The Mathematical Institute is proud to hold a Race Equality Charter Bronze Award and a departmental Athena SWAN Silver Award, which guide our progress towards advancing racial and gender equality. As part of our commitment to openness, inclusivity and transparency, we would particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented in academic posts at Oxford. The University is committed to equality and valuing diversity.

Activities involving the promotion of diversity in mathematics will be taken into account when balancing overall workload. Departmental duties will be reduced in the first year of the appointment.

The department was awarded an Athena SWAN Silver Award in 2016 in recognition of its commitment to addressing gender inequalities, to tackling the unequal representation of women in science, and to improving career progression for female academics.
