Potential graduate students or postdocs

I am currently NOT looking for any graduate students or postdocs with anticipated start date of January 2019 or earlier. If you are planning to begin studies in September 2019 or later, read on.

If you are interested in pursuing a M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree under my supervision on a thesis topic related to my research interests, contact me by email and include the following: a brief descriptions of topics or specific research problems that interest you, an overview of any research experience you have, your curriculum vitae, your grade point average and a copy of your transcripts (in English). You might not get a reply if you do not follow the above guidelines.

You are encouraged to contact me as early as 18-24 months before your intended arrival to the UofM. Then, in case of mutual interest and agreement, we can work on a small research project which would be supervised remotely (for 6-12 months). If we are both satisfied with the outcome/workflow of that project, you would be able to apply formally in timely manner for graduate studies at the UofM.

Please visit the Graduate Studies section of the Department of Mathematics website for more information on application procedures and funding opportunities.

PIMS postdoctorall fellowship is described here.
