Industrial Postdoctoral Fellowships
The IMA offers up to three two-year Industrial Postdoctoral Fellowships for recent Ph.D. scholars each year. These fellowships are designed to prepare the fellows for research careers in industry or those involving industrial interaction in academia. The industrial postdoc devotes half of their time to an industry project and half to their own research. Industrial postdocs receive a great deal of guidance as well as ample opportunities for collaboration with their industry mentor. These positions are funded jointly by the IMA and an industrial partner. Postdoctoral fellows are appointed for 12 months, receive an annual salary with full health care benefits, and a travel allowance.
Fellows conduct research and are given the opportunity to network and collaborate with an industry member. About half of the program’s participants go on to careers in industry or government labs, with the rest pursuing careers in academia.
Apply online for an industrial postdoc fellowship via the MathJobs.org website. The job posting includes a detailed description of the position and information on the application process, including deadline and the required application materials.
Joint IMA-CUHK (SZ) Postdoctoral Fellowship
The joint postdoctoral position is for mathematical scientists within four years of their Ph.D. degree. The position will be particularly attractive to candidates with a strong interest in and inclination for applications. Each institution will match the postdoc to a mentor with complementing scientific interests. Potential mentors at CUHK (SZ) can be found in either the Institute for Data and Decision Analytics (iDDA), or the School of Science and Engineering (SSE). At the IMA, potential mentors may be faculty in the School of Mathematics or in a related department in the College of Science and Engineering. In addition to pursuing independent research under the mentorship of senior researchers, fellows will participate in institute activities, interact with visitors, and attend professional development training sessions. The positions are two-years in length beginning on September 1, 2019 with one year spent at the IMA and one year at CUHK-SZ (the order of residency will be determined on an individual basis).

The IMA postdoctoral program provides an excellent opportunity for mathematical scientists at the early stage of their career (within four years of obtaining their Ph.D. degree) to be fully engaged with the IMA annual program theme. Postdoctoral fellows are mentored by both a faculty member at the University of Minnesota and a long-term visitor connected with the annual thematic program. These pairings represent a significant opportunity for professional collaboration. Postdoctoral fellows are appointed for 12 months, receive an annual salary with full health care benefits, and a travel allowance.
The IMA focuses on two important aspects to ensure that the postdoctoral fellows have a positive, rewarding experience during their visit. First, the institute creates a stimulating, scientific atmosphere built around the Annual Thematic Program. This offers a unique environment for the postdoc to become truly immersed in one broad field of interdisciplinary mathematics. Second, the IMA dedicates a great deal of resources to mentoring, supporting, and nurturing its postdoctoral fellows.
