We are currently seeking to appoint four accomplished academics to the position of Lecturer or Senior Lecturer to further strengthen our research standing and to strategically grow in the areas of statistics and financial mathematics. We will be appointing two statisticians and two academics with expertise in financial mathematics or statistics. People with research interests in other areas can apply but are unlikely to be considered unless they are so outstanding that a strong case for appointing them can be made independently of the current positions.
To succeed, you will be a talented and well-qualified mathematical scientist with expertise in an area that strengthens the school’s profile and/or contributes strategically to University activities. You will need to have appropriate skills and qualifications as outlined in the position description, including a PhD in mathematics or statistics or equivalent area.
If appointed, you will be expected to undertake duties consistent with an appointment at the Lecturer / Senior Lecturer level (Level B/C) on the Australian academic scale (roughly equivalent to a tenure-track Assistant Professor / Associate Professor position in the North American system). This will include: publishing scholarly papers in international peer-reviewed journals and presenting at conferences; supervising undergraduate and postgraduate students; teaching a range of courses to undergraduate students; and applying for external funding.
Applications close 10 October 2016.
