figueroa@ed.ac.uk), who is chairing the Seggie Brown committee this year.

This is a 2-year fellowship open to all areas of mathematics, and is advertised every year in the fall. See Seggie Brown Bequest for more information about Seggie Brown.

General information

In general, the following job opportunities are available, with the later ones being more senior or prestigious. See also the School Webpage on post-doctoral fellowship opportunities (which includes updated information on upcoming deadlines).

  1. EPSRC intradisciplinary postdoctoral fellowships. Find out more about the application process. (Martin Kalck is funded through this, and before him Guillaume Pouchin was.)
  2. Research Fellowships from the Royal Commission of 1851 for 3 years.
  3. Two-year Newton fellowship for people currently based overseas.
  4. Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowships.
  5. Our own Seggie Brown Fellowships. (Currently Hendrik Suess is a Seggie Brown Fellow.)
  6. EPSRC Career Fellowships for 5 years. (Michael Wemyss was awarded one of these.)
  7. Royal Society University Research Fellowships for 5 years (extendable to 8 years), open to EU/EEA citizens and those who have worked at EU/EEA universities.
  8. ERC Researcher Grants. (Both Agata Smoktunowicz and Arend Bayer have won such a grant.)

(5) is usually advertised in November. Ideally contact us in late August for (7). Applicants for (1) and (6) can apply at any time, but there are specified times when panels meet to decide on funding: contacting us in either November/December or May/June makes most sense.
