Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Queensland University of Technology

School of Mathematical Sciences

Closing date: 19th October 2014

The School of Mathematical Sciences is seeking a motivated and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Research Fellow to contribute to the research undertaken in the ARC (Australian Research Council) funded Discovery Project "Asymptotics of the exponentially small" under the direction of A/Prof Scott McCue.

The successful applicant will be responsible for: analysing mathematical models for applications in fluid mechanics such as viscous fingering phenomena and Kelvin ships wave patterns; using traditional approaches in applied mathematics to provide deeper understanding of these models; developing the theory of exponential asymptotics to apply to various aspects of these problems.

Preference may be given to candidates who have a demonstrated research track record in formal asymptotics, complex variable theory, moving boundary problems and/or fluid mechanics.

This is a full-time fixed-term position for two years at Level A or B, depending on the experience of the successful applicant.

Salary is $AUD58 903 to $AUD79 926 pa (Level A); $AUD84 133 to $AUD99 918 pa (Level B).
