ARC Discovery Project "Symmetry and geometric partial differential equations” in collaboration with UNSW and University of Auckland

This position in the School of Mathematical Sciences is funded from the ARC Discovery Project “Symmetry and geometric partial differential equations” led by Michael Eastwood and Thomas Leistner (University of Adelaide), Jonathan Kress (UNSW) and Rod Gover (University of Auckland).  The aim of the project is to understand the symmetries of geometric differential operators by studying the symmetries of the underlying geometry using tools from conformal and parabolic geometry.

The project is located within cutting edge research areas of mathematics.  Its innovative character provides an excellent opportunity for professional development of the successful candidate. It will enable the successful candidate to collaborate with experienced researchers in differential geometry.  The Institute for Geometry and its Application at the University of Adelaide provides a world-class research environment with frequent seminars, workshops and lecture series. 

To be successful you will need:

  • PhD or an equivalent qualification in pure mathematics awarded or nearing completion.
  • Strong research potential in differential geometry.
  • Willingness to perform research in differential geometry, more specifically in the area of the ARC Discovery Project “Symmetry and geometric partial differential equations”.
  • An ability to communicate clearly and effectively in English.
  • A research record and expertise in parabolic or conformal geometry is desirable but not required.
