• undertake research in multiple time-scale dynamical systems theory and its application
• publish research papers
• demonstrate research excellence.

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
• expertise in multi-scale dynamical systems
• knowledge about modelling and analysis of biological systems and biochemcial reaction networks is desirable
• demonstrated ability to conduct research/scholarly activities under limited supervision
• the ability and a willingness to collaborate in multidisciplinary teams to contribute to long-term research goals
• a strong track record of publishing their research

• Full time 2 year fixed term, located on the Camperdown Campus at the School of Mathematics and Statistics
• Opportunity to make valuable contributions to research at the interface between Dynamical Systems and Machine Learning

About the opportunity

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on a project entitled “A dynamical systems theory approach to machine learning”. The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Professor Georg Gottwald on developing, understanding and applying machine learning techniques using tools from dynamical systems theory. This project has recently been funded by the Australian Research Council.


Forecasting the future state of a high-dimensional complex multi-scale system is a challenge we face in areas ranging from climate science to epidemiology. Even when basic physical mechanisms have been identified, the actual evolution equations are often unknown. This project will develop a computationally cheap machine learning framework for forecasting. We will develop mathematical theory underpinning the novel methodology, as well as applying it to the perennial problem of subgrid-scale parametrisation in climate modelling.

Your key responsibilities will be to:

• undertake research at the interface between dynamical systems and machine learning
• publish research papers
• demonstrate research excellence.
