Are you passionate about teaching Actuarial Science and would you like to develop in a friendly, internationally-recognised, supportive environment? Then why not join the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science (SMSAS) at the University of Kent.
The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science (SMSAS) has a rich research and teaching culture in Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science. The School is located in the purpose-built Sibson Building, which provides modern workspaces for research, teaching and collaboration.
The Centre of Actuarial Science, Risk and Investment (CASRI) within SMSAS provides a focus for teaching and research in Actuarial Science and Finance-related programmes. In teaching there is a strong emphasis on accreditation, leading to exemptions from professional examinations, and most CASRI staff are qualified actuaries. Research areas include capital assessment techniques relating to new regulations in financial services, the implications of genetic information for insurance, and mortality and longevity risk.
The post holder will be expected to make a significant contribution to teaching, scholarship and enterprise activities within the School, and to the life of the School in general.
As a Lecturer in Actuarial Science you will:
- Deliver high quality undergraduate and postgraduate level lectures
- Undertake teaching of both undergraduate and postgraduate students, including the development of new modules and providing support for student learning
- Supervise undergraduate and postgraduate projects
- Collaborate with colleagues in the School on course development, delivery and assessment, taking on appropriate management and administrative responsibilities
- Take part in the enterprise and recruitment activities of the School and undertake administrative duties assigned by the Head of School or their nominee
To succeed in this role you will:
- Be a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries
- Possess sufficient breadth or depth of specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within established teaching programmes
- Have excellent interpersonal, presentation and communication skills
The SMAS is widely recognised for promoting equality and diversity in mathematics, statistics, and actuarial science, and currently holds an Athena SWAN Silver Award. We particularly welcome applications from female and ethic minority candidates as they are under-represented at this level in the school.
