Lecturer in Actuarial Science

Closing date : 17/04/2015
Reference : E&PS-06088
Faculty / Organisational unit : Engineering & Physical Sciences
School / Directorate : School of Mathematics
Division : -
Employment type : Permanent
Location : Oxford Road, Manchester
Salary : £38,511 to £47,328 per annum
Hours per week : Full time

You will be a researcher in any area of Actuarial Science, Probability, Financial and/or Statistical Mathematics who will help to enhance and extend the School's expertise and capacity in the Probabilistic/Statistical aspects of Actuarial Science, both through teaching (at undergraduate and postgraduate level) and research (including the supervision of MSc and PhD students). An affinity with the Probabilistic/Statistical aspects of Actuarial Science is desirable, but research may be conducted within the wider field of Probability and/or Statistics. Your role forms a part of a number of strategic appointments to strengthen Actuarial Science in the School of Mathematics.

At present the School has three permanent members of staff in Actuarial Science who are part of the Probability and Statistics Group. Your main duties will lie in teaching and research. Your role will include teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students by means of lectures, seminars, tutorials and examples classes, continually developing teaching material and learning experiences for students and acting as academic advisor to undergraduate students in accordance with the School’s current practice. You are expected to undertake high-quality research in relevant areas and publish the results in world-leading journals, books or similar organs and make applications for research grants and funding.

You will have a PhD or equivalent relevant experience and are expected to be a recognised researcher in a relevant area or, if in an earlier career stage, to show exceptional promise and ability; have a record of original high-impact research, as evidenced by publications in internationally-leading journals or, if at an earlier career stage, show very strong potential to do so; be willing and able to supervise postgraduate research students.

The School of Mathematics is committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for promoting women’s careers in STEMM subjects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) in higher education. The School received a Bronze Award in 2013 for their commitment to the representation of women in the workplace and we particularly welcome applications from women for this post. Appointment will always be made on merit. For further information, please visit
