Heilbronn Research Fellowships in Quantum Computing


The Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research invites applications for a Research Fellowship in Quantum Computing in the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol. The successful candidate must demonstrate prior evidence of relevant accomplishments, and/or an outstanding research track-record in a mathematical discipline (including Mathematical/Theoretical Physics or Theoretical Computer Science) with clearly laid-out plans to transition into Quantum Computing.  Fellows divide their time equally between their own research and the internal research programme in Quantum Computing at the Heilbronn Institute, which offers opportunities to engage in collaborative work as well as individual projects.

Due to the nature of the Heilbronn Institute’s work, Fellows are required to obtain and maintain a Developed Vetting (DV) security clearance. UK resident UK nationals will normally be able to meet this condition: other potential applicants should consult the Heilbronn Manager, himr-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk about eligibility before applying.

This post is funded through the UKRI/EPSRC `Additional Funding Programme for Mathematical Sciences’. For more information about the Heilbronn Institute, see https://heilbronn.ac.uk/

The salary range for this Fellowship is £38,017-£42,792 depending on previous experience. There is a salary supplement of £3.5K pa, in recognition of the distinctive nature of a Heilbronn Fellowship. Payment of this supplement is conditional on a PhD thesis having been accepted in final form. In addition, a fund of at least £2.5K pa to pay for research expenses will be available.

The Fellowship will be for three years, with a preferred start date in October 2021, though another date may be possible by prior agreement. Extensions of up to three years may be available, which can be held at a wider range of universities in the UK.

The Heilbronn Institute is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aimed at advancing women’s careers in mathematics and we particularly welcome applications from women and other under-represented groups for this post. For more information, please see https://heilbronn.ac.uk/diversity/

Candidates should apply via the online University of Bristol recruitment site, http://www.bristol.ac.uk/jobs/find/ and search by the job number ACAD105160. Applications need to include a statement of proposed research (no more than one page), along with a CV. Candidates intending to transition to Quantum Computing should include in their statement an explanation of the route they propose to take. All applicants should ask three referees to email references to himr-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk prior to the closing date. It is the candidate’s responsibility to ensure that the reference letters are received prior to the closing date.

Informal enquiries about the research environment can be made to:

Professor Ashley Montanaro: ashley.montanaro@bristol.ac.uk or Professor Noah Linden: n.linden@bristol.ac.uk

The application deadline is Monday May 3rd 2021.

We anticipate holding interviews on June 1st 2021.

Heilbronn Research Fellowships


The Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research invites applications for Heilbronn Research Fellowships. Fellows divide their time equally between their own research and the internal research programme of the Heilbronn Institute, which offers opportunities to engage in collaborative work as well as individual projects. Fellowships are available at any of our partner institutions: Imperial College LondonKing’s College LondonUniversity of BristolUniversity College LondonUniversity of Manchester.

Research areas of interest include, but are not restricted to, Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics, Computational Statistics, Data Science, Number Theory, Probability, and Quantum Information. These areas are interpreted broadly: Fellows have previously been appointed with backgrounds in most areas of Pure Mathematics and Statistics, and in several areas of Mathematical/Theoretical Physics.

 Due to the nature of the Heilbronn Institute’s work, Fellows will be required to obtain and maintain a Developed Vetting (DV) security clearance. UK resident UK nationals will normally be able to meet this condition: other potential applicants should consult the Heilbronn Manager, himr-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk about eligibility before applying.

 The salary range for these Fellowships is £38,017-£42,792 depending on previous experience, plus the London weighting where appropriate. There is a salary supplement of £3.5K pa, in recognition of the distinctive nature of these Fellowships. Payment of this supplement is conditional on a PhD thesis having been accepted in final form. In addition, a fund of at least £2.5K pa to pay for research expenses will be available to each Fellow.

The Fellowship will be for three years, with a preferred start date in October 2021, though another date may be possible by prior agreement. Extensions of up to three years may be available, which can be held at a wider range of universities in the UK.

The Heilbronn Institute is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme aimed at advancing women’s careers in mathematics and we particularly welcome applications from women and other under-represented groups for this post. For more information, please see https://heilbronn.ac.uk/diversity/

Applications will be made through mathjobs.org. Applicants will need to submit a cover letter, indicating the institutions where they wish to hold their Fellowship from the above list of partner universities. In addition, we require a CV and a one-page statement of proposed research. Applicants must also arrange for three letters of reference to be uploaded to the mathjobs.org website, prior to the closing date. Candidates only need to make one application, even if they are interested in applying for a Fellowship in two or more of our host institutions.

We anticipate holding interviews during the week of January 18th 2021.

The application deadline is 11.59pm GMT, Sunday November 15th 2020. Further information about these roles can be found here.

Thank you for your interest, these positions have now been filled.



Data Science Heilbronn Fellowship


Applications for the Data Science Heilbronn Fellowship should be made through the University of Bristol recruitment webpage.

The School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol and the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research (HIMR) invite applications for one or more Research Fellowships in Data Science.

Heilbronn Research Fellows divide their time equally between their own research and the research programme of the Heilbronn Institute. Exceptionally, a successful candidate may be able to negotiate up to 80% of personal research time if working on a relevant topic, including any foundational methodology supporting the exploitation of large-scale, dynamic, and/or complex data. The candidate must demonstrate prior evidence of relevant accomplishments and/or an outstanding research track-record in a mathematical discipline (including Mathematical Physics or Theoretical Computer Science) with clearly laid-out plans to transition into Data Science.

HIMR and the Alan Turing Institute have a partnership agreement which enables Heilbronn Research Fellows to carry out some of their personal research as part of the Turing Institute’s research programme, if they wish.

Fellowships will be for three years, with a preferred start date in October 2021.

Due to the nature of the HIMR’s work, Fellows must satisfy security vetting before appointment. UK resident UK nationals will normally be able to meet this condition: other potential applicants should consult the Heilbronn Manager himr-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk about their eligibility before applying.

There is a salary supplement of £3.5K pa, in recognition of the distinctive nature of these Fellowships, conditional on a PhD thesis having been accepted in final form. There is a fund of at least £2.5k pa to pay for research expenses.

They should ask three referees to email references to himr-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk prior to the closing date. It is the candidate’s responsibility to ensure that the reference letters are received prior to the closing date.

Candidates may contact the Director of the Institute for Statistical Science, Professor Oliver Johnson, at O.Johnson@bristol.ac.uk

The application deadline is 11.59pm GMT, Sunday November 15th 2020.
