About us The University of Sydney is Australia's first university and has an outstanding global reputation for academic and research excellence. It is the only Australian university to have been rated well above world class (5) in the mathematical sciences in both Australia-wide research evaluation exercises to date.

The School of Mathematics and Statistics is home to a diverse group of 70 academic staff with a support team of 10 professional staff; in particular we have more female Professors in the mathematical sciences than any other institution in Australia. Our research interests include a broad spectrum of the mathematical sciences and their applications. We attract outstanding undergraduate students including many talented students who go on to higher degrees. The large cohort of postgraduate research students and many overseas visitors both benefit from and help to sustain an outstanding research environment. We host the University of Sydney Mathematical Research Institute whose aim is to transform the mathematical sciences in Australia, and which has received $6.5M of philanthropic support to date.
