It's correct. It would be more natural to say: "She has 5 years of professional mathematical research experience." Of course you need to explain what this research was, in a different sentence, so here I think you could make it briefer: "She has 5 years of professional research experience."

* She has 5 years experience doing professional mathematical research, both in groups and independently. <--- No "of" betweeen "experience" and "doing". You could also say "She has 5 years experience doing professional mathematical research, both in a group setting and independently. "

The phrase "years experience" needs adjustment to account for the possessive. Consider the following two options: 1. She has five years of experience doing professional mathematical research, both in groups and independently. 2. She has five years' experience doing professional mathematical research, both in groups and independently. Also, typically numbers between one and nine are written out (although there are exceptions).
