2017 CAIMS/PIMS Early Career Award
The Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society and the Pacific
Institute for the Mathematical Sciences are pleased to announce the 2017
competition for the CAIMS/PIMS Early Career Award in Applied
Mathematics. The prize is to be awarded to a researcher fewer than ten
years past the date of Ph.D. as of January of the year of the award. The prize
recognizes exceptional research in any branch of applied mathematics,
interpreted broadly. The nominee should hold a tenure-track position at a
Canadian university and the research on which the award is based should have
been conducted primarily in Canada.
The award will consist of a cash prize of $1,000 and a commemorative plaque that will be presented at the CAIMS Annual Meeting. The prize recipient will be invited to deliver a plenary lecture at the CAIMS Annual Meeting in the year of the award.
Nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org, and shall consist of:
- a curriculum vitae
- a publication list
- a cover letter explaining the basis of the nomination, and
- a maximum of three additional letters of support, at least two of which should be from references who are neither former PhD/postdoc mentors nor collaborators. In the case of very interdisciplinary research, the support letters should address the nominee's contributions in both applied mathematics and the area of application.
Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
Unsuccessful nominations for candidates who continue to meet the eligibility criteria may be renominated with an updated CV and Publication list, and if desired, new letters of support.
Results will be announced in April.
