Postdocs in Mathematical Phylogenetics @UNSW

Location: UNSW Sydney, School of Mathematics and Statistics
Employment Type: Postdoctoral Fellow — Mathematical Phylogenetics
Duration: Fixed-term 3 years
Remuneration:  Level A
Closing Date: 20 May 2024

Andrew Francis is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work with him on the mathematics of phylogenetic trees and networks. This is a fast-changing field and so the exact research program is likely to evolve, but is likely to include questions arising from bijections between trees and networks on the one hand, and partitions and covers of finite sets on the other. Likewise, the mathematics required for making progress can be diverse, but certainly capacity in discrete mathematics, especially combinatorics and graph theory, will be needed.  

The role will suit someone who loves solving problems, floating speculative ideas, coming up with new questions and angles on problems, and finding solutions. It will suit someone who likes to collaborate but will also be happy to work independently at times due to my governance responsibilities.

To enquire informally about the role please email Andrew:
