    The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Victoria invites applications for the Gilbert and Betty Kennedy Chair in Mathematical Biology. The selected candidate will hold a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in the Faculty of Science.


    This is an endowed position intended for an outstanding, high-impact researcher who will, together with our existing mathematical biology group, establish a world-leading centre for research in this field. The underlying academic appointment is expected to be at the Professor level, although exceptional candidates at the Associate Professor level may be considered.


    We are particularly interested in applicants whose area of research is in mathematical ecology, evolutionary biology, regulatory networks, epidemiology and immunology; however, applications from candidates in all areas of Mathematical Biology are welcome. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2021.


    For full details and the link to apply, go to and the deadline date is January 4, 2021.

    The Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM) has published the call for PhD contracts to be performed at Severo Ochoa Excellence Research Centers. This program is devoted to attracting talented Early-Stage Researchers—of any nationality—who wish to pursue doctoral degree. It is aimed at supporting the best scientific talent and fostering innovative and high-quality research by recruiting outstanding international students and offering them an attractive and competitive environment to reach the research of excellence.

    The call offers up to 4 PhD Student positions in the following areas: 

    • Core in Applied Mathematics: Fourier Analysis, Algebraic Geometry, Discrete Mathematics, Inverse Problems, Singularity Theory, PDEs, Mathematical Physics, etc. 
    • Computational Mathematics, Modelling and Simulation: Computer Simulation, CFD, Mathematical Modelling, HPC, Numerical Analysis, Algorithm Development, etc. 
    • Applications of Mathematics: Applied Statistics, Energy, Biosciences, Advanced manufacturing, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, etc.

    The programme is open to students of any nationality. The duration of the contracts will be 4-years. This grant can also fund the doctoral course tuition fees and predoctoral mobility.


    • Experience: At the call deadline, applicants must be in the first year of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree.
    • Studies pursued: At the time of recruitment, candidates must comply with one of the following options:
      • To have completed the studies that lead to an official university degree adapted to the European Higher Education Area awarding 300 ECTS credits, of which at least 60 ECTS credits must correspond to master level.
      • To have completed a degree in a university not adapted to the European Higher Education Area that gives access to doctoral studies. The verification of an equivalent level of studies to the ones mentioned above will be made by the university when the admission procedure starts.

    Deadline for applications: 18.12.2020.
