The Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work within a new collaborative initiative on "Non-Smooth Geometry, Spectral Theory, and Data: Learning and Representing Projections of Complex Systems' funded by the National Science Foundation. The position will be supervised by Dimitris Giannakis, and will involve collaboration with Tyrus Berry (George Mason University) and John Harlim (Pennsylvania State University).
The focus of the project is the development of mathematical and computational techniques for statistical modeling of dynamical systems, combining aspects of geometrical machine learning, operator theory, and data science. Applicants possessing a background in applied mathematics, with an emphasis on dynamical systems, statistics, and machine learning, are currently being sought for a position nominally starting in September 2020.
The postdoc positions come with no teaching requirement, although teaching is available as an option. The initial appointment will be for two years, with the possibility of an extension depending on performance and funding.
Applications submitted before January 15, 2019 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until the positions are filled.
