The Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences is a thriving centre of learning, teaching and research in a vast range of engineering disciplines, computer science - including machine learning, high-level mathematics and architecture, planning and landscape architecture. Many of its academic staff are world leaders in their fields and graduates are highly regarded by employers.

The School of Mathematical Science at the University of Adelaide is recruiting three ARC Grant-Funded Researcher positions and a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer position. For further information on each of these positions, please see below:

ARC Grant-Funded Researcher A - Uncertainties in coherent transport

Many systems in nature are driven by time-varying inputs; prototypical examples being pollutants, heat energy, hurricanes and oceanic eddies being moved according to prevalent velocities. There are often coherently moving regions which have dominant influence in transport, e.g., the Gulf Stream, Jupiter's Great Red Spot, the Antarctic Circumpolar Vortex, or unmixed fluid blobs within an industrial mixer. Using velocity data to understand the motion of these fundamental entities is now well established; however, ascribing uncertainties to such predictions is less so.

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to drive new theoretical and computational analysis for uncertainty quantification in such situations, funded by the Australian Research Council for the project "Uncertainty in coherent transport of particles and intrinsic properties" awarded to Sanjeeva Balasuriya. The successful candidate will develop new computational methods in dealing with experimental and observational velocity data, as well as contribute to advances in the theory of coherent structure detection.

ARC Grant-funded Researcher: Microfluidic flow and particle dynamics

This research position will provide key mathematical modelling for the ARC Discovery Project “Prediction of inertial particle focusing in curved microfluidic ducts”. The successful applicant will join a thriving team developing mathematical models to give quantitative understanding of the fundamental physics of suspension flows in curved microfluidic ducts. The work will provide valuable understanding for design of microfluidic sorters, whose uses include the separation of circulating tumour cells from a routine blood sample. The successful applicant will be based at the University of Adelaide, the home University of the project leader Prof Yvonne Stokes. The work will also require collaboration with the co-investigators Dr Brendan Harding, Victoria University of Wellington (NZ), and Prof Andrea Bertozzi, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). There will be opportunity for involvement in experimental validation of the modelling to be done at the bioengineering laboratory of Prof Di Carlo, UCLA.

ARC Grant-funded Researcher: Modelling wave–sea ice interactions

Sea ice is experiencing dramatic changes in response to rising temperatures, which is having a profound impact on its role in the climate system. Storm waves are recognised as having a crucial impact on sea ice. Waves propagate 100s of kilometres into the ice-covered ocean, where they break-up the ice cover into small floes, and create a highly dynamic region known as the marginal ice zone. Modelling wave–ice interactions is particularly challenging because the ice cover strongly influences wave propagation, as well as the waves impacting the ice cover. Over the past decade, several major international field programmes have been conducted to study wave–ice interactions. The data generated is providing the basis for modelling breakthroughs. We are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to drive the next steps in modelling nonlinear wave propagation through sea ice, wave-induced ice breakup, and resulting ice dynamics. The project involves mathematical modelling, implementation in large-scale prediction models, and assessments against field measurements. The successful candidate will interact with an international team spanning Australia, New Zealand and the USA. Opportunities are available for domestic and international travel, to participate in conferences and for research visits. The position is funded by the Australian Research Council, and you will be based in the School of Mathematical Sciences, under the supervision of A/Prof Luke Bennetts.
