Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Number Theory, Cryptography, Computational Algebraic Geometry and Combinatorics
The Australian National University

Mathematical Sciences Institute

Closing date: 21st October 2016

The Mathematical Sciences Institute at the Australian National University is seeking to invigorate its research and teaching profile in the areas of number theory (analytic, algebraic and computational), cryptography (classical and quantum), computational algebraic geometry and/or combinatorics. We wish to fill a full-time, continuing position at the Academic Level B or Level C (which equates to the position of Associate Professor within the United States of America). The MSI is strongly committed to improving the gender balance amongst staff and students. Women are strongly encouraged to apply.

In 2018, the Mathematical Sciences Institute will be moving into a new building together with the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), an intelligence agency in the Australian Government Department of Defence, and the Research School of Computer Science (RSCS). This offers exciting possibilities to start, and expand on, interdisciplinary activities and collaborations with our colleagues in ASD and RSCS. This current position is created in part to support these activities, in particular with ASD.

You will be joining an internationally recognised leading team of academics with a focus on achieving excellence in research and teaching. The Institute comprises approximately fifty academics, within nine mathematical research programs.

Applicants are expected to have an outstanding record in research, teaching and administration relevant to the level of their application.

The position will involve teaching specialised courses in algebra and number theory and/or standard mathematics undergraduate courses, but this may be at a reduced level for several years.
