A unique opportunity has arisen for a gifted Applied Mathematician / Statistician to use their considerable numerate skills on scientific applications with practical outcomes. Typically, maths roles are in abstract areas, dealing with virtual concepts or universal theories, however, if you’re keen to use your maths on more experimental projects that mesh together with other disciplines (optics, biology, and chemistry), READ ON!
We’re looking for a PhD level mathematician to work on novel scientific applications. They will analyse experimental data, looking for quantitative trends and significant correlations in order to optimise and facilitate processes.
- Top academic pedigree – 1st or 2.1 in MMath (or similar) from a top ranked university (Cambridge or Oxford) followed by a doctorate in Mathematics or Statistics.
- Demonstrable experience with combinatorial design theory – preferably working on projects involving scientific experimentation in areas including bioinformatics or quantitative data analysis.
- Specific understanding of matrices, arrays, block designs or factorial design would be beneficial.
- Good communication skills – must be able to work within a multidisciplinary, technical team.
Interested candidates must be able to work in the UK without restriction. In return, you can expect a healthy work-life balance as well as an excellent remunerations package.
PhD / DPhil, Postdoc, Combinatorial Statistics, Bioinformatics, Experimental Design, Optimisation, Quant Analysis
