Research Fellow In Geometric Topology
The University of Melbourne
School of Mathematics and StatisticsClosing date: 9th December 2019
Work type: Full-time, fixed-term position for 2 years
Division/Faculty: Faculty of Science
Salary: $72,083 - $97,812 (Level A) + 9.5% superannuation
This postdoctoral position is associated with the ARC Discovery Project "classical and quantum invariants of low- dimensional manifolds" with Chief investigators Associate Professor Craig Hodgson and Professor Hyam Rubinstein.
The successful applicant will participate in all aspects of the project, including the presentation of research results at seminars and conferences, and will, as part of the research team, write scholarly papers for publication in academic journals. The ideal candidate will bring in expertise in geometric topology, hyperbolic geometry and quantum topology, complementing that of Hodgson and Rubinstein.
The research project aims to relate quantum invariants arising from physics, including the Jones polynomial and the 3D-index, to classical topology and geometry, including surfaces in 3-manifolds and Thurston's hyperbolic structures on 3-manifolds.
To be considered for this position you will have a PhD in mathematics by the date of commencement. You will also have a demonstrated aptitude for research with a sound publication record in relevant areas commensurate with experience and opportunities.
