The mathematics department of the University of Liverpool is looking to fill a part-time 2-year teaching and research post. Details are below.
The Math Department of the University of Liverpool is advertising a part-time Teaching & Scolarship post limited to 2 years, to begin in September 2016.
You are encouraged to circulate it to suitable candidates. If you intend to do so, please highlight the following points.
- The post is part-time 50%, so the gross salary is actually £16,300-£18,884 per year.
- Due to border agency legislation and to the requirements of the role, we are only able to appoint citizens from the UK or from the EU.
- This is a teaching post. The main duty is teaching 1 module every semester for 2 years (and possibly one tutorial group). The main criterion for the appointment is evidence of teaching excellence.
- The modules are MATH241 – Metric Spaces and Calculus (Semester 1) and MATH340 – Riemann Surfaces (Semester 2). The former is basic material in real analysis that every mathematician is familiar with, and the expected class size is 100-150 students.The latter is a more specialized module, and the main task is to gently introduce our Year 3 cohort of students to material that could potentially be challenging. The expected class size is 30-40 students. Familiarity with standard undergraduate material on Riemann Surfaces is desirable.
