• Full time 2 years fixed term employment, located on the Camperdown Campus at the School of Mathematics and Statistics

• Opportunity to contribute to research focused on Spectral Theory of Hamiltonian Dynamical Systems and be part of world-class team of mathematicians

• Base Salary Level A $95K - $98 p.a. + 17% superannuation

About the opportunity

We are one of the largest mathematical sciences schools in Australia, and the University of Sydney is the only Australian university to have received the highest rating of 5 out of 5 for research in the mathematical sciences in every Australian Research Council Excellence in Research for Australia assessment to date. The University also hosts the Sydney Mathematical Research Institute (SMRI), which attracts leading mathematical scientists from all over the world to do research with Australian collaborators.

The University of Sydney is welcoming applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. The successful applicant will be working in the Applied Mathematics research group focusing on the ARC funded Discovery Project on Spectral Theory of Hamiltonian Dynamical Systems with Professor Holger Dullin and Dr. Robert Marangell. The research project will apply powerful geometric tools like the Maslov index and the Evans function to analyze the stability of solutions of non-linear Hamiltonian partial differential equations. Applications will include the study of inviscid fluids, the analysis of spectral monodromy and the Hamiltonian perturbation theory of Jacobi operators.

Your key responsibilities will be to:

• undertake research in Spectral Theory of Hamiltonian Dynamical Systems • publication of research papers • support teaching activities and the supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The School of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Sydney is one of the largest in Australia. It has more than 89 academic staff to supervise research and teaching 74 postgraduate students and 925 equivalent full-time student-load undergraduate students.

About you

The University values courage and creativity; openness and engagement; inclusion and diversity; and respect and integrity. As such, we see the importance of recruiting talent aligned to these values and are looking for a Postdoctoral Research Associate who has:

• a PhD (or near completion) in Mathematics • demonstrated ability to conduct research/scholarly activities under limited supervision • the ability and a willingness to collaborate in teams to contribute to long-term research goals • excellent communication (written and verbal), organisational and problem-solving skills with attention to detail • a strong track record of publishing research.
