NSERC Undergrad Student Research Award (USRA) and Science Undergrad Research Award (SURA)

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics is now accepting “pre-applications” from 2nd, 3rd and 4th year Mathematics and Statistics students for the 2019-2020 NSERC competition for Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) and the 2019 Science Undergraduate Research Awards (SURA). Students submitting pre-applications will be given first priority for our quota of awards and assignment of a project supervisor should that be required.

Srivastava on Thompson Reuters list of Highly Cited Researchers

Congratulations to Professor Emeritus Hari M. Srivastava for being named once again a Thompson Reuters (Clarivate Analytics) Highly Cited Researcher for 2018. Very few researchers earn this distinction and Srivastava has been named three times, having done so previously in 2015 and 2017. A Highly Cited Researcher has published multiple highly cited papers, defined as papers ranking in the top 1% by citation, considering both year and field of publication, during the last decade.

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.
