The School of Mathematics and Statistics is seeking to further enhance its expertise in pure mathematics and is interested in appointing a suitably qualified female* candidate in this field.

The School maintains activity in all areas of the mathematical sciences. It has research foci in many areas of algebra, analysis, geometry and topology, number theory, continuum modelling, mathematical biology, mathematical physics, discrete mathematics, operations research mathematical and applied statistics including statistical genomics, stochastic modelling and probability theory.

The successful applicant is expected to lead a vigorous research program in the pure mathematics discipline, and should also have a strong commitment to teaching and the supervision of research students. Teaching will occur within the School of Mathematics and Statistics undergraduate and MSc programs. She is also required to supervise research students at undergraduate, MSc and PhD levels. The University of Melbourne provides a wide range of opportunities for exciting research collaborations within the School, wider University, as well as externally. The successful applicant will be expected to undertake administrative tasks for the School.

*The University plan seeks to increase the diversity of the workforce and the representation of women in areas they have been traditionally under-represented. Consistent with this, the School of Mathematics and Statistics is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across mathematical disciplines. Pursuant to a Special Measure under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic), the School is seeking to lift the representation of women and therefore will only consider applications from suitably qualified female candidates for this position.
