The Institute for Mathematical Innovation (IMI) at the University of Bath invites applications from excellent candidates for a role that plays a pivotal part in its national leadership in interdisciplinary and industrial applications of the mathematical sciences.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic Institute Manager to lead on the development and project management of our work with external partners. The role will focus on growing our current and future partnerships with business and industry, with the public sector and local authorities, and with other research funders.

This is a wide-ranging role managing a portfolio of collaborations, with significant responsibility for delivering the strategy of the Institute on a day-to-day basis and maintaining alignment to the long-term vision.

IMI has been explicitly recognised for its successful development of a new model for Knowledge Exchange (KE) for the mathematical sciences by the recent EPSRC / KTN Independent Review of KE in the Mathematical Sciences, chaired by Philip Bond. This post is an opportunity to build on that success and help lead the next phase of IMI’s development.

Details of the Independent Review can be found here: .

IMI’s recent projects have included estimation of risk for the insurance industry, interpretation of physiological data for growth and maturation in adolescents, developing models of crop growth variability due to climate, analysing the effect of imposing a land value tax in London, understanding the variability of the strength of composite materials, and building a database of experts for UNICEF. These projects have involved working with academic staff from the Departments of Mathematical Sciences, Mechanical Engineering, and Health, through to Social and Policy Sciences, and Bath’s Institute for Policy Research, as well as a host of external organisations.

Both the Institute and the University are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive working environment. Flexible working options will be considered wherever possible.
