QUT's School of Mathematical Sciences is seeking to recruit a talented researcher in structural optimisation to work on the computational design of piezoelectric sensors. The project is multidisciplinary in nature, and the successful candidate would also have the opportunity to contribute to experimental aspects of the project.

This work requires background knowledge in computational mechanics and, preferably, structural optimisation. The project will involve collaboration with researchers in robotics at CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency.

Key responsibilities include: • Undertaking original research in computational mechanics and structural optimisation. • Interpreting the computational mathematics and engineering literature to guide the development of the project. • Collaborating with project partners at CSIRO to progress engineering applications and prototypes. • Disseminating research through high quality journal publications in engineering and computational mathematics, as well as through conference presentations. • Assisting in the supervision of research students at undergraduate level. At Level B, assisting in the supervision of research students at postgraduate level. • At Level B, contributing to strategic planning of the research project. • There may an opportunity to teach mathematics and/or statistics units in the school. • Implementing and administering University policy within the Faculty with respect to equitable access to education and workplace health and safety.
