PIMS Postdoctoral Competition - Call for Applications 2010 - 2011

  • Date: 10/15/2009

In the fall of 2009 The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) will invite nominations of outstanding young researchers in the mathematical sciences for Postdoctoral Fellowships for the year 2010-2011. Candidates must be nominated by one (or more) scientists affiliated with PIMS or by a Department (or Departments) affiliated with PIMS. The fellowships are intended to supplement support made available through such a sponsor. The Institute supports fellowships tenable at any of its Canadian member universities: Simon Fraser University, the University of Alberta, the University of British Columbia, the University of Calgary, the University of Victoria, University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan, as well as at the University of Lethbridge (a PIMS affiliate).



For the 2010-2011 competition, held early in 2010, the amount of the award will be $20,000 and the sponsor(s) is (are) required to provide additional funds to finance a minimum stipend of $40,000.



Award decisions are made by the PIMS PDF Review Panel based on the excellence of the candidate, potential for participation in PIMS programs and potential for 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 other sites. 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, 2010 and be within three years of their Ph.D. at the time of the nomination. The fellowship may be taken up at any time between September 1, 2010 and January 1, 2011. The fellowship is for one year and is renewable for at most one additional year.
