The Department of Mathematics invites applications for one or more Research Fellowships in association with the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research. You will divide your time equally between your own research and the research programme of the Heilbronn Institute. We seek candidates with skills in areas of statistical data mining. Topics of interest include semi-supervised learning, recommender systems, time series and streaming data analysis, and data mining for dynamic graphs and networks: however, your own research need not be directly in these areas.
The Fellowships will be for three years, with a preferred start date in January 2013, though another date may be possible by agreement. Due to the nature of the Heilbronn Institute's work, you must satisfy vetting before appointment. UK resident UK nationals will normally be able to meet this condition: other potential applicants should consult the Director about their eligibility before applying. You may become a member of the USS pension scheme. Research expenses of at least £2,000 per annum will also be available. There is a salary supplement of £3,500 pa, in recognition of the distinctive nature of these Fellowships. Payment of this supplement is conditional on a finished thesis having been accepted in final form, because we expect Heilbronn Fellows to hold PhDs before working at the Heilbronn Institute.
Enquiries about the fellowship may be addressed to
Dr Oliver Johnson, School of Mathematics, telephone +44 (0)117 928 8632,
e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org and enquiries about the work of the Heilbronn Institute may also be addressed to the Director of the Institute,
Professor Malcolm MacCallum, telephone +44 (0)117 980 6303, e-mail: email@example.com
Applications should include a statement of proposed research (not more than one side of A4). You should ask three referees to send references by the closing date to: Ms Chrystal Cherniwchan, School of Mathematics, University of Bristol, BS8 1TW, telephone +44 (0) 117 331 5260 or email: Chrystal.Cherniwchan@bristol.ac.uk. It is your own responsibility to ensure that the reference letters are received by the closing date (these may be sent by email also).

Alternatively you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone +44 (0) 117 954 6947, quoting the reference number 17150.
The closing date for applications is 9.00am, 10 July 2012.
