PIMS Postdoctoral Fellowships

Call for Nominations
The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) invites 
nominations of outstanding young researchers in the mathematical 
sciences for Postdoctoral Fellowships for the year 2004-2005. 
Candidates must be nominated by one or more scientists affiliated 
with PIMS or by a Department (or Departments) affiliated with PIMS. 
The fellowships are intended to supplement support made available 
through such a sponsor. The Institute expects to support up to 20 
fellowships tenable at any of its Canadian member universities: Simon 
Fraser University, the University of Alberta, the University of 
British Columbia, the University of Calgary, and the University of 
Victoria, as well as the affiliated universities: the University of 
Northern British Columbia and the University of Lethbridge.
For the 2004-2005 competition, the amount of the award is $20,000 and 
the sponsor(s) is (are) required to provide additional funds to 
finance a minimum stipend of $40,000 (including benefits).
Award decisions are made by the PIMS PDF Review Panel based on 
excellence of the candidate, potential for participation in PIMS 
programs and potential for involvement with PIMS partners. PIMS 
Postdoctoral Fellows will be expected to participate in all PIMS 
activities related to the Fellow's area of expertise and will be 
encouraged to spend time at other sites. To ensure that PIMS 
Postdoctoral Fellows are able to participate fully in Institute 
activities, they may not teach more that one single-term course per 
Nominees must have a Ph.D. or equivalent (or expect to receive a 
Ph.D. by December 31 2004) and be within three years of their Ph.D. 
at the time of the nomination (i.e.,  the candidate must have 
received her or his Ph.D. on or after January 1, 2001). The 
fellowship may be taken up at any time between April 1, 2004 and
