Applications are invited for the Professorship of Mathematical Finance to be held in the Mathematical Institute with effect from 1 January 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. A non-stipendiary Fellowship at St Hugh’s College is attached to this Professorship.

The Professorship of Mathematical Finance is one of the most senior positions in the Institute and is a cornerstone of Oxford's commitment to research across the whole range of mathematics and its applications. In this context the scope of Mathematical Finance is interpreted broadly to include the mathematical foundations of the subject and work in the emerging data-facing and computational aspects. Applications for the Professorship from these latter areas will be especially welcome.

The successful candidate will be a researcher of the highest international calibre in Mathematical Sciences and will lead the department’s research group in Mathematical and Computational Finance, which has an outstanding record and attracts extremely strong graduate students and postdocs. They will contribute to teaching on the department’s renowned Master’s level courses in Mathematical and Computational Finance, as well as to teaching at undergraduate level.
