Lecturer in Experimental Physics

Applications are invited for the above post in the
Department of Physics and Astronomy. The successful candidate will be expected to participate in experimental research within the new research group on Nonlinear Dynamics (see the news section, this issue) which will be established in September 1996 by Professor T. Mullin.

Applicants are expected to hold a Ph.D. in experimental physics and to have postdoctoral experience in the above area of research. Preference will be given to candidates with a strong record in experimental research this field. The appointment will be initially for a probationary appointment of four years, and the salary will be at a point on the University Lecturer's scale.

5-Year Lecturership in Applied Mathematics

(to be confirmed)

Following the award of an EPSRC Advanced Fellowship to Dr R V Craster, there is a vacancy for a fixed-term lecturer in the Department of Theoretical Mechanics at the University of Nottingham.

Applications are invited from candidates qualified in a branch of physical or non-physical applied mathematics which has relevance to engineering, for example in solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, electromagnetic theory, industrial mathematics, mathematical biology, numerical analysis, nonlinear systems or applied analysis.

The Department was graded four in the 1992 Research Assessment Exercise, and the appointee will be expected to maintain and enhance this established research record. The duties of the post include the teaching of mathematics to honours degree level to students on the single honours degree course in Mathematics-with-Engineering and the joint honours course in Electronic Engineering and Mathematics, and to engineering students throughout the Faculty of Engineering.

The Lectureship is a five-year fixed-term post and the appointment will be effective from the beginning of the session 1996-97. The salary for the appointment will be within the range £15,154 to £19,848 per annum of the Lecturer A Scale.
