Nominations for the PIMS Postdoctoral Competition Open on August 12, 2022.

  • Date: 08/11/2022


From August 12, 2022, the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) invites nominations of outstanding young researchers in the mathematical sciences for postdoctoral fellowships beginning in the academic year 2023-2024. Candidates must be nominated by a scientist or department affiliated with PIMS. These fellowships are intended to supplement the support provided by the sponsor, and are tenable at any of the PIMS Canadian member universities: the University of Alberta, the University of British Columbia, the University of Calgary, the University of Lethbridge, the University of Manitoba, the University of Regina, the University of Saskatchewan, Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria.



For the 2023 competition, the amount of the award will be $30,000 and the sponsor(s) is (are) required to provide additional funds to finance a minimum stipend of $55,000.


Award decisions are made by the PIMS PDF Review Panel based on the scientific qualifications of the candidate, demonstrated scientific leadership, the fit between the research interests of the candidate and those of the sponsor, and adequacy of matching funds. PIMS takes our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion very seriously. We strive to build an open and inclusive community. We strongly encourage people from historically underrepresented groups to apply for these positions.


Nominations for the CNRS/PIMS Postdoctoral Fellowships are through the same process. This award is targeted to applicants that are French, or who have completed their Ph.D. degree in France.


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. Nominees must have a Ph.D. or equivalent (or expect to receive a Ph.D.) by December 31, 2023. The fellowship is for one year and is renewable for at most one additional year.


Applications open from August 12, 2022 - December 1, 2022 For further information, visit
