The Applied and Computational Mathematics Division (ACMD) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites applications for two-
year NRC postdoctoral research positions at NIST Laboratories in Gaithersburg, Maryland and Boulder, Colorado. NIST is a Federal government research laboratory specializing in measurement science.
ACMD consists of some 46 full-time professional staff, along with part-time faculty appointees and guest researchers. Staff members engage in collaborative research with scientists throughout NIST, providing expertise in applied mathematics, mathematical modeling, and computational science and engineering.
Research areas of interest include combinatorial and discrete algorithms, computational materials science, computational fluid dynamics, computational electromagnetics, computational biology, orthogonal polynomials and special functions, applied optimization and simulation, combinatorial software testing, data mining, immersive visualization, parallel and distributed algorithms, quantum information science, and statistics for quantum systems.
Candidates and their research proposals are evaluated in a competitive process managed by the National Research Council (NRC) Associateship Programs.
The current stipend is $71,128 per year; there is also a $3000 travel allowance. For further details, see http : / / www.
nist.gov / itl / math / mcsd-postdoctoral-opportunities.cfm. Application deadlines are August 1 and February 1. Appointments commence within one year of selection.
