Tianyuan Mathematical Fund, administrated by the Natural Science Foundation of China, was founded to advance mathematics in China to the internationally competitive level.
Supported by the Tianyuan Mathematical Fund, the National Tianyuan Mathematical Center in Northeastern China (TMCNE) is managed by Jilin University, with the participation of other universities in the northeast region of China, including Northeast Normal University, Harbin Institute of Technology, and Dalian University of Science and Technology.
The mission of the center is to serve as a platform for mathematicians from China and around the world to collaborate on cutting edge mathematical research, especially in computational mathematics and related interdisciplinary areas, and to serve as a station for training and developing China’s next generation of high caliber mathematicians.
As a partial fulfillment of the center’s mission, TMCNE is seeking 4-6 qualified individuals as inaugural Tianyuan postdoctoral associates.
To qualify for the position, the applicant’s receipt of the PhD degree should be within the last three years, and the applicant's age should not exceed 35.
Preference will be given to candidates whose research areas are in computational mathematics, applied mathematics as related to partial differential equations and dynamical systems, probability, and statistics.
Tianyuan postdoctoral associates will be supervised jointly by members of the TMCNE Academic Committee (see the appendix for the complete list of the committee members) and local faculty members.
The appointment is for two years. TMCNE will strive to create a stimulating work environment and reward system for Tianyuan postdoctoral associates.
For compensation, TMCNE will provide each Tianyuan postdoctoral associate an annual salary ranging from RMB 200k to 350k, depending on academic preparation and qualification, and full employee benefits.
In addition, each Tianyuan postdoctoral associate will receive a RMB 50k startup fund. Jilin University will assist the postdoctoral associates with arranging postdoc apartments 80 square meters and furnished ).
At the end of the second year of residence, Tianyuan postdoctoral associates have the opportunity to convert their position to tenure track faculty at Jilin University.
