The Centre for Applications in Natural Resource Mathematics (CARM) is a School Centre in the School of Mathematics and Physics at The University of Queensland. The Centre is co-funded by UQ and the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF). The Centre focuses on the development and application of mathematical and statistical theory and tools that will provide outcomes in the management of fisheries, water security, and conservation. It provides UQ students with quantitative skills critical for Australia’s future sustainability. More information can be found at http://www.smp.uq.edu.au/CARM.
The successful appointee will provide teaching and research support to CARM. In the research domain, the person will develop quantitative theory, tools and models for management of natural resources. This includes frequent publication in high-quality journals, participation in and organizing of conferences, international and interdisciplinary collaboration, and attracting competitive research funding. The appointee will also be expected to teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Natural Resource Mathematics program and other programs, where required. Other teaching duties include postgraduate supervision and curriculum development.
