Ahmed Fest on Dec 6

Mark your calendars! On Thursday December 6th we will be having a day of activities to celebrate the works of Emeritus Professor Ahmed Sourour. Laurent Marcoux and Heydar Radjavi from the University of Waterloo will be giving research talks covering Sourour's scientific contributions. Sourour's former PhD student Maria Inez Cardoso Gonçalves from the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil will also be joining us. We will also have a problem-solving session in recognition of Sourour's contributions to the annual UVic Math Contest and Putnam competitions. More details about the day's event will be posted once they are finalized.

Assistant Teaching Professor

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Victoria invites applications for an Assistant Teaching Professor position, leading to a continuing position, to commence July 1, 2019, or as soon as possible after that date. Successful applicants will be welcomed into a stimulating, collegial and culturally diverse department with an outstanding record in both research and teaching, and a University community that is strongly supportive of mathematical sciences training across a wide range of disciplines.

Postdoctoral Researcher in Dynamical systems, Fluid Dynamics or other nonlinear PDEs, Convex optimization

Dr. David Goluskin seeks to hire one Postdoctoral Researcher, who will develop and apply new methods for studying nonlinear ODEs and PDEs using tools of convex optimization. These tools include sum-of-squares polynomials, semidefinite programming, and other types of conic programming; they can be used to study a wide range of dynamical properties, such as averages, extrema, and stability. Computation is essential to the research, but analytical questions can be studied also. The methods will be applied to various differential equations of scientific interest, including fluid dynamical PDEs. A PhD in mathematics or a closely related field is required by the start date. Applicants should have strong computational skills, as well as experience with one or two of the following topics: Dynamical systems Fluid dynamics or other nonlinear PDEs Convex optimization

PIMS Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Victoria is seeking candidates for nomination for a Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) Postdoctoral Fellowship, starting July 1, 2019. 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 normally 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, 2019.
