PIMS Postdoctoral Fellowships 2015 - 2016


Call for Nominations

 

The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) invites nominations of outstanding young researchers in the mathematical sciences for Postdoctoral Fellowships for the year 2015-2016. Candidates must be nominated by at least one scientist or by a Department (or Departments) affiliated with PIMS. The fellowships are intended to supplement support provided by the sponsor, and are tenable at any of its Canadian member universities: the University of Alberta, the University of British Columbia, the University of Calgary, the University of Lethbridge, the University of Regina, the University of Saskatchewan, Simon Fraser University, and the University of Victoria, as well as at the PIMS affiliate the University of Northern British Columbia.

For the 2015-2016 competition, held in January of 2015, the amount of the award will be $20,000 and the sponsor(s) is (are) required to provide additional funds to finance a minimum total stipend of $40,000.

Rankings of candidates are made by the PIMS PDF Review Panel based on the qualifications of the candidate, potential for participation in PIMS programs, and potential involvement with PIMS partners. PIMS Postdoctoral Fellows will be expected to participate in all PIMS activities related to the fellow's area of expertise and will be encouraged to spend time at more than one site. To ensure that PIMS Postdoctoral Fellows are able to participate fully in Institute activities, they may not teach more than two single-term courses per year.

Nominees must have a Ph.D. or equivalent (or expect to receive a Ph.D.) by December 31, 2015 and be within three years of their Ph.D. at the time of the nomination (i.e., the candidate must have received her or his Ph.D. on or after January 1, 2012). The fellowship may be taken up at any time between September 1, 2015 and January 1, 2016. The fellowship is for one year and is renewable for at most one additional year.


The deadline for complete nominations/applications is DECEMBER 1.

PIMS / CNRS Call for Applications 2015 - 2016


The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) are calling for applications from French researchers to spend the academic year 2015-16 at one of PIMS' member universities and to participate in PIMS' research activities. The applicants should be "fonctionnaires titulaires" either at the CNRS or at a French university, and priority will be given to junior researchers "charg(e)es de recherches" or "maitres de conferences").

Applications should be sent to Sinnou David, Directeur adjoint scientifique, INSMI (CNRS), and to Alejandro Adem, Director of PIMS, by December 19, 2014. They should include a CV and a list of publications, together with a description of the research project to be done during the academic year, and the names of the PIMS researchers which would be involved in the project. Results will be announced by the spring of 2015.

For French colleagues posted in a laboratory managed by an institute of CNRS other than INSMI, the application should also be sent to the relevant Institute. In particular, those working in a INS2I laboratory should copy Anne Doucet at Email: anne.doucet@lip6.fr

In the case of university faculty, once the application has been accepted, the actual appointment is subject to the person receiving a "delegation au CNRS"  from his/her home institution.

Successful applicants will be sent for one year by the CNRS to the PIMS university where the research is to be carried out, on the understanding that they will be given adequate working conditions, and be treated like local faculty (except for teaching). We encourage researchers at PIMS universities to contact their French counterparts and encourage them to apply. The extent of local support will be a crucial factor in judging the applications.
