The University plan seeks to increase the diversity of the workforce and the representation of women in areas they have been traditionally under-represented. Consistent with this, the School of Mathematics and Statistics is seeking to increase the representation of women in the academic workforce across mathematical disciplines. Pursuant to a Special Measure under Section 12 (1) of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic), the School is seeking to lift the representation of women and therefore will only consider applications from suitably qualified female candidates for these three positions.

The University of Melbourne's School of Mathematics and Statistics is one of Australia's leading mathematics and statistics schools. It has achieved this status through the high quality of its research and teaching programs. The School offers a wide range of subjects to undergraduate and postgraduate students and is involved in aspects of community life that impact on the interests of the School and the discipline.

The School is seeking to further enhance its expertise in applied mathematics, pure mathematics and statistics, and seeks to appoint suitably qualified female candidates in three full-time continuing positions:

  • 1 position in Applied Mathematics
  • 1 position in Pure Mathematics
  • 1 position in Statistics

The School maintains activity in all areas of the mathematical sciences. It has research foci in many areas of algebra, analysis, geometry and topology, number theory, continuum modelling, mathematical biology, mathematical physics, discrete mathematics, operations research mathematical and applied statistics including statistical genomics, stochastic modelling and probability theory. Applications are invited across these and, moreover, in any area of the mathematical sciences.

The successful applicants are expected to:

  • lead a vigorous research program in their relevant discipline;
  • demonstrate a strong commitment to teaching (teaching will occur within the School of Mathematics and Statistics' undergraduate and MSc programs);
  • demonstrate a strong commitment to the supervision of research students (at undergraduate, MSc and PhD levels);
  • undertake administrative tasks for the School.

The three successful candidates will be appointed at either Academic Level B, C or D, dependent upon the Selection Panel's assessment of the individual's application.

Applicants are asked to please nominate (in the cover letter) which discipline they would prefer to be aligned with (Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics or Statistics). Please note the Selection Panel may exercise its discretion to recommend a different alignment.
