  • CNA Postdoctoral PositionsThe Center for Nonlinear Analysis anticipates making Postdoctoral appointments possibly beginning September 2015 in applied analysis in the general areas of nonlinear partial differential equations, calculus of variations, and their applications. These will be three-year joint appointments by the Center and the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Recipients will teach at most two courses per year. Applicants should submit all materials electronically at www.mathjobs.org. This includes the AMS Standard Cover Sheet, a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement describing current and planned research, and three letters of recommendation. Recommenders who are unable to submit their letters electronically may mail them to the committee.

    Review of applications will begin on September 1, 2014. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.

    Carnegie Mellon University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages applications from women and minorities.

  • PIRE Postdoctoral FellowshipsApplications are invited for one postdoctoral position at the Department of Mathematical Sciences in Carnegie Mellon University, partly funded by the NSF PIRE award Science at the Triple Point Between Mathematics, Mechanics and Materials Science possibly beginning September 2015.

    The scientific scope is directed to issues in applied mathematics and mechanics, including partial differential equations, calculus of variations, and scientific computation, which arise from the materials sciences. Four principal areas are identified: Pattern formation from energy minimization, challenges in atomistic to continuum modeling and computing, prediction of hysteresis, and pattern dynamics and evolution of material microstructure.

    The appointment is for two years with one semester spent at one or more of our international partner sites: International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA, Trieste, Italy), Max Planck Institute (Leipzig, Germany), University of Antwerp (Belgium), University of Bonn (Germany), University of Oxford (United Kingdom) and University of Warwick (United Kingdom).

    Applicants should submit all materials electronically at www.mathjobs.org. This includes the AMS Standard Cover Sheet, a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement describing current and planned research, and three letters of recommendation. Recommenders who are unable to submit their letters electronically may mail them to the committee.

    Review of applications will begin on September 1, 2014. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Priority will be given to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
