The Opportunity

This position requires experience in hyperbolic partial differential equations. Familiarity with any of the following is desirable: mathematical relativity, differential geometry, continuum mechanics and fluid dynamics.  The appointee will conduct research at the School of Mathematical Sciences, under the guidance of Associate Professor Todd Oliynyk. The research will cover topics related to an Australian Research Council Discovery Project on the mathematical analysis of gravitating relativistic material bodies. 

To be considered you will have a PhD in mathematics or a closely related discipline, research experience in hyperbolic differential equations, proven ability to perform independent research, and the potential to publish in high quality journals.

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