Program Highlights

  • The Collaborative Research Group (CRG) is one of our flagship programs which sponsors events and personnel to tackle cutting edge research problems. New CRGs are typically awarded annually and run for a period of up to three years.
  • The PIMS Postdoctoral Program is one of PIMS largest investments. Every year, we sponsor postdoctoral fellows throughout the PIMS network. Our Postdoctoral Fellows showcase their work through Emerging Research: The PIMS Postdoctoral Fellow Seminar.
  • As part of our 25th anniversary celebrations, PIMS has launched a new network wide colloquium. This program will feature distinguished speakers from throughout the mathematical sciences and is available online.
  • PIMS has launched two successful computational platforms: Callysto + and Syzygy. These programs offer free computational resources, training future generations of mathematical scientists. The syzygy service is deployed at almost all of the leading Canadian research universities and has been used by over 36000 people.
  • PIMS maintains This platform provides access to mathematical seminars and lecture materials, including videos, notes and slides.
