Fellowship Description:    

*** this fellowship has been closed and new applications are no longer being accepted. ***

The School of Mathematics and Statistics at The University of Melbourne has established two prestigious four-year research fellowships, for exceptional early career researchers in the mathematical sciences, whose research has the potential to have a significant impact, either in fundamental research or toward practical applications:

1. The Harcourt-Doig Research Fellowship, named after the pioneering Alison Harcourt-Doig

2. The Wurru-wurru Research Fellowship, named in the Woi wurrung language of the local indigenous community, the Wurundjeri people

The School maintains activity in all areas of the mathematical sciences. It has current research foci in pure and applied mathematics, mathematical biology, mathematical physics, operations research, data science, discrete mathematics, statistics, statistical genomics, stochastic modelling and probability.

The successful applicant is expected to lead a vigorous research program in their area with the potential for significant impact. The University of Melbourne is located in one of the greatest cities in the world and provides ample opportunities for the supervision of strong master’s and PhD level research students and offers a wide range of opportunities for research collaborations within the School, the Faculty of Science as well as the broader University community.

The School has an ongoing commitment to improving our gender balance and has demonstrated success with a recruitment program that is focussed on creating a gender balance, hence women are strongly encouraged to apply for these Fellowships.

Applications to be submitted by 17 November 2019.
