  • Take your career in exciting, rewarding directions

Everyone needs a platform to launch a satisfying career. At Monash, we give you the space and support to take your career in all kinds of exciting new directions. You’ll have access to quality research, infrastructure and learning facilities, opportunities to collaborate internationally, as well as the grants you’ll need to publish your work. We’re a university full of energetic and enthusiastic minds, driven to challenge what’s expected, expand what we know, and learn from other inspiring, empowering thinkers.

The Opportunity

The School of Mathematics at Monash University invites applicants for the position of Research Fellow to work on a project in Scientific Computing and Numerical Analysis.

The successful candidate will work under the guidance of Professor Santiago Badia and Jérôme Droniou in the ARC-funded project “Interface-aware numerical methods for stochastic inverse problems”. The role includes the design and analysis of hybrid high-order schemes for partial differential equations with interfaces. The methods will rely on polytopal meshes obtained from adaptive tree-based unfitted meshes. The research also includes optimal and scalable parallel multilevel solvers for the discrete systems arising from hybrid approximations. The role will possibly include the combination of these tools with multilevel Monte Carlo methods and its application to stochastic inverse problems in subsurface modelling.

Applicants must have a PhD in Mathematics or a related field, with a strong background in numerical methods for partial differential equations.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer to "How to apply for Monash Jobs".

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
