Emergent Research: The PIMS Postdoctoral Fellow Seminar

PIMS is pleased to present an ongoing lecture series featuring our Postdoctoral Fellows. Every three weeks, you will have the opportunity to connect with emerging research in the mathematical sciences from a PIMS Postdoctoral Fellow. PIMS PDFs are amongst the top young researchers in Canada, and this is an excellent opportunity to learn about them and their work.


The PIMS PDF program sponsors positions across the PIMS network each year. Outstanding young researchers are invited to apply through our mathjobs page. Applicants must be sponsored by a scientist or department affiliated with PIMS, please see the mathjobs posting for details.


These events are shared online. To participate, please see the individual events for connection details. Please also see our effective virtual events document for tips on getting the most out of PIMS online events.


All talks are 9:30 AM Pacific/ 10:30 AM Mountain / 11:30 AM Central


These seminars are recorded, and the recordings are available on mathtube.org.
