  • The Department

    With specialisms including pure and applied mathematics, data science, statistics, and actuarial science, maths at Essex has a broad reach. From exploring the economic impact of cow social networks to the mathematical modelling of brain evolution to improve patient care; from solving scheduling problems at the Port of Felixstowe to leading the data revolution at the heart of London's “Tech City” and the University's pioneering work on Big Data – our research explores issues that have a real impact on people's everyday lives and the world around us.

    As a growing and influential department, we still make sure our staff and students know each other personally – we are a true academic family. We are based in the university's new STEM Centre in the heart of Colchester campus. This is now a fantastic time to join the Department.

    In response to COVID-19 the University has implemented adjusted working arrangements for many staff, with a significant number working on a hybrid basis. At the time of a job offer, hybrid or on-campus working will be discussed and considered on an individual basis but you will be expected to be based within the UK.

    At the University of Essex, internationalism and diversity is central to who we are and what we do. We are committed to being a cosmopolitan, internationally oriented university that is welcoming to staff and students from all countries, faiths and backgrounds, where you can find the world in one place.
