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, 2022 and carry a salary of up to $85,000 annually.

During the 2022-23 academic year, IPAM will host two long programs: Computational Microscopy and New Mathematics for the Exascale: Applications to Materials Science.  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 2017 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/JPF07106. Applications should include a CV, a research statement addressing 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, 2022. Questions about the position/application may be sent to ipam@ucla.edu.

 

More Information about IPAM:

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.
