|Applications are invited for postdoctoral fellowship positions with the planned Program on Statistical Inference in Big Data, January to June 2015, at the Fields Institute, Toronto.
The fellowships provide for a period of engagement in research and participation in the activities of the Institute. They may be offered in conjunction with partner universities, through which a further period of support may be possible. List on the cover sheet of the application any faculty members, at universities affiliated with the Fields Institute, who you believe are appropriate. You are encouraged to apply directly to these other institutions as well. |
One of the postdoctoral fellows for the six-month program will be awarded the Institute's prestigious Jerrold E. Marsden Postdoctoral Fellowship. This pays a full stipend and provides for a six-month period at the Institute for research and participation in the activities of the thematic program with no teaching required. In addition to the stipend, a $1,000 (Cdn) research grant will be available during the tenure of the award.
Eligibility: Qualified candidates who will have a recent PhD in the area of the Program or a related area of the statistical, computational or mathematical sciences are encouraged to apply. Deadline to apply is June 1, 2014. Fellowship positions are conditional on funding for the Program. Late applications will also be accepted until the positions are filled.
