The successful candidate will have a strong background in applied mathematics, preferably in mathematical biology, and have an interest in applying mathematics to real-world problems.

The post is of three years duration and available immediately. Any inquiries should be addressed to Prof Mick Roberts (m.g.roberts@massey.ac.nz).
