Salary: £37,756 - £45,053

(subject to qualifications and experience)

Applications are invited for a Lectureship in Data Assimilation, based in the Department of Mathematics. The Department’s research in this area currently focuses on applications to meteorology and climate change. It is led by Professor Ian Roulstone, who is the joint head of the Data Assimilation theme of the NERC National Centre for Earth Observation.

We are looking for an outstanding mathematician or physicist with significant experience in data assimilation or Earth system modelling, to strengthen and expand this research area. In particular, there are opportunities to collaborate with the Surrey Space Centre, which is involved in global satellite sensing, with Surrey’s Centre for Environmental Strategy, and with external partners such as the Met Office and the National Physical Laboratory.

The successful candidate will join a friendly, vibrant and highly-rated department with a broad range of research interests, many of which span the interface between pure and applied mathematics. These include theoretical aspects of mathematics, the development of methods for solving physical problems, modelling of physical and biological systems, and a variety of interdisciplinary collaborations. Specific research areas include dynamical systems, ergodic theory, nonlinearPDEs, fluid dynamics, geometry and mechanics, mathematical physics, mathematical meteorology, biological and social systems modelling, mathematical statistics and numerics.In the last UK Research Assessment Exercise,the Department’s applied mathematics submission was rated 7th (out of 42)for world-leading research outputs. Further information about the Departmentcan be found at www.maths.surrey.ac.uk.

Informal academic enquiries are welcome and may be made to Prof Ian Roulstone: I.Roulstone@surrey.ac.ukor +44 (0)1483 689638, or to the Head of Department, Prof Peter Hydon: P.Hydon@surrey.ac.uk  or +44 (0)1483 682628.
