PhD Top-up Scholarships: Ocean and Sea Ice Modelling

Closing date: 30 November 2021

Are you interested in understanding ocean physics, and do you have skills in computational/mathematical modelling?

The Consortium for Ocean-Sea Ice Modelling in Australia (COSIMA) is providing opportunities for PhD
students to work at the intersection of high-performance computing and ocean-climate dynamics.
Projects are available focusing on a wide range of topics, including:

  1. The role of sea ice in the climate system;
  2. Modelling biogeochemical cycles in the global ocean;
  3. Coupling between surface waves and large-scale currents;
  4. Antarctic ice shelves and their interaction with the Southern Ocean; and
  5. The sensitivity of ocean dynamics to vertical coordinate systems in ocean models.

These scholarships are valued at $7,500 per year for 3.5 years. Successful applicants will also need to be
successful in receiving a Research Training Program (RTP) scholarship, or equivalent primary scholarship,
at a COSIMA partner university (ANU, UNSW, UTas, USyd, UniMelb or U Adelaide).

To Apply, you should submit a package to Ms Alina Bryleva including:

  • A half-page statement explaining your research interests and your planned work with COSIMA.
  • Your CV and academic transcripts.
  • Provide amount and source of any existing scholarships, both top-ups and a primary stipend.

These top-up scholarships are intended primarily for new students, however existing students working on one of the COSIMA models will also be considered. Preference will be given to competitive applicants who do not already receive a top-up scholarship from another source.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Pure Mathematics@USydney – Tensor Categories

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

Closing date: 11:59pm, Monday, 25 October 2021

Opportunity to contribute to research focused on Representation Theory, Category Theory and Algebraic Geometry and be part of world-class mathematicians’ team

Base Salary Level B $110K p.a. + 17% superannuation

The University of Sydney is welcoming applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. The successful applicant will be working in the intersection of Representation Theory, Category Theory and Algebraic Geometry, centered around the theory of tensor categories. On the one hand, the language of tensor categories allows one to employ techniques from representation theory in various settings, such as in theories of motives or perverse sheaves. On the other hand, techniques from representation theory are used to create structure theory for tensor categories via tannakian reconstruction.
