Mathematicians are employed in most departments in a variety of fields from biometrics and statistical analysis to operations research and meteorological research. In certain areas a particular combination of subjects may be necessary (e.g. mathematics and physics for meteorology) and in others a postgraduate qualification (e.g. some research positions in the New Zealand Electricity Department).
Although departments naturally take account of good level grades, they arc equally concerned with personal acceptability, as most graduates work in small sections in which a congenial environment is essential.
