This role is open to application by mathematicians who have a strong research interest and growing reputation in category theory or cognate fields. The successful candidate will work on the Australian Research Council Future Fellowship Grant entitled “Enriched categories: new applications in geometry and logic” and will collaborate with the project’s investigator, Richard Garner, and other members of Macquarie University’s Centre of Australian Category Theory (CoACT) to advance the scientific programme supported by this grant. The successful candidate will be expected to make a vigorous contribution in the overall activities of CoACT, to present research progress regularly at the Australian Category Seminar and to publish papers in well-regarded mathematical journals. Where appropriate the appointee may also be asked to assist with the mathematical supervision of PhD research students.
Applications close 31 March 2017.
