Fellowship Description:

Research program title:
Compressive data-driven techniques in computational mathematics.

Reference number: 9002 

Supervisor: Simone Brugiapaglia 

Program description:

This post-doctoral research program is aimed at developing and analyzing innovative algorithms based on compressive sensing and deep learning for solving challenging problems in computational mathematics. Target problems include numerical methods for partial differential equations and high-dimensional approximation techniques in uncertainty quantification. 

The program involves interdisciplinary collaborations with researchers in the areas of computational mathematics, mathematics of data science, computational biology and engineering, at Concordia and internationally. 

Academic qualifications required:
  • PhD in Mathematics, Engineering, Computer Science, or related fields. 
  • Relevant expertise in at least one of the following areas: deep learning, compressive sensing, and computational mathematics. 
  • The candidate is also expected to have a solid theoretical and numerical background. 

Eligibility requirements:
  • Applicants must not currently hold a postdoctoral appointment at Concordia 
  • Priority will be given to postdoctoral fellows who have obtained their PhD from another university although in exceptional cases Concordia graduates may be considered 
  • Applicants must adhere to the postdoctoral fellow eligibility criteria outlined in Concordia University’s Postdoctoral Policy 

The Postdoctoral Fellow must start his/her appointment by March 1, 2022. 

Submission process
  • All documents must be submitted to Niyusha Samadi. 
  • Please include the reference number with your application 

Application checklist: 
  • One to three (1-3) page research statement demonstrating fit with the program described above. 
  • Current curriculum vitae demonstrating research excellence and a capacity for leadership in the domain (maximum 5 pages). 
  • Two letters of reference from academic supervisors or current employers to be sent via e-mail directly to Niyusha Samadi. 

The prestigious two-year Horizon Postdoctoral Fellowships are valued at $50,000 per year plus benefits and full access to Concordia’s services, including GradProSkills.
