Job Description:

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, invites applications for a one-year Postdoctoral Research Associate position. This is a purely research position, tied to the NSF grant DMS 2009607, "Toward criticality of the Navier-Stokes regularity problem." This nine month academic appointment begins on August 25, 2021, and is not renewable.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Mathematics or in a closely related field at the time of appointment. Applicants must present evidence of outstanding contributions to the mathematical theory of the 3D Navier-Stokes (NS) equations. An expertise in mathematical analysis of the spatial analyticity properties of solutions to the 3D NS equations in the space of bounded functions as well as in the space of the functions of bounded mean oscillations is highly desirable. An expertise in the mathematical framework for the study of possible singularity formation in the 3D NS model based on the spatial intermittency of the regions of the intense fluid activity will also be helpful. Preference will be given to candidates who have received their Ph.D. within the last three years.

Application Process: Please apply at Complete an application online by attaching a cover letter which addresses the candidate's skill set relevant to the study of possible singularity formation, or the lack thereof, in the 3D NS system. Also attach a curriculum vitae, and contact information for four references.

Application Deadline: Review of applications will begin June 6, 2021; however, the position will remain open until filled. The University will perform background checks on all new hires prior to employment. This position will also require an Education Verification (FSAKA).
