Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics (Women-Only Applicants)

 

SCHOOL OF MATHEMATICS AND PHYSICS, THE UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND, BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA

 

The School of Mathematics and Physics is part of the Faculty of Science at The University of Queensland. The Discipline of Mathematics is located in the School of Mathematics and Physics. It is the leading provider of tertiary mathematics and statistics education in Queensland. Undergraduate programs offered are BMath, BSc and BSc with Honours, BA and BA with Honours. Coursework degrees (MSc, MDataSc, MFinMath) and research degrees (MPhil and PhD) are offered at postgraduate level.

 

The Discipline is internationally recognised for its research excellence and hosts a number of first-class research centres. Research is carried out at the cutting edge across a broad spectrum of areas in mathematics and statistics.

 

The University of Queensland is one of the top three universities in Australia, measured by the quality of its comprehensive range of research fields. In addition to providing excellent potential for interdisciplinary research, the University is located in the vibrant riverfront city of Brisbane, whose sub-tropical climate, cultural diversity, and proximity to coastal regions make it an attractive environment in which to live.

 

About This Opportunity

 

The School seeks to recruit a staff member with a developed research program in applied mathematics broadly interpreted, including mathematical modelling, applied probability, mathematical data science and computational mathematics, or a closely related area of mathematics. The appointee will be required to engage in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and curriculum development, including service courses. In addition, the appointee will supervise Higher Degree by Research, postgraduate coursework and Honours students, conduct high-quality research and perform administrative, outreach and other activities associated with the School.

 

This position is located at our picturesque St Lucia campus, renowned as one of Australia’s most attractive university campuses, and located just 7km from Brisbane’s city centre. Bounded by the Brisbane River on three sides, and with outstanding public transport connections, our 114-hectare site provides a perfect work environment – you can enjoy the best of both worlds: a vibrant campus with the tradition of an established university.

 

Our Ideal Candidate

 

Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent in applied mathematics or a closely related discipline, with an established record of outstanding original research commensurate with career stage. They should have a strong publication record and potential or demonstrated ability to attract external grant funding. They will be an enthusiastic teacher, with the ability to teach courses and supervise projects at undergraduate and postgraduate level, including courses for non-specialist students. Applicants should be able to demonstrate an ability or potential to establish effective professional relationships and to represent and promote the academic discipline at a university and wider community level, including industry, government and professional bodies, as well as to contribute to internal and external service.

 

The filling of this position is intended to constitute an equal opportunity measure under Section 105 of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991(Qld). The position is therefore only open to women.
