4. New Director

Applications are invited for the N M Rothschild Professorship of Mathematical Sciences from senior academics working in some branch of the mathematical sciences to take up appointment on 1 October 2006.

The successful candidate will also be the Director of the Isaac Newton Institute, a national institute which aims to promote research of the highest international quality in the mathematical sciences for the benefit of the UK community, through the running of major visitor programmes in selected, often interdisciplinary, fields. Candidates should therefore have appropriate managerial and leadership experience. The appointment will be for a fixed term of 5 years.
