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

skills.

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:

Professional Jobs

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.

## Study requirements

At school, you can study these subject(s) to get a good foundation for this

occupation:

Computing Studies

School subjects that include some aspect of COMPUTING STUDIES provide a useful

background to these jobs. In some cases a computer studies-related subject is

a pre-requisite for entry to courses that provide the training for the job.

Mathematics

School subjects that include some aspect of MATHEMATICS provide a useful

background to these jobs. In some cases a mathematics-related subject is a

pre-requisite for entry to courses that provide the training for the job.

## 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.

## Specialisations

Mathematical Modeller

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.

Mathematical Analyst

A mathematical analyst analyses data and assesses risks within the finance and

insurance industries, as well as market research, biosecurity and genetics.

Scientific Programmer

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.

Applied Mathematician

An applied mathematician formulates and studies mathematical models of

environmental, physical and social systems in order to understand and, where

possible, optimise those systems.

Pure Mathematician

A pure mathematician develops new mathematical structures and new approaches

to solving existing problems, in order to further mathematical knowledge.
