Postdoctoral Research Fellow of Mathematical Sciences at George Mason University

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at George Mason University (GMU) located in the vibrant Washington, DC area seeks to hire a Postdoctoral Research Fellow starting in Fall 2020.

Qualifications: The candidate will be primarily working with Dr. Tyrus Berry supporting a Focused Research Group (FRG) grant from the National Science Foundation titled: "Non-smooth Geometry, Spectral Theory, and Data: Learning and Representing Projections of Complex Systems." The candidate will also collaborate (remotely and occasionally via travel) with Dr. Dimitris Giannakis at NYU and Dr. John Harlim at PSU as well as with other postdocs and graduate students working on the project. The primary goal of the postdoc position will be to advance the current state of knowledge of operator-theoretic and geometric techniques for data-driven modeling of complex dynamical systems. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in mathematics with numerical/computational experience and a background in functional analysis and either differential geometry or metric-measure spaces. An interest in applications related to partial differential equations and mathematical modeling is a plus.

The position has no teaching requirement, although light teaching options may be available if the candidate desires teaching experience. The position offers competitive compensation and support for travel and is renewable for a second year upon satisfactory performance.

Application, including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, and at least three letters of reference should be submitted electronically on Review of applications will start immediately, priority will be given to applications received by January 15, 2020 but review will continue until position is filled. George Mason University is an equal opportunity employer encouraging diversity.
