“New developments in pattern formation in biological systems”.

The links above gives the current schedule and details of how to register.

Welcome to new lecturer Demi Allen

We are happy to welcome Demi Allen who has recently joined the Department. She is a Lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Exeter. Her main research interests are in Metric Number Theory, Diophantine Approximation and Fractal Geometry, all of which relate to purer aspects of Dynamical Systems.

Virtual Workshop: Early Warning Signs for Abrupt Transitions, 13th October 2021

This workshop is an online event under the EU Horizon 2020 funded project “TiPES – Tipping Points in the Earth System“. It is organized by Peter Ashwin, University of Exeter, Niklas Boers, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, and Kerstin Lux, Technical University of Munich.

Peter Ashwin (Exeter)

Claire Postlethwaite (Auckland)

Vacancy: Postdoctoral research fellow on the dynamics of biomedical and healthcare models.

We are looking to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for a duration of 2.5 years to participate in one or more of a selection of projects investigating collective behaviours in dynamical systems models of processes of biomedical and healthcare relevance. These projects will be undertaken working with Prof Peter Ashwin and Dr Kyle Wedgwood as part of the EPSRC Hub for Quantitative Modelling in Healthcare at the University of Exeter. The specific project(s) will be tailored to the expertise and interests of the successful applicant. Example projects include studying pattern formation during embryonic development, generation of collective oscillations in neuronal networks, transitions in the progression of type 2 diabetes or reversibility of anti-microbial resistance. The successful applicant will liaise with collaborators (based at the University of Exeter and elsewhere) to develop and refine mathematical models of these systems and will apply numerical and analytical techniques to study the dynamics produced by these models.

The deadline for applications is 17th October 2021, with the post starting from 3rd Jan 2022.


Lecturer/Senior Lecturers in Pure Mathematics (Mathematical Analysis)

We are seeking to appoint 2 full time posts, either Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Pure Mathematics. The post/grade will be dependent on skills and experience. The posts will contribute to extending the research profile of mathematics at Exeter, and the application deadline is 16th 30th August 2021.

Applications are particularly encouraged from those working in areas of Mathematical Analysis (broadly interpreted) related or complementary to existing research strengths in the groups “Dynamical Systems and Analysis” and/or “Number Theory, Algebra and Geometry”. Your duties will cover all aspects of research, teaching and administration (see this link to advert and job specification for more details).
