  Institution description
  • The University of Cambridge is one of the oldest universities in the world, and one of the largest in the United Kingdom.
  • It has a world-wide reputation for outstanding academic achievement and the high quality of research undertaken in a wide range of science and arts subjects.
  • The Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics is the largest and strongest of its kind in the United Kingdom and was awarded the top grade 5* in the last Research Assessment Exercise.
  • The Department currently consists of 21 Professors (13 of whom are FRS), 8 Readers, 12 Senior Lecturers and Lecturers, 6 Assistant Directors of Research, 100 Post-doctoral Fellows and 100 Research Students (approximately).
