This job also involves:
Mainly indoor work
Workers performing these jobs would usually be expected to spend more than
three-quarters of their day indoors, in an office, factory or other enclosed
area protected from the weather.
Reading or writing
These jobs require moderate or better reading and writing skills. Workers may
be expected to prepare, understand or act on written materials, such as
letters or reports. People may wish to avoid these jobs if their reading or
writing English skills are limited to a small range of words or phrases and
symbols. Jobs remaining may still require very basic reading or writing
Sitting for long periods
The main duties and tasks involved in these jobs are usually performed sitting
down at a desk, counter, workbench or other location for periods of at least
two hours at a stretch.
This occupation offers jobs at the following skill levels:
Jobs in this group usually require completion of a recognised Bachelor Degree,
or extensive relevant experience. Some jobs also require post-graduate study,
such as a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or Master Degree.
At school, you can study these subject(s) to get a good foundation for this

Duties and tasks of a Mathematician
Mathematicians may perform the following tasks:
- apply geometry and calculus to design objects in fields such as architecture, computer graphics and robotics
- analyse statistics to find predictive models for traffic flow, insurance risks, consumer research, market analysis and clinical trials
- develop predictive models for financial markets and products for financial risk management
- simulate processes in chemical, mining or agricultural industries by translating them into mathematical models
- develop computer modelling for industrial design
- develop and improve mathematical models to describe natural phenomena such as soil erosion, the weather and climate, ocean currents or biological behaviour
- develop computer programmes for use in mathematical modelling and problem-solving
- design computer programmes to make and break complex security codes, or investigate and develop schemes for information security
- carry out network analysis for the study of road systems, airline routes, transport and communication systems
- use linear programming for urban, regional and transport planning
- engage in image and signal processing for astronomy, cartography and medical and radar imaging
- analyse problems for the service, engineering or manufacturing sectors
- develop communications technology and information theory
- develop new mathematical structures, ranging across the areas of pure and applied mathematics, statistics, computing, operations research, commerce and industry
- teach mathematics at school, VET and university level in Australia or overseas.
A mathematical modeller constructs mathematical models (often via computer
technology) to simulate real phenomena across a wide range of applications,
including meteorology, geography and finance.
A mathematical analyst analyses data and assesses risks within the finance and
insurance industries, as well as market research, biosecurity and genetics.
A scientific programmer develops algorithms and computer programmes for use in
mathematical modelling, data analysis and problem-solving in fields such as
industrial design, climate science and geoscience.
An applied mathematician formulates and studies mathematical models of
environmental, physical and social systems in order to understand and, where
possible, optimise those systems.
A pure mathematician develops new mathematical structures and new approaches
to solving existing problems, in order to further mathematical knowledge.
