CAIMS/PIMS Early Career Award

The CAIMS-PIMS Early career prize is to be awarded to a researcher less than ten years past the date of Ph.D. at the time of nomination (e.g. 2007 or later for 2017 prize). The prize recognizes exceptional research in any branch of applied mathematics, interpreted broadly. The nominee's research should have been conducted primarily in Canada or in affiliation with a Canadian university.

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 recipient will be invited to deliver a plenary lecture at the CAIMS Annual Meeting in the year of the award. A travel allowance will be provided.

Nominations 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.

Open Dates: 
Thursday, December 1, 2016 - 16:30 to Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - 23:45
