The Opportunity

A candidate is sought for the position of Postdoctoral Research Fellow on a project in combinatorics. Candidates with expertise in the fields of combinatorial design theory, set systems or hypergraph theory are particularly encouraged to apply, but experience in any aspect of combinatorics or graph theory will be considered.

The Postdoctorate Fellow will conduct research at the School of Mathematical Sciences, Monash University, under the guidance of Professor Ian Wanless and Associate Professor Daniel Horsley. This research will focus on matchings in combinatorial structures, such as parallel classes in Steiner triple systems and transversals in Latin squares. There will also be opportunities for the Postdoctorate Fellow to collaborate with others in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash and pursue their own independent research programme.

Applicants must have (or be on the verge of completing) a PhD in a relevant discipline, proven ability to perform collaborative research, and experience of publishing in high-quality journals, or the potential to publish in high-quality journals.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".
