One of the great strengths of the School of Mathematics is its research in the area of Astrophysical and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. This is a unique opportunity for you to join the School of Mathematics and to become a key part of its growth in the Geophysical side of the group, strengthening its existing research collaborations with the School of Earth and Environment.
You will have research expertise in theoretical and/or computational aspects of Geophysical or Environmental Fluid Dynamics and an interest in applying your work to real world problems. You will contribute to the School’s ambition to excel in REF2020, with a sustained record of internationally excellent publications and the potential for your research having impact outside Mathematics.
You will participate strongly in the development and delivery of relevant educational material/programmes at undergraduate, Masters and PhD level, including the University’s Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics and the Leeds-York Doctoral Training Partnership in Environmental Research.
You will also be expected to submit grant applications for research support, and to work with colleagues across the University to submit larger grants. You will already have a substantial fellowship that supports your work, or be a candidate for such a fellowship.
You will have significant proven research experience within the field of Geophysical Fluid Dynamics or related areas, the ability to teach at both Undergraduate and Postgraduate level, as well as a clear and compelling vision for personal academic development.
