Postdoctoral Fellow in
Smooth Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems
Faculty of Science
School of Mathematics and Statistics
At UNSW, we pride ourselves on being a workplace where the best people come to do their best work.
Applications are sought for a Postdoctoral Fellow position in Smooth Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems in UNSW Australia’s School of Mathematics and Statistics.
About the role
This position is funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery Project Grant. The successful applicant will play a leading role within a collaborative research team led by Professor Gary Froyland including researchers from:
The core of this project is the development of an ergodic-theoretic framework for non-autonomous or driven dynamical systems, focusing on differentiable and measurable analysis methods for time-dependent systems on finite and infinite time horizons. These new techniques will ultimately be implemented and applied to dynamical systems models of the ocean and atmosphere.
Although experience in both smooth ergodic theory and dynamical systems is preferred, all candidates with strong qualifications in dynamical systems and related fields of research are encouraged to apply and will be carefully considered.
Applicants should have a PhD degree or be close to completing one.
In collaboration with the research team members, it is expected that the Postdoctoral Fellow will publish in leading international journals.
An applicant may be required to undergo pre-employment checks prior to appointment to this role.
Applicants should systematically address the selection criteria in their application.
