Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications is accepted. ***



This postdoctoral position is part of the Simons Collaboration on Wave Turbulence. This collaboration is a joint effort of several groups of leading researchers in mathematics and physics, in the US and the EU, for a systematic coordinated study of wave turbulence in a large scale project. This is an opportunity for junior researchers to join and be part of this significant research effort. The research includes many areas in pure and applied math and theoretical and experimental physics.

This is a full-time three-year position that includes a teaching portion in years two and three. The postdoctoral associate (PDA) will engage in mathematical research under the supervision of Principal Investigator Gigliola Staffilani on problems related to the research agenda of the collaboration. The PDA's duties also include participating in biannual meetings and summer schools and contributing to the overall activities of the Collaboration both at MIT and during the Collaboration's meetings and workshops. Applications must be complete by December 1, 2019 to receive full consideration. However, we will still accept new applications until December 31, 2019.

REQUIRED: Ph.D. in mathematics or physics with a research background in one or more of the following areas: harmonic analysis, PDE, probability, numerical analysis, math physics and dynamical systems. Candidates must have the ability to work independently and as part of a team, and to travel and present research results. At least two letters of recommendation addressing the research potential of the candidate and a letter containing information about the candidate's teaching experience need to be submitted.

The start date is July 1, 2020. The annual salary is $65,000 in year one and at least $84,500 in years two and three.
