1. CAIMS*SCMAI Annual Meeting, proposals for mini-symposia deadline March 15, 2023

The scientific committee of the Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society (CAIMS) * Société Canadienne de Mathématiques Appliquées et Industrielles (SCMAI) Annual Meeting 2023 would like to invite you to submit minisymposia proposals for the upcoming event.

CAIMS*SCMAI 2023 is an excellent opportunity for researchers, scientists, and mathematicians to share their knowledge and exchange ideas in the field of applied and industrial mathematics.
The annual meeting covers a wide range of topics, including mathematical biology and epidemiology, computational mathematics, fluid dynamics, optimization, and machine learning, among others.
The 2023 CAIMS Annual Meeting will be held in a hybrid format, with livestreaming of talks, and both in-person and virtual poster sessions, hosted by the University of New Brunswick from June 12-15, 2023.

2. Instructor, Assistant, Associate or Full Professor of Science positions for Black scholars, Dalhousie U.

Dalhousie University plans to appoint five Black scholars to the university across multiple disciplines within the Faculty of Science.

The Faculty of Science at Dalhousie University invites applications for five career-stream appointments at the rank of Instructor, or Assistant, Associate or Full Professor. The successful candidate will contribute to one of the disciplines in the Faculty and Dalhousie’s transdisciplinary Black Studies Research Institute (BSRI) / Black and African Diaspora Studies (BAFD).
Prospective candidates should be aware of the breadth of disciplinary areas in the Faculty – Economics, Psychology and Neuroscience, Physics and Atmospheric Science, Mathematics and Statistics, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Resource and Environmental Studies, Medical Sciences, Marine Affairs, Biology and Marine Biology, Chemistry, and Oceanography.
The successful candidate will be provided with substantial start-up and longer-term resources to support their work.

Candidates are expected to hold a PhD in any disciplinary area existing in the Faculty of Science, and their scholarly work should overlap the BSRI/BAFD and a discipline in the Faculty.

A complete application includes a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, statement of teaching interests (2 pages max), statement of research interest (2 pages max), EDIA statement (1 page max) describing potential links between the applicant’s discipline and the BSRI/BAFD. Applicants should also supply the names and contact information for three referees.

Review of applications will begin April 1, 2023, and continue until the position is filled.
