Dear colleagues, 

Harvard has an independent postdoctoral position in widely applied mathematics, the George F. Carrier Fellowship. One of the areas of interest is computational neuroscience, details below. The application deadline for full consideration is Nov 15th, 2019.   Please encourage qualified candidates to apply.  Thank you in advance for your help.

Best wishes,



The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University seeks applicants for an endowed honorific postdoctoral position in widely applied mathematics, the George F. Carrier* Fellowship, with an expected start date of September 1, 2020.  The normal duration of the Carrier Fellow appointment is two years, with a potential extension to a third year, at an annual salary of $65,000.  In addition, Carrier Fellows receive an annual allocation of $6,000 for research and travel expenses.

We are looking for applicants interested in an opportunity for independent research that reflects the spirit of George Carrier’s approach and complements that of the current faculty in Applied Mathematics, broadly interpreted, including those in the Harvard Paulson School, the Department of Physics and elsewhere at the University. Current faculty interests are in applied mathematics in biological, earth science, engineering and physical contexts, and especially in soft materials, biophysics and neuroscience.  For more information, see http://www.seas.harvard.edu/applied-mathematics <http://www.seas.harvard.edu/applied-mathematics>
Candidates are required to have a doctorate or terminal degree in Applied Mathematics, Physics or a related area by the expected start date.

Required application documents include a cover letter, statement of research interests, a CV (including a list of publications), and names and contact information for three references. We encourage candidates to apply by November 15, 2019, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

*George Carrier (1919-2002) was the T. Jefferson Coolidge Professor of Mathematics at Harvard, and one of the pre-eminent applied mathematicians of his generation.  He had a special talent for describing complicated physical phenomena mathematically, and did so with great facility over a wide range of problems that included fluid dynamics, elasticity, combustion and natural hazards.
