The Faculty has a distinguished history of research and has many Nobel prize winners among its alumni. Our research continues to be ground-breaking with Informatics, Mathematics and Physics research all in the top 10 universities in the country according to the REF or QS World University Rankings.

In the 2014 REF more than half of mathematics and physics research was rated as internationally leading or competitive with 31% of mathematics research being world-leading and 95% of physics research being rated as of international quality.

We have a wide-range of research interests covered within the faculty ranging from the very small to the infinite. From nanophotonics to cosmology, mechatronics to wireless communication, cell biology to theoretical physics; we are working at all scales to understand our universe and to change it for the better. 

A lot of our work is interdisciplinary with links to other departments and research centres such as Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, the Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Francis Crick Institute, as well as with industrial partners such as EDF Research, the Pensions Policy Institute and Unilever.



It’s an exciting time to join us. The Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences at King’s College London is embarking on a period of ambitious growth, supported by significant university investment, which aims to build upon our current strengths, to deliver world class research, education and innovation.

We welcome Fellowship applications from UK and overseas candidates in Chemistry, Informatics, Engineering, Mathematics and Physics.
