Lecturer in Mathematics (Operational Research and Logistics)
The University has recently established a Centre for Operational Research and Logistics (CORL) (http://www.port.ac.uk/centre-for-operational-research-and-logistics/) and an appointment to a permanent lecturer post, based in the Department of Mathematics, is being made as part of the ongoing strategic investment in this subject area.
- Employment type: Permanent
- Employment basis: Full time
- Salary: £32,590 - £35,597 per annum
- Position number: 10011605
- Date published: 23 April 2014
- Closing date: 22 May 2014
- Interview date: 4 July 2014
Applications are sought from candidates ideally working in one of the key themes of CORL: Multiple criteria decision analysis; exact methods, heuristics, and meta-heuristics; optimisation modelling; and soft OR and integrated methodologies. Application of Operational Research methods to one or more of the CORL focus fields of logistics, transportation and supply chain management; healthcare; marine and maritime; and renewable energy and sustainability would also be an advantage. However, candidates from any area of Operational Research are welcome to apply. CORL members have an established reputation for their research in Multiple Objective Optimisation, Multiple-Criteria Decision Making, Meta-Heuristics, Logistics, and Supply Chain Management. CORL staff based in the Department of Mathematics have several research students, visiting researchers and are responsible for the teaching of OR and Logistics in undergraduate and postgraduate courses. We seek someone who is dedicated to lecturing and who will bring with them a strong research background or the potential to develop into an internationally recognised researcher to enhance the strengths of the centre.
The Department of Mathematics engages in an extensive schools outreach programme and experience of public engagement and school liaison activities will be an advantage. The Department also runs an innovative campus-wide student support facility – the Maths Café – which all academic staff are expected to contribute to.
