The PIMS-Math Job Forum is an annual Forum to help graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the Mathematics Department with their job searches. The session is divided in two parts: short presentations from our panel followed by a discussion.
Learn the secrets of writing an effective research statement, developing an outstanding CV, and giving a winning job talk. We will address questions like: Who do I ask for recommendation letters? What kind of jobs should I apply to? What can I do to maximize my chances of success?
A light lunch will be provided for all registrants (please see below for the registration process).
Workshop Location: *Earth Science Building Room 5104*
Time: 12:30pm - 1:45pm
There are no registration fees, however interested participants are required to RSVP so that we can plan accordingly.
**Registration for this event is closed as the room capacity has been reached**.
