The Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences are pleased to announce the 2016 competition for the CAIMS/PIMS Early Career Award in Applied Mathematics. The 2016 prize is to be awarded to a researcher with a Ph.D. degree conferred in 2006 or later. The prize recognizes exceptional research in any branch of applied mathematics, interpreted broadly. The nominee should hold a tenure-track position at a Canadian university and the research on which the award is based should have been conducted primarily in Canada.

The award will consist of a cash prize of $1,000 and a commemorative plaque that will be presented at the CAIMS Annual Meeting. The prize recipient will be invited to deliver a plenary lecture at the CAIMS Annual Meeting in the year of the award.

Nominations must be submitted by January 31, 2016 to nominations@pims.math.ca, and shall consist of:

  • a curriculum vitae
  • a publication list
  • a cover letter explaining the basis of the nomination
  • a maximum of three additional letters of support, at least two of which should be from references who are neither former PhD/postdoc mentors nor collaborators. In the case of very interdisciplinary research, the support letters should address the nominee's contributions in both applied mathematics and the area of application.

Only electronic submissions will be accepted.

Unsuccessful nominations for candidates who continue to meet the eligibility criteria may be renominated with an updated CV and publication list, and if desired, new letters of support.

Decisions will be announced in April. 

Open Dates: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2015 - 06:30 to Sunday, January 31, 2016 - 23:30
