Postdoctoral Fellowships in Applied Analysis

The ICTI program in Applied Mathematics offers postdoctoral training in Applied Analysis, which provides opportunities for research experiences, including interdisciplinary research in connection with other departments and programs, participation in international research programs and networks, active engagement in scientific life of the hosting center or institution, which includes participation in working groups, weekly organized seminars, and other activities.

Postdoctoral training will be conducted at CMU during the first year and at the Mathematics Departments of three Portuguese institutions: Faculdade de Ciências / Universidade de Lisboa, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia / Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Instituto Superior Técnico / Universidade Técnica de Lisboa during the second (and possibly third) year.

It is expected that at the end of the postdoctoral experience, each postdoctoral fellow will have a well-defined independent research program, well-developed communication skills, a broad perspective of his or her field, the know-how to seek individual grant support, and the ability to mentor.

In the initial period and until they choose mentors, postdoctoral fellows will be guided by a pre-assigned CMU/Portuguese pair of Pro Tem (temporary) mentors.

During their stay at CMU, Postdoctoral Fellows in Applied Analysis are expected to participate in the activities of the Center for Nonlinear Analysis, which include:

  • Weekly Seminars,
  • Graduate and Postdoctoral Advanced Topics Courses: There will be at least 3 courses offered in each academic year.
  • Working Groups: There are several working groups involving faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. Each semester a few themes are identified and the participants present relevant articles and research.
  • Workshops and Conferences: Every year the CNA organizes either a summer school and a small focused workshop, or a conference.

In addition, postdoctoral fellows will be encouraged and (partially) funded to participate in workshops, conferences, and summer schools in the US and abroad.

Postdoctoral fellows will be required to complete an annual report detailing their research and educational activities.

During their stay in Portugal, Postdoctoral Fellows in Applied Analysis are expected to participate in the activities of the Centro de Análise Matemática Geometria e Sistemas Dinâmicos CAMGSD, Centro de Matemática e Aplicações Fundamentais CMAF, Grupo de Física Matemática GFM, Centro de Matemática e Aplicações CEMAT or Centro de Matemática e Aplicações CMA, which include weekly seminars, workshops and conferences.

They should also participate in the Program seminar which will be organized. In addition, the postdoctoral fellows will be encouraged and (partially) funded to participate in workshops, conferences and summer schools in the European Union and abroad.

Postdoctoral fellows will be required to complete an annual report detailing their research activities.
