Academic Vacancies

College Lectureship and Fellowship in Pure Mathematics


Applications are invited from suitably qualified applicants for a College Lectureship in Pure Mathematics, associated with a Fellowship of Christ’s College.


The Lectureship is intended to provide a valuable development opportunity for a fixed term to an individual at the beginning of his or her academic career to allow him or her to build teaching skills, a publication record and other academic activity with a view to obtaining a University appointment in Cambridge or elsewhere. It will be tenable from 1 September 2019 to 31 August 2023 or for a similar period with dates to be agreed.


The successful candidate will be expected to reside in Cambridge and will be elected to a Fellowship of the College. He or she will be expected to undertake at least eight hours of small-group teaching per week for the College during Full Term (equivalent to 160 hours per academic year), to engage in research and publication, to assist or act as Director of Studies in Mathematics from time to time, and to undertake other College offices or duties appropriate to an early-career appointment if asked to do so. Candidates should normally be able to teach a range of subjects from the pure mathematical material covered in the first two years of the Mathematical Tripos at the University of Cambridge. The Fellow may, at his or her discretion, give additional College teaching (beyond 160 hours per annum) which would be remunerated at the normal hourly rates for College supervision.


The stipend will be equivalent to point 41 of the Cambridge University scale (presently £32,236). The Fellow will be a member of the College’s Governing Body and will be expected to sit on a number of College committees. The privileges of a Fellowship include seven free meals per week, the possibility of limited financial support for research expenses, a study room for teaching and other academic purposes, and possibly single-occupancy residential accommodation in College. The stipend is subject to a reduction if the Fellow chooses to reside in College.


Letters of application (there are no forms) should be sent to the Master’s Assistant, Christ’s College, Cambridge CB2 3BU (email masters-assistant@‌christs.‌cam.‌ to arrive no later than noon on Monday 11th February 2019, including a curriculum vitae with details of qualifications, publications and experience; an indication of whether a work visa would be required in order to take up the post; and the names and addresses of two persons who have agreed to act as academic referees. Candidates must arrange for their referees to write directly to the Master’s Assistant so that references are received by the closing date of Monday 11th February 2019. Short-listed candidates may be invited for interviews expected to be held on Tuesday 26th February 2019.
