Subject: Induction Course for New Lecturers, UK, Sep 2022

Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge
14 - 15 September 2022

Through a community initiative supported by the Institute of
Mathematics and its Applications, the Isaac Newton Institute for
Mathematical Sciences and the Heads of Departments of Mathematics
Sciences (HoDoMS) and endorsed by the Royal Statistical Society and
the London Mathematical Society, we are delighted to announce that in
September 2022 the two-day Induction Course for lecturers new to
teaching mathematics and statistics within Higher Education will once
again take place. Whilst arrangements may still be subject to change
due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and any future Government
guidance, we are currently preparing for the Induction Course to be
delivered as an in-person only activity to maximise the opportunities
for informal networking and discussion that have long formed a
highly-valued part of this meeting. The Induction Course for New
Lecturers in the Mathematical Sciences has been designed by the
mathematics community so that it is ideally suited for anyone who is
new to or has limited experience teaching mathematics or statistics
within UK higher education. It will be delivered by individuals with
significant experience of teaching in the mathematical sciences and
will focus upon the specific details and issues that arise in
mathematics and statistics teaching and learning within higher
education including topics such as: Lecturing; Supporting student
learning; Making teaching interactive; Assessment, examinations and
feedback; Linking teaching & research; Using technology to enhance
teaching and learning; Using examples and mathematical problem
solving; Teaching statistics and its applications.

Registration is now open via

A full programme for the Induction Course will be released in July
2022, but for questions or queries about the academic content or
structure of the Induction Course, please contact Michael Grove: For general conference queries please

Subject: Postdoc Position, Applied Mathematics, Germany

Please find below an advertisement for a postdoc position within the
big German Collaborative Research Center TRR181
( The position is available in
subproject M5 with the overarching goal of Reducing Spurious Mixing
and Energetic Inconsistencies in Realistic Ocean-Modelling
Applications. In this context the postdoc will be employed in work
package #3, dealing with Stabilized kernel reconstructions on optimal
stencils. Particular focus is on the development of algorithms for the
construction of optimal stencils on two-dimensional layers of
triangular grids for high-order WENO schemes and kernel-based
reconstructions using the information on the land/bottom mask.

From: Tony Stillfjord
Date: April 25, 2022
Subject: Postdoc Position, Lund Univ, Sweden

A 2-year postdoc position is available in my group at the Centre for
Mathematical Sciences, Lund University, Sweden.

In the project, we will develop and analyze numerical methods for
neural differential equations. The intended focus is on the forward
and backward time integration of the underlying differential
equation. That is, classical numerical analysis rather than
optimization or machine learning. However, given a strong candidate
with a background in optimization, we may also consider e.g. the
overall optimization process for neural networks of such structure.

Imaging with Randomised Optimisation GrantRef=3DEP/S026045/1.

This project is a collaborative project between mathematicians in Bath
and Cambridge, medical researchers and clinicians from Addenbrookes'
hospital and GE Healthcare, with support from advisors from UCL,
Oxford, Kings College London, University of Helsinki and KTH
Stockholm. We build on the insights from our previous research and
continue to develop advanced image reconstruction techniques directly
tailored to PET imaging applications, putting a strategy in place to
ensure that successful methods are adopted widely in healthcare.
