About the Mathematical Science Institute (MSI)
The Mathematical Sciences Institute is one of the leading mathematics departments in Australia. Ranked first in Australia and 31st in the world in the 2019 QS World University Rankings by subject.
The Mathematical Sciences Institute (MSI), within the College of Science, aims for research and educational outcomes of the highest quality. The Institute comprises approximately 52 academics and eight professional staff members and is located in a new modern, sustainable, award winning building with state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities. The MSI has research strengths in a broad range of areas, including algebraic geometry, representation theory, number theory, algebraic and geometric topology, non-linear partial differential equations, harmonic analysis, geometric analysis, computational mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematical physics and probability/stochastics.
The Institute offers a variety of courses and programs catering to undergraduate, Honours and postgraduate students. The ANU also offers two research-focused degrees for undergraduate mathematics students. The recently introduced Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences is expanding student numbers in the mathematics major, and the elite Bachelor of Philosophy degree attracts a significant number of the very best undergraduates. The MSI offers the most comprehensive undergraduate coursework offerings in mathematics in Australia and supports students through scholarships and prizes. The MSI currently teaches 1840 undergraduate coursework students, and there is a combined total of 91 students in the Honours, MSc, MPhil and PhD programs.
The MSI is strongly committed to improving the gender balance amongst staff and students. MSI is taking proactive action towards this goal by reserving one ongoing position for a female candidate. MSI seeks to attract and hire several female mathematicians across all areas of mathematics.

The Mathematical Sciences Institute is seeking to offer up to three continuing and/or tenure track appointments at the Academic Level B and/or Level C (which equate to the positions of Assistant/Associate Professor within the United States of America).
These positions are established for early career academics to pursue their research career in any field of mathematics, preferably in the research interests that align with one or more of the existing research programs.
The level of this appointment, Academic Level B or C, is to be determined by the appointee’s current research and teaching expertise.
Applicants are expected to have an outstanding record in research and teaching relative to the level of their application. The positions involve teaching both in the candidate’s area of specialisation and standard mathematics undergraduate courses. Successful candidates will have access to a four-year start up grant to support research, visitors and conference travel.
Joint appointments with other parts of the University are a possibility, depending on their fit with other research groups at ANU.
The Mathematical Sciences Institute sits within the ANU College of Science. To see what the Science at ANU community is like, we invite you to follow us on social media at https://www.instagram.com/scienceanu/ and https://www.facebook.com/ScienceANU/
