NYU Courant Institute Columbia APAM

Introduction

The NSF-funded Research and Training Group (RTG) includes 14 faculty from NYU and Columbia. The principal goal of our group is to train researchers focusing on development of algorithms for numerical problems in engineering, medicine, business, and the arts, and their implementation in scientific software.

For detailed information about faculty research and individual PhD program requirements please visit faculty Web pages and departmental Web sites for NYU Mathematics, Computer Science and Columbia Applied Physics and Mathematics Departments. RTG faculty are affiliated with a number of NYU, Columbia and multi-institutional labs and centers.

Positions available

Postdoctoral Fellowships

Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Columbia's Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, jointly funded by the NSF RTG award Numerical Mathematics for Scientific Software, NYU and Columbia University. Candidates should have received a doctorate in mathematics, Computer Science, physics, engineering or another related field, and have background both in theoretical aspects of numerical mathematics and in development of scientific software. NSF requires RTG fellowship recipients to be US citizens or permanent residents. The initial appointment is for a period of one year, renewable for up to two years.

Applicants are requested to submit current CV, research and teaching statements, and four references through www.mathjobs.org. All applicants should indicate potential supervisors among the RTG faculty, and the institution (NYU or Columbia) they would like to be their primary affiliation.

The applicants should request that all letters of recommendation are submitted on-line, if possible. Hardcopy letters should be send to RTG postdoc search, c/o Meghan Hartley, 719 Broadway, 12th floor, New York, NY 10003.

PhD Fellowships

Applications are invited for doctoral fellowships at the NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Columbia Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics, jointly funded by the NSF RTG award Numerical Mathematics for Scientific Software, NYU and Columbia Universities. Applications are welcome from applicants with undergraduate degrees in any related area, including mathematics, computer science, physics and engineering disciplines, whose research interests and background match the interests of RTG faculty.

The applications should be submitted directly to NYU's PhD programs in Mathematics and Computer Science, and Columbia's program in Applied Mathematics. Accepted PhD students will be expected to complete the requirements of the program they enroll in and as well as additional RTG requirements, detailed at the RTG PhD program Web page, http://www.cims.nyu.edu/nmrtg. While each student will have a primary host institution, the group encourages and will provide opportunities for collaboration with researchers at both universities. Participants are also expected to be involved in projects at affiliated national laboratories and major industrial research centers.

Applicants should indicate their interest in the RTG program in the application, and send a message to rtgphd at cims.nyu.edu requesting that the application be considered for RTG funding.

NSF requires RTG fellowship recipients to be US citizens or permanent residents. International applicants interested in RTG activities are strongly encouraged to apply to the participating PhD programs, and will be considered for other sources of funding.
