General Description

The Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at Johns Hopkins University has openings for AMS Industrial Postdoctoral Fellowships. The positions are intended for mathematical scientists at an early stage of their career.  AMS Industrial Postdoctoral Fellowships are ideal for mathematical scientists who wish to pursue careers in industry or academic positions that involve industrial interactions. All industry projects will involve modeling and data analysis.

Jointly funded by industrial partners and the department, the fellowships begin July 1, 2021, and can be renewed for up to a total of two years. The postdocs will devote 50% effort to projects onsite at the partner company and 50% effort on their own research and teaching under the mentorship of a Johns Hopkins University faculty. The teaching load associated with this position is three courses over two years.  The position carries an annual salary of $65,000 and an allowance of up to $4,000 for professional travel.

  • Strong programming skills -- proficiency in one or more programming languages, familiarity with others.
  • Excellent interpersonal, presentation, and written skills.

An important part of the application is the research statement which should not only outline your research interests and goals, but should also explain why the AMS Industrial Postdoctoral Fellowship would be valuable for the candidate's interests and goals.
