Fellowship Description:   Apply    


The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Victoria is seeking candidates for nomination for a Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) Postdoctoral Fellowship, starting July 1, 2023. The field of research is open, but priority will be given to candidates whose research area aligns with current faculty expertise. The Fellowship is for one year and is renewable, contingent on satisfactory progress, for an additional year. The position is open to recent PhDs, or to graduate students who expect to receive a PhD by December 31, 2023.

The Department has nearly 30 research faculty members covering many areas of mathematics and statistics. There are also around 70 graduate students split between PhD and Masters programs. Further information about the Department may be found at: https://www.uvic.ca/science/math-statistics/.

Applications for the position should be made before November 15th, 2022 and should include: (i) a CV; (ii) a research proposal; (iii) a cover letter naming a proposed research supervisor in the Department; (iv) three letters of reference, addressing the research potential of the applicant. Ideally one or more of these should come from outside the institution where the candidate studied/is studying for a Ph.D.

This is a two-step process: candidate(s) for this position may be contacted in November by a potential research supervisor at UVic, and be invited to make a secondary application for consideration in the PIMS annual Postdoctoral Fellowship Competition. This secondary application is only available to candidates with the pre-approved support of a UVic Faculty member.

The salary for the position will be at least $55,000 CAD annually depending on experience. Details of the PIMS post-doctoral program can be found at http://www.pims.math.ca/scientific/postdoctoral
