The School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University invites applications for a Research Fellow to join a highly motivated team of researchers at the Clayton Campus in Melbourne, Australia. The position is a two year fixed-term appointment with an annual salary range of $81,486 – $87,471(plus 9.5% employer superannuation) and a flexible start date.

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 expertise in hyperbolic differential equations, proven ability to perform independent research, and the potential to publish in high quality journals. Applicants who expect to submit their thesis within the first half of 2017 will also be considered.

Applications must be submitted online and address the selection criteria outlined in the position description.
