Fellowship Description:    

*** this fellowship has been closed and new applications are no longer being accepted. ***

Applications are invited for a one-year postdoctoral position in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at McMaster University. This fellowship provides an opportunity to engage in research in close collaboration with Dr. Protas and his group (more information available at ) with a limited amount of teaching. The focus of this industry-cofunded position will be research on mathematical and computational modelling of nonequilibrium electrochemical and thermodynamic processes occurring in Li-ion batteries. This position is intended for an applied mathematician interested in exploring a rapidly developing application area, or for a mathematically-minded chemist with a solid background in theoretical and computational chemistry. In either case, knowledge of multiscale modelling (especially homogenization), electrochemistry, PDEs and scientific computing will be an asset. This research project also involves close collaboration with chemists and material scientists as well as research scientists with our Industrial Partner.

The fellowship is open to candidates of any nationality and selection will be based on the candidate's research potential and fit with Dr. Protas' research group. The fellowship starts on September 1, 2020 or earlier, and provides an annual salary of $45,000 CAD plus a $2,000 CAD research grant. Candidates are required to apply for this fellowship by using the MathJobs website. We will begin reviewing applications on June 8, 2020. Applications received after this date will be accepted until the position is filled, but to ensure full consideration applicants are advised to submit all supporting materials by the above deadline. 

Applicants should provide at least three letters of recommendation. Preferably these letters will be submitted through the MathJobs website (see above); they may also be sent directly to:
