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. 

The MSI-Google Research Fellowships are part of a new partnership between Google Research Australia, headed by Professor Peter Bartlett, and MSI's Mathematical Data Science Centre (MDSC), led by Professor Shahar Mendelson. 

These prestigious fellowships are fixed-term, research intensive positions for up to five years, at academic levels B or C (roughly the equivalent of Assistant/Associate Professor in the US system). In exceptional cases a fixed-term position can be converted to an ongoing (tenured) position. 

Successful candidates will be able to devote their time to research activities, with a minimal (graduate level and related to the core interests of the MDSC) teaching and administrative load. The standard ANU salary package is: Level B $103,841 – $117,736 pa plus 17% superannuation, and Level C $124,685 - $138,583 pa plus 17% superannuation. The fellowships 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 our strategic partners. The ANU would accommodate successful applicants who would like to reduce their employment percentage and work for Google Research Australia at a fractional appointment. Applicants who are interested in fractional appointments should contact Professor Peter Bartlett  (
