About BIMSA Beijing Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Applications (BIMSA) is a research institution co-sponsored by Beijing Municipal Government and Tsinghua University, expected to be lauched in March 2020. The establishment of BIMSA is an important part of a national plan to build the comprehensive Huairou Science Center, located in Huairou District of Beijing, in the beautiful Yanqi Lake area where APEC 2014 was hosted. The designated director of BIMSA is Professor Shing-Tung Yau, a Fields medalist of 1982. BIMSA promotes strong interactions between theoretical researches and practical applications. Presently, it has plans to build 20 research groups covering diverse fields of mathematical sciences. The “advanced cryptography and blockchain program” is one of such groups.


ABOUT THE PROGRAM The advent of blockchain popularized a revolutionary vision of next generation Internet and decentralized ecosystem. Underlying this grand vision are new technologies based on the ingenious use of cryptography. BIMSA’s advanced cryptography and blockchain program aims to focus on these areas. We intend to build a team which can combine the first-class theoretical researches with top level practical implementations, converting highly sophisticated mathematics into useful tools suitable for the industrial and society in general.


OPEN Positions 1.Distinguished Research Professor; Research Professor; Associate Research Professor; Assistant Research Professor (tenure-track); Visiting Research Professor The program has 15-20 open positions for advanced cryptography and blockchain studies. Scholars or practitioners with mathematics or computer science background are welcome to apply. Tenure-track and Tenured positions can apply for joint affiliation with Tsinghua University through Yau Mathematical Sciences Center (YMSC). The annual salary range is 0.5-3.5 million RMB, to be determined by the applicant’s qualifications. Strong promise/track record in research are required.

2.BIMSA Research Fellowship This position is suitable for new and recent PhDs, or experienced practitioners skilled in programming and IT implementations. A typical appointment for research fellow is for two-years, renewable for the third year. Typical annual salary range is 0.3-0.5 million RMB. BIMSA offers very competitive packages. Upward adjustments on individual bases is possible for applicants with special skills (such as software architecture and implementation in the relevant fields).
