The Position

The Mathematical Data Science Centre (MDSC), located within the ANU’s Mathematical Sciences Institute (MSI) invites applications from outstanding researchers who are interested in the study of mathematical aspects of Data Science, and in the way a better understanding of such questions can be implemented in real-world algorithms. 

These tenured positions are in MSI/MDSC, and we are looking for candidates with the potential of becoming part of the Centre's future leadership team. The positions involve research and teaching (reduced to one course per year in the first two years).  Appointments are at academic levels B, C, or D (roughly the equivalent of Assistant/Associate Professor/Professor in the US system), depending on applicant’s experience.

The standard ANU salary package is: Level B $103,841 – $117,736 pa plus 17% superannuation, Level C $124,685 - $138,583 pa plus 17% superannuation, and Level D $149,002 - $158,269 pa plus 17% superannuation. The positions come with a generous research support grant.

The MDSC has two strategic partnerships: with Google Research Australia and with ETH Zurich.  Successful candidates are encouraged to pursue collaborations with these partners. The ANU would accommodate successful applicants who would like to reduce their employment percentage and work with Google Research Australia at a fractional appointment. Applicants who are interested in fractional appointments should contact Professor Peter Bartlett  (

Closing date: Review of your application is guaranteed if the materials are received by 2 January 2024. The search will continue until the positions are filled, or until 28 February 2024, whichever comes first.
