Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Macquarie University

Department of Mathematics and Statistics

Closing date: 3rd March 2019

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is seeking to appoint an energetic and innovative mathematician who has a strong research interest and growing reputation in asymptotic analysis. The successful candidate will work on the Australian Research Council Discovery Project Grant "A new asymptotic toolbox for nonlinear discrete systems and particle chains" and will collaborate with members of Macquarie University's Department of Mathematics and Statistics to advance the scientific program.

The purpose of this grant is to develop and adapt asymptotic techniques, including exponential asymptotics, to study discrete systems such as difference and differential-difference equations. These methods will be applied to study a range of discrete physical systems including chains of interacting particles.

The successful candidate will be expected to make a vigorous contribution in the overall activities of this research project, to present research progress regularly at local and international conferences and to publish papers in well-regarded mathematical journals. Where appropriate the appointee may also be asked to assist with the mathematical supervision of PhD research students.Applications from candidates with expertise in the areas of asymptotic analysis or lattice or particle systems are particularly encouraged.
