We are offering an opportunity for an academic appointment in Mathematics at the Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level. The U.S. equivalent level of appointment is Assistant Professor (Lecturer) and Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer).
We welcome applications from candidates with research expertise in any area of Mathematics. Research areas of current Mathematics staff include harmonic analysis, fractional calculus with applications, functional analysis, graph theory, mathematical biology, mathematical physics, polar-marine physics, ring theory and stochastic PDE. Preference may be given to applicants with research interests in areas that are already represented or that suitably complement those that are.
The University of Otago is one of New Zealand's most research-intensive universities. The University values research and research-informed teaching, and teaching assignments and loads are structured accordingly. The University is located in the vibrant southern city of Dunedin, gateway to the beautiful Otago region of New Zealand. We encourage academics to establish and maintain international research connections, and we support this with generous research and study leave.
