The role

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

What will you be doing?

Heilbronn Research Fellows divide their time equally between their own research and the classified 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. Broadly speaking, this would include any foundational methodology supporting the exploitation of large-scale, dynamic, and/or complex data. The candidate must demonstrate prior evidence of such 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.

You should apply if

Experience of independent research in any methodology supporting the exploitation of large-scale, dynamic and/or complex data, or an outstanding track record of research in a statistical or mathematical discipline (including Mathematical Physics and Theoretical Computer Science), with clearly laid out plans to transition into Data Science.

A publication record commensurate with career stage.

Self-motivation, initiative, and organisational skills in planning and carrying out research.

PhD or equivalent doctoral qualification in a relevant subject by the time you start this fellowship, or very close to completion.

Excellent written and oral communication skills in English.

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

The Fellowship will be for three years, with a preferred start date of 1 October 2022, though another date may be possible by prior agreement.

Candidates interested in learning more about these Fellowships can contact the Director of the Institute of Statistical Science, Professor Oliver Johnson, at

We anticipate holding interviews during the week of mid-January 2022.

The application deadline is 11.59pm GMT, Sunday November 14th 2021.

Additional information

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
