PIMS Postdoctoral Fellowship

Faculty members in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Saskatchewan are seeking candidates for nomination for a PIMS Postdoctoral Fellowship, starting September 1, 2019. 

Successful candidates will have research interests in one of the following areas, with corresponding nominating faculty member in parentheses. 

  • Graph algorithms and colourings (Duffy); 
  • number theory with a focus on automorphic forms and L-functions (Franc); 
  • combinatorial algebraic geometry or commutative algebra (Rajchgot); 
  • algebraic geometry, mirror symmetry, or integrable systems (Rayan). 

Statistics and Stochastic/Discrete Modelling: 
  • Machine learning for high-throughput data, predictive model checking and comparison for correlated data (Li); 
  • advanced statistical methodologies for errors-in-variables and missing data problems (Liu); 
  • stochastic and combinatorial modelling with statistical physics and DNA topology applications (Soteros). 

The position is for one year, and is renewable for a second year, contingent on satisfactory performance. The position is open to recent PhD graduates, or to current PhD students who expect to receive their degree by December 31, 2019. Successful candidates will be expected to teach two courses per year and to collaborate with their nominator and possibly other members of the Department. The salary for this position is 50000 CAD per year. 

The University of Saskatchewan is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a city with a diverse and thriving economic base, a vibrant arts community and a full range of leisure opportunities. The University has a reputation for excellence in teaching, research and scholarly activities and offers a wide selection of undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs to a student population of over 23,000. The University is one of Canada’s leading research intensive universities.
