Job Description: 

An exciting opportunity exists to conduct research in discrete mathematics with applications to algorithm testing and software design for transport networks.

The School of Mathematics and Physics
The discipline of Mathematics is located within the School of Mathematics and Physics in the Faculty of Science at the University of Queensland. It is the leading provider of mathematics education in Queensland, and is internationally recognised for its research excellence.
The role
The successful appointee will carry out high level research on an Australian Research Council funded project led by Dr Barbara Maenhaut (The University of Queensland). The project involves collaboration with industry partner Jeppesen Rail Logistics and Terminals in research on the development of time-dependent networks for use in algorithm testing and software design.
The person
Applicants should possess at least a research Masters degree, and preferably a PhD, in mathematics or computing, and have the necessary skills and background to carry out original research in applied discrete mathematics. The successful appointee will work in collaboration with Dr Barbara Maenhaut and staff at Jeppesen Rail Logistics and Terminals to identify particular configurations in existing public transportation networks that cause difficulties for existing models and algorithms, and then develop tools to create virtual networks that contain specified configurations.
Remuneration
This is a full-time, one year fixed term appointment with the possibility for extension at Research Academic level A. The remuneration package will be in the range: $57,330 – $77,764 p.a., plus employer superannuation contributions of up to 17% (total package will be in the range $67,076 – $90,983 p.a.).
