The University of Melbourne's School of Mathematics and Statistics is one of Australia's leading mathematics and statistics schools. It has achieved this status through the high quality of its research and teaching programs. The School offers a wide range of subjects to undergraduate and postgraduate students and is involved in aspects of community life that impact on the interests of the School and the discipline.

This research associate (post-doctoral or visiting) position in pure mathematics at the University of Melbourne is funded through the ARC Discovery Project "Elliptic Schubert Calculus" with investigators N.
