School of Mathematical Sciences





Join our future research leaders

World-class talent, working in multidisciplinary teams and with inspiring leaders, are at the heart of capturing new ideas and translating these into world-changing solutions.

As a research-led institution, the University of Nottingham recognises the value and contribution of early career researchers in delivering its ambitious, high-quality research vision. In order to enhance this vital aspect of our research network we will recruit 100 Nottingham Research and Anne McLaren Fellows by the end of 2020.

Research Quality

The School of Mathematical Sciences is delighted to be recognised for the quality of its research in the recent national Research Excellence Framework (REF). The REF assesses UK higher education institutions in all subject areas and is based on submissions provided by each university detailing their research and the wider societal impact that it has had.

Currently the School sits in the top 10 nationally within Mathematical Sciences for 'research power' and 'market share'; with 32% of its research recognised as world-leading and a further 56% as internationally excellent. Its research environment was classified as 75% world-leading in vitality and sustainability, with the remaining 25% internationally excellent reflecting the outstanding setting the School provides for its academic staff as well as its postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers.

Overall, the University of Nottingham is ranked 8th in terms of Research Power.
