Lecturer in Mathematics at University of Western Sydney

Position: Lecturer in Mathematics at Western Sydney University; School of Computer, Data and Mathematical Sciences
Duration: Permanent
Salary range: Level B
Closing date: 29 September 2023

Western Sydney University demonstrated its commitment to foundational science establishing the Centre for Research in Mathematics and Data Science in 2013. Several researchers in the centre hold ARC Discovery Project or Future Fellowship grants, and the centre has become a venue for international AMSI workshops and conferences in pure mathematics. Mathematics has been consistently ranked above world standard in ERA; in ERA 2018, the fields Mathematics (FoR 01), Pure Mathematics (FoR 0101) and Applied Mathematics (FoR 0102) each received a ranking of 4 out of 5.

We seek an energetic, forward-thinking, dynamic, and innovative mathematician to take on a Level B academic position in mathematics for a full-time, permanent position.

Lecturer in Mathematics @Wollongong

Location: The School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics, University of Wollongong
Employment Type: Full time, 4 years fixed term
Duration: 4-year appointment
Remuneration: $84,935–$99,509 + 17% superannuation (Level B)
Closing Date: 12 March 2023

The School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics (SMAS) at the University of Wollongong (UOW) is within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences. SMAS is a dynamic and active mathematical sciences school with an exceptional research record.

As part of SMAS the Institute for Mathematics and Its Applications (IMIA) carries out world-class research across a broad spectrum of areas in both pure and applied mathematics through its six research centres including the Centre for Nonlinear PDEs. In the Centre for Nonlinear PDEs, the research foci are on nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), especially those related to problems in optimal transportation and convex geometry. Specialisations within our centre include Monge-Ampere type equations; geometric evolution equations; analysis in free boundary problems; analysis in convex geometry; and minimal hypersurfaces.

This position will carry out teaching, research, governance, and community outreach/professional service duties consistent with a Lecturer Level B position. The successful candidate will be a member of Centre for Nonlinear PDEs and contribute to a new research project on Monge–Ampere type equations, with applications to optimal transportation and other geometric problems.

This is an excellent opportunity to join one of the most vibrant and successful schools in the country. It will also be expected that this position undertakes lecturing duties and teach students in our Mathematics degrees and in other disciplines.
