Vacancies

  • Selwyn College wishes to appoint a College Lecturer in Pure Mathematics & Statistics. The post is, in the first instance, for a fixed term of 5 years, starting on 1 September 2021, and is a 50-50 partnership with Jesus College where it carries with it a Fellowship. At Selwyn the post-holder would be the Henry Beker Stipendiary Bye-Fellow. The successful candidate is expected to provide small-group teaching (supervision) in Mathematics to undergraduate students at both colleges.

     

    The Lectureship is intended to provide a valuable development opportunity for a fixed term to an individual at the beginning of their academic career to allow them to build teaching skills, a publication record and other academic activity with a view to obtaining a university appointment in Cambridge or elsewhere after holding the Lectureship.

     

    The successful applicant will be expected to undertake up to ten hours a week of small-group teaching (supervision) in Mathematics, to direct studies in Parts of the Mathematical Tripos for Jesus College and Selwyn College, to play an active part in the organisation and support of the subject within both colleges, including helping with undergraduate admissions, to engage in research and publication of international quality, and to undertake other college offices or duties appropriate to an early-career appointment if asked to do so.

     

    The stipend, which can be pensionable under the Universities Superannuation Scheme, is on a scale from £30,046 to £36,914 per annum (Points 38 to 45 on the University Single Spine), reviewable 1 August 2021.

     

    Jesus College will be able to offer convenient housing (throughout the appointment) at a rent that is considerably lower than market rent for central Cambridge. For a single person, there is a possibility of living cheaply in a residential set in College. The appointee will enjoy meals allowances at both Jesus and Selwyn Colleges.

     

    Further particulars about the post and the application procedure are available from the Jesus College website: www.jesus.cam.ac.uk/college/people/vacancies.
