Post-Doctoral Fellowships, Simon Fraser University
Applications are solicited for several postdoctoral positions in the
School of Computing Science, Simon Fraser University. These positions are
being offered in conjunction with the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical
Sciences (PIMS) and the MITACS Networks of Centres of Excellence.
PIMS postdoc applicants are solicited in the areas of computational logic,
graph theory, combinatorics and computational geometry. Successful candidates
will be expected to participate in appropriate research activities of both
the School and PIMS. The annual stipend is $50,000 (inclusive of benefits).
MITACS postdocs/research associates are solicited in the areas of discrete
optimization, computational geometry, graph theory, operations research,
algorithms, and industrial mathematics. Successful candidates will be expected
to work on a combination of theoretical and industrial research relevant to
ongoing MITACS projects within the school. The school currently boasts two
such projects in the areas of scheduling (Project Leaders: Pavol Hell and
Lou Hafer) and facility location problems (Project Leader: Binay Bhattacharya).
The annual stipend for MITACS postdocs is $50,000 (inclusive of benefits).
Successful candidates for all postdoc positions must hold a PhD in the
relevant area at the time they take up the position and have a strong
research record. Positions are for one year with a strong possibility for
renewal for a second year subject to funding.
The School of Computing Science has 33 faculty members, and offers an expanding
graduate program with over 130 M.Sc. and Ph.D. students. The School has
state-of-the art computer equipment with excellent network support. There are
well-equipped research laboratories in areas including algorithms, artificial
