The School of Mathematics and Physics

The University of Queensland is recognised nationally and internationally for its research in mathematical physics, and is the leading provider of tertiary education in Queensland. The School of Mathematics and Physics hosts several research centres and is an active partner in a number of multidisciplinary research groups both within and external to the University. Our staff are recognised internationally for their active and dynamic research programs across a wide range of areas in mathematics and physics.

The University of Queensland is one of the top three universities in Australia, measured by the quality of its comprehensive range of research fields. In addition to providing excellent potential for interdisciplinary research, the University is located in the vibrant riverfront city of Brisbane, whose sub-tropical climate, cultural diversity, and proximity to coastal regions make it an attractive environment in which to live.

The role

The successful appointee will actively contribute to an Australian Research Council funded Discovery Project in the theoretical area of integrable systems, solvable models and applications. The appointee will conduct collaborative research with the chief and partner investigators of the project, which includes developing novel mathematical techniques to resolve key questions in superintegrable systems, spin chains, and spin-boson models. Applications of the theoretical frameworks will be made to a variety of areas, including development of proposals for quantum correlations and computations.

The person

Applicants must have a strong track record in quantum integrability, exact solutions or related areas. Demonstrated capacity for research as evidenced by publications in international peer-reviewed journals. Demonstrated ability to work effectively, both independently and collaboratively as a member of a member of a research group. Expertise in algebraic structures and orthogonal polynomials is highly desirable.


This is a full-time, fixed term appointment for up to 3 years at Academic level A. The remuneration package will be in the range $83,295 - $89,285 p.a., plus employer superannuation contributions of up to 17% (total package will be in the range $97,455 - $104,463 p.a.).
