Postdoctoral and Visiting Membership Program
Each year the Institute is host to a large number of visiting scientists. Some are distinguished senior scientists on leave from their home institutions. Some are Courant Instructors who have half teaching and half research positions. Others are postdocs whose main duties are to assist with the Institute's many resarch projects. There are also other visitors who come with external support, typically from the National Science Foundation or a comparable foreign agency such as Canada's NSERC, Italy's CNR, or France's CNRS.
The Courant Institute Instructorships are highly competitive postdoctoral positions for recent PhDs. Candidates must have a degree in mathematics or an affiliated field. These appointments last up to three years, and carry a teaching load of one course per semester. This program and its predecessors have existed in one form or another since 1956, financed by various government agencies, industrial organizations, and private foundations.
Instructorships are due December 21st, 2012 for the following academic
year. Applications must be submitted via www.mathjobs.org
after September 15th.
Post doc positions in Applied Math/Climate Atmosphere Ocean Science at the Courant Institute
Prof. Andrew Majda has four interdisciplinary post-doctoral positions available as part of the MURI award, “Physics Constrained Stochastic-Statistical Models for extended Range Environmental Prediction”. The research topics vary widely including: 1) new Skeleton and muscle models for the MJO in the tropics and extended range forecasting; 2) new data driven methods to capture intermittency and extreme events in large data sets; 3) new Physics constrained nonlinear regression models and information barriers to prediction; 4) new reduced order models for tropical/extra-tropical interaction and short term climate change. Interested applicants should have a Ph.D in applied mathematics, physics, or climate atmosphere ocean science. There are opportunities to interact with scientists at NCAR and JPL as well as with other faculty in CAOS at the Courant Institute. The starting salary is $66,764 for twelve months with standard NYU benefits. The positions are for one year at a time but are renewable for up to three years and can begin anytime from October 1, 2012 until June 1, 2013.
Interested applicants should send C.V., two reference letters, and a short statement explaining their scientific interest in this project to:
