    Tibra Chair in Mathematical Sciences at University of Wollongong: Professorial Research Fellowship

    Permanent/continuing full-time appointment

    This prestigious named Professorial Research Fellowship has been created through a major philanthropic gift from the Tibra Foundation to the University of Wollongong. The shared vision of both organisations is to build an internationally recognised hub of excellence in mathematical and statistical sciences at the University.

    The Chair will establish and lead a world-leading research program in the area of computational statistics and applications, a component of UOW’s major Data and Decision Sciences Network initiative.

    The newly created Chair will also contribute to the Tibra Foundation’s mission of promoting the critical role of Maths and Stats in society and participate in the UOW Data and Decision Sciences Network.

    For the first five years, the position is fully funded by the Tibra Foundation, and will be at least 80% research, complemented by some outreach and research-relevant teaching activities. At the completion of the first five years, the position will become a continuing Professorial teaching and research position.

    The position will be based in the School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics (SMAS), and the Professorial Fellow will be a member of UOW’s high performing National Institute for Applied Statistics Research Australia (NIASRA)

    For further details please see:

    You will be prompted to respond to a selection criteria questionnaire as part of the application process. 

    For further information about this position, please contact Senior Professor Aidan Sims (Head of School) on +61 2 4221 5003 or +61 418 122 888, or at

    Gender equity in the mathematical sciences is genuinely important to us. We strongly encourage women to apply for this Chair.

    Closing date: Monday 8 February 2021
