Postdoc Positions

Postdocs in Statistics and Data Science, Applied Mathematics and related areas.

Successful applicants will be affiliated with the Department of Statistics and Data Science, the Program in Applied Mathematics, and the Institute of Quantitative Biology (QBio). They will be able to work out of the QBio wing of the brand-new Yale Science Building (YSB). QBio is a melting pot for theoreticians and experimentalists from different departments and areas.

Successful applicants will be supervised by Roy Lederman. Research opportunities are available in the mathematics of data science and machine learning, inverse problems in biology and imaging (in particular cryo-Electron Microscopy (cryo-EM)) and computational mathematics. Collaboration with additional members of the Department of Statistics and Data Science, the Program in Applied Mathematics, the Department of Mathematics and the Institute of Quantitative Biology on theory and applications which promotes interaction between programs will be encouraged.

Skills and Qualifications:

  • Originality, independence, leadership, collegiality and genuine passion for science.
  • PhD (or expected PhD) in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering (signal processing or information theory) or related area.

Candidates applying for this position should note that positions are also open for Gibbs Assistant Professors (NTT) in applied mathematics. Candidates applying for this position who may also qualify for a Gibbs Assistant Professor position are encouraged to additionally submit an application for those positions at https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs/jobs/15102 . Gibbs Assistant Professor positions include a light teaching load, allowing ample time for research. Please note that the Gibbs Assistant Professor applications are due by 12/1/2019.

Application materials (for the postdoc positions) should include:

  • Research Statement
  • 3 recommendation letters
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Publication list
  • Optional: Cover letter which may include a brief note pointing to specific work or interests related to this ad.

Research Environment

The science is the most important thing in your postdoc. You can find more information about my interests on my website, and I encourage you to look up additional faculty in your areas of interest at Yale.

We try to create an environment where you can do the best science, and enjoy doing it. Postdocs can be affiliated with the Department of Statistics and Data Science, the Program in Applied Mathematics, and the Institute of Quantitative Biology (QBio), and we encourage postdocs to explore opportunities to interact with these departments and other departments. QBio is a new institute which provides some of the opportunities for interaction. Below, you will find some additional information about some of the physical locations and opportunities in QBIO.

I tend to spend time in Statistics and Data Science and the open space of QBio. It’s a short walk along Hillhouse Avenue from one to the other. Statistics and Data Science and Mathematics are moving to the Kline Tower, right next to QBio.

QBio Labs
The interesting thing about QBio is the mixture of theory and labs (and yes, if you look closely you will see that we write on the doors too)
QBio Work
In the front: work from earlier in the week. Behind it: our common area. Behind it: dry labs. Behind them: wet labs. Above us: our patio.
