Duddingston Loch, Holyrood Park, Edinburgh, September 6, 2011Got an email with this tantalizing offer of a five year postdoctoral position in mathematics at the University of Edinburgh:

Chancellor's Fellowship (five positions) [tenure-track posts at Lecturer or Reader

Applications are invited for up to five Chancellor's Fellowship posts in
Mathematics. Each Fellowship provides a research-focused reduced-teaching position
for up to 5 years, followed immediately by a standard open-ended (ie "tenured")
lectureship or readership post.

Applicants should have research interests in any area of:

Applied and Computational Mathematics
Financial Mathematics
Mathematical Physics
Operational Research
Pure Mathematics

One of the positions will be specifically dedicated to algebra (Representation
Theory, very broadly conceived).

Applicants will have a research record of the highest calibre, exhibiting the
potential to become an international leader. We welcome candidates whose interests
may also reach out to other disciplines.

Appointment will normally be made on the Lecturer scale, £37,382 - £44,607.
Dependent on experience, and in exceptional circumstances, appointment may be to
Senior Lecturer/Reader level for which the salary scale is £47,314 - £53,233.

Here is a call for applications (postdocs and PhDs, as well as undergrads) to the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics in the beautiful Basque country (in Bilbao, Spain):

BCAM, the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (, is a Research Center whose mission is to develop high quality interdisciplinary research. With an international team of researchers, the scientific program is structured in several research areas covering various fields of Applied Mathematics. Moreover, BCAM is a host institution for several national and international research projects and also develops collaborative projects with Basque Industry.
BCAM has opened an International Call for Researchers, offering positions for Senior and Associate Researchers, Postdoctoral Fellows and PhD Students in all areas of Applied Mathematics. Specific positions are also available within the Research Project NUMERIWAVES “New Analytical and Numerical Methods in Wave Propagation”, coordinated by E. Zuazua and funded by the ERC – European Research Council.Applications must be submitted on-line. Deadline for submission: November 11th 2011

The deadline is November 11, about three weeks from now. Of course, when looking at the programme so far, it is very remotely connected with Statistics, but they do emphasize simulation. If not of the MCMC type.
