PIMS Board of Directors: Open call for the B.C. Mathematical Sciences Representative.

  • Date: 08/30/2023

The PIMS Board, which meets bi-annually, is currently searching for a representative in the mathematical sciences for the British Columbia region. The selected representative must be a faculty member in the mathematical sciences from any of the PIMS member universities in British Columbia (SFU, UBC, or UVictoria). Faculty members at the University of Northern British Columbia are also encouraged to apply for this position.


Mathematical sciences representatives hold voting positions on the PIMS Board, and therefore, oversee all aspects of PIMS governance. Specifically, the Board is responsible for establishing policies, defining strategic directions, monitoring operations, and implementing mechanisms for fiscal and human resources accountability. The term for this position is three years and will commence on November 1, 2023.


Applicants can nominate themselves or can be nominated by faculty in their department by submitting their CV to the PIMS Director.
