25 – 29 Sep 2017: Jonathan M. Borwein Commemorative Conference, Newcastle

The University of Newcastle will be holding a conference to commemorate the life and work of Laureate Professor Jonathan Borwein, whose contribution to mathematics and the mathematical community has been vast, and cut short by his unexpected passing earlier this year: http://experimentalmath.info/blog/2016/08/jonathan-borwein-dies-at-65/.

The conference will be held 25-29 September 2017 at one of Jon’s favourite venues, “Noah’s on the Beach” overlooking the ocean at Newcastle. Registration will be available shortly at https://carma.newcastle.edu.au/meetings/jbcc/.

The breadth and impact of Jon’s achievements in mathematics and its advocacy are extraordinary.  These will be commemorated in five themes around which the conference will be organised:

  • Applied Analysis, Optimisation and Convex Functions, chaired by Regina Burachik
  • Education, chaired by Judy-anne Osborn and Naomi Borwein
  • Experimental Mathematics, chaired by David Bailey
  • Financial Mathematics, chaired by Qiji (Jim) Zhu
  • Number Theory, Special Functions and Pi, chaired by Richard Brent

Each theme will be opened by a keynote address by the chair or delegated key collaborator of Jon in the area, reflecting upon Jon’s work in the field and its impact. All talks are by invitation. Anyone interested in speaking should contact the chair of the relevant theme or the overall conference chair to request an invitation. While we will do our best to fit you in, the number of talks is limited and we expect interest will be high, so don’t be disappointed if we are unable to accommodate you.

A proceedings will be published by Springer, edited by Brailey Sims.

When: 25 – 29 September 2017
Where: Noah’s On The Beach, Newcastle, NSW

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Statistics or Financial Mathematics and Statistics @ University of Sydney

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.

Lecturer / Senior Lecturer / Associate Professor in Financial Mathematics @ Monash, Clayton

We have a number of positions for outstanding researchers who can apply/develop mathematics to practically relevant problems arising in quantitative finance. We are also interested in researchers who are able to promote their research to the professional sector. The School of Mathematical Sciences is multidisciplinary with very active groups in research areas that include mathematical finance, PDEs, stochastic modelling, scientific computing, optimisation and machine learning.

In particular, the school is currently expanding its reach in the area of Financial Mathematics by:

  • the recent creation of a Master of Financial Mathematics
  • developing partnerships with financial institutions
  • developing its academic research activity, particularly in the areas of stochastic control, computational finance, and systematic investment strategies.
