The School of Mathematical Sciences is one of the largest UK mathematical science departments and is one of five Schools in the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Queen Mary. The School is entering an exciting period of strategic growth with significant investment in new posts over the next three years across a broad range of disciplines. In addition to academic appointments, approximately £20M is being invested in the School’s building to provide state-of-the-art research, teaching and study facilities for staff and students.
Queen Mary University of London (link is external) is one of 24 leading UK universities represented by the Russell Group, that are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience, excellent graduate employability and unrivalled links with business and the public sector. Queen Mary has a strong tradition of academic excellence.

Queen Mary holds a university-level Bronze Award for the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises and celebrates good employment practice for women working in mathematics, science, engineering and technology in higher education and research.
The School of Mathematical Sciences was awarded its own department-level Athena Swan Bronze award in September 2013, and received a bronze renewal in November 2016.
