Reserach Fellow

We invite suitably qualified candidates to apply for a two year fixed-term position as Research Fellow in the Department of Mathematics.
You will have a PhD in mathematics (or equivalent), and will have demonstrated the ability to sustain a successful quality research programme. You will be expected to enhance the research environment, to produce and publish high quality research in mathematics and to collaborate in research with other members of the department.

The funding for this position is not tied to a particular topic or project. Applications are invited from any mathematician whose research interests align with those of members of the department. However to maintain balance in the department, preference will be given to those with interests in pure mathematics. The position is expected to have a small teaching component (approximately half a paper per year), which will be negotiated with the successful applicant.
Current salary range for Research Fellows is NZ$67,477 to $82,383 per year.
