Established in January 2008 through Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) funding, the ECFM is Ireland's first national research centre for Financial Mathematics, with links to key players in the Irish financial services industry and to international researchers. It acts as an umbrella organisation for all current Financial Mathematics research grants of ECFM members.

The ECFM wishes to recruit two Research Fellows, with one position in each of the Schools of Mathematical Sciences in DCU and UCC.
