## Opportunities in Mathematics, Statistics and Probability at Sussex University

It seems a good time for a quick post to point out that we have some jobs available in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Sussex. These posts have been made available following the University’s annual strategic planning process, in which it is one of my main responsibilities as Head of the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences to put forward plans for future developments. The new positions are intended both to expand and diversify our research base in Mathematics and Statistics, but also to provide additional teaching effort given our expanding student numbers.

When I arrived at Sussex three years ago the number of academic staff in the Department of Mathematics was just 15. We made a number of appointments in 2013 and these further posts will take it up to 25, which is still quite small by UK standards. Our strategic plan is to get staff numbers in Mathematics up to around 30 by 2018. In fact, applications by potential undergraduates to do Mathematics courses at Sussex are up by a whoppingÂ 80% this year, and if this turns into a large increase in intake then we will be looking to make further appointments very soon.

Anyway, here are three jobs with links to adverts:

- Lecturer in Statistics and Probability
- Senior Lecturer or Reader in Statistics and Probability.
- Lecturer in Mathematics.

Please follow the links for more detailed descriptions of each job and further instructions on how to apply. The closing dates for all three jobs are 17th May 2016; we plan to interview selected candidates in June or July.

Feel free pass this on to likely applicants!
