Mathematical Modelling Positions Currently Open

Research Associate/Postdoctoral Position in Mathematical Modelling 

Applications are invited for a Research Associate/Postdoctoral Position in Mathematical Modelling at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Canada.

The successful candidate will be part of the research program in applied mathematics, mathematical modelling, and computational science at Laurier, and will contribute substantially to one (or more) of the following research areas:

The above are the areas of main interest. However, all strong candidates active in related areas of nonlinear analysis and mathematical modelling will be given careful consideration. Applicants should possess a PhD degree in applied mathematics, computational science, or engineering and  have a demonstrated interest and experience in scientific computing and visualization.  Proven ability to work independently and experience in software applications and development in the context of computational methods for partial differential equations are considered to be important assets for this position.

The appointment is funded by the Canada Research Chair program as part of the continual development of interdisciplinary research in the areas of mathematical modelling at Laurier.  The position is for one year in the first instance. Current funding is sufficient to guarantee three years of support for a suitably qualified candidate if candidate skills and interest allow.  Ability to quickly adapt to new scientific environment and good personal and communication skills are assumed for this position.

The application must include the following: 

Please send your application to:  June Aleong, Administrative Assistant, MM Position A, Mathematics Department, Bricker Academic Building  534, 75 University Avenue West, Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada,   N2L 3C5. Complete applications by e-mail as well as informal inquiries are welcome (contact Professor Roderick Melnik at rmelnik@wlu.ca,  tel.: +1-519-884-1970 (ext. 3662)).
