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 is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across mathematical disciplines. Under 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 strongly encourages applications from suitably qualified female candidates.

The School of Mathematics and Statistics is seeking to further enhance its expertise in Applied Mathematics, in the area of modelling in mathematical biology.

The University of Melbourne provides a wide range of opportunities for exciting research collaborations within the School, wider University (biology and medical schools as well as medical institutes), as well as externally. Computational Biology Research is a Hallmark Research Initiative of the University of Melbourne, and has also introduced a new major in this area within the Bachelor of Science degree.

The successful applicant is expected to lead a vigorous research program in mathematical biology, 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. He/she is also required to supervise research students at undergraduate, MSc and PhD levels.  The successful applicant will be expected to undertake administrative tasks for the School.
