Employment Type: Fixed Term, 2 years
Duration:Level B
Closing Date: 14 January 2024

We are seeking a highly-motivated Research Fellow to conduct research in statistical methodology, statistical computing, and machine learning within the initiative “Bayesian Spatio-Temporal Analysis and Statistical Computation in Very High Dimensional Problems”. The applicant will work with Distinguished Professor Noel Cressie, Professor Sumeetpal Singh, and Associate Professor Andrew Zammit-Mangion at the National Institute for Applied Statistics Research Australia (NIASRA) at the University of Wollongong, Australia, to (i) devise and implement effective Bayesian computational strategies, such as Markov Chain Monte Carlo and Sequential Monte Carlo, for high-dimensional statistical models such as Bayesian neural networks, and (ii) apply developed methodologies to recently-developed Bayesian neural network architectures.

PhD Scholarship in Mathematics @Wollongong

Location: The School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics, University of Wollongong
Employment Type: 2 x PhD scholarship (3 years)
Duration: 3-year appointment
Closing Date: 10 July 2023

Two PhD scholarships are available for applicants to work on the ARC Discovery Project “Weather, climate & geological risks: derivative pricing & risk management”. This project aims to create new mathematical models and approaches for the fair valuation and hedging of financial derivatives, tackling funding for climate change adaptation and catastrophic disaster risk management. Businesses use derivatives to strategically mitigate financial losses from adverse climate conditions and geological hazards. Expected outcomes are improved models for weather variables and hazard risk assessment; richer methodology from the fusion of mathematical techniques, data analysis and earth sciences perspectives; and quantitative solutions to pressing societal concerns.

Prospective applicants will have a solid undergraduate degree in applied mathematics or mathematical finance, with an honours or master’s degree in related areas.

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.
