IPAM Accepting Applications for Postdoctoral Scholars
Pending availability of funds, the Institute for Pure and
Applied Mathematics (IPAM) at UCLA is seeking to recruit up to three Simons Postdoctoral
Scholars (SPD) funded by the Simons Foundation.
The appointment will be for one calendar year, beginning August 1, 2021 and
carry a salary of up to $85,000 annually. In exceptional circumstances, the appointment
may be extended for a second year by mutual agreement.
During the 2021-22 academic year, IPAM will host two long
programs: Mathematical and Computational Challenges in the Era of Gravitational
Wave Astronomy and Advancing Quantum Mechanics with Mathematics and
Statistics. A successful SPD candidate
will pursue a robust program of mathematical research that connects with at
least one of these programs. SPD candidates are expected to stay in residence at
IPAM for the academic year. They will be supervised by members of the IPAM
directorate, or other UCLA faculty.
A PhD in Mathematics, Statistics or a related field received
in May 2016 or later is required. Women
and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
How to Apply:
Applications must be submitted at https://recruit.apo.ucla.edu/JPF05895 . Applications should
include a CV, a research statement addressing in particular connections with
IPAM programs, a statement on contributions to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
(EDI), and at least three letters of recommendation. All applicants should indicate
the AMS Subject Classification that most accurately represents their research
area. Applications will receive fullest consideration if received by January 1, 2021. Questions about the
position/application may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org .
IPAM is an NSF mathematics institute whose principal
objective is to encourage cross-fertilization between pure and applied
mathematics and other scientific disciplines. IPAM provides a scientific
environment where new collaborations can begin and to create active working
research groups centered on the topic of the program.
IPAM offers two long programs per year, plus several shorter
programs throughout the year. Each long program has significant participation
from math and other disciplines, or from multiple fields within mathematics,
and consists of tutorials, workshops and a culminating retreat off-campus. IPAM
also sponsors a summer undergraduate industrial research program and a one to three-week
summer school. Further information on IPAM can be found at http://www.ipam.ucla.edu .
