Postdoctoral Fellowships

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.

Goals

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.

Application Process

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-NIST Postdoctoral Fellowship

The IMA has openings for joint NIST-IMA Postdoctoral Fellowship in Analysis of Machine Learning. The position is intended for mathematical scientists at an early stage of their career. Preference will be given to those who have completed their Ph.D. within three years of the start of the appointment. Jointly funded by IMA industrial partners and National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), the fellowships begin August 29, 2022, and can be renewed for up to a total of two years. The postdocs will devote 50% effort to projects on topics of interest to NIST and 50% effort on their own research under the mentorship of a University of Minnesota faculty.
