The School of Mathematical Sciences is seeking an outstanding researcher with a doctoral qualification who can apply/develop mathematics to practically relevant problems arising in quantitative finance. Professional experience in a relevant financial institution would be highly regarded as we are also interested in researchers who are able to promote their research to the professional sector. The School of Mathematical Sciences is multidisciplinary with very active groups in research areas that include mathematical finance, PDEs, stochastic modelling, scientific computing, optimisation and machine learning.
In particular, the school is currently expanding its reach in the area of Financial Mathematics by:
- The creation of a Master of Financial Mathematics
- Developing partnerships with financial institutions
- Developing its academic research activity, particularly in the areas of stochastic control, computational finance, and systematic investment strategies
If you are highly motivated and would enjoy being part of a supportive team of academic and professional staff, apply now.
This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
