Research Training Group Stochastic Analysis & Applications at Princeton University

Fellowship Opportunities

Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE) invites applications for a for two one-year postdoctoral appointments, renewable for up to three years, one starting February 1, 2010, and the second starting July 1, 2010. The positions are funded jointly by Princeton University and an NSF Research Training Grant (RTG) on Stochastic Analysis and Applications. The research areas covered by the RTG include dynamical queuing systems, risk management and risk measures, emissions markets and environmental finance, stochastic differential games, stochastic partial differential equations and market models, credit risk, and other applications of financial mathematics.

To be successful, a candidate must show demonstrable excellence in research, and must also have strong commitment to excellence in teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The department is in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and is strongly involved in the activities of the Bendheim Center for Finance and the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics.

Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations.

NSF requires RTG fellowship recipients to be US citizens or permanent residents.

Applications must be submitted online through the Mathjobs site. All applications must include the following: (1) a curriculum vita, (2) a personal statement addressing their research agenda, (3) a statement of teaching philosophy and (4) a completed AMS Standard Cover Sheet form. At least three letters of recommendation are also to be submitted at this site. For information about how to self identify, please please click here.

The application pool will remain open until the positions are filled, but screening will begin on 1 November, 2009 for the February position, and on 15 January, 2010 for the July position.

Ph.D. Fellowships

Applications are invited for doctoral fellowships. These fellowships are jointly funded by the NSF RTG award and Princeton University. Applications are welcome from applicants with undergraduate degrees with a strong mathematical component. Research areas include Financial Mathematics, Queuing Theory, Stochastic Differential Games, Risk Measurement and Analysis, as well as other topics described on these webpages.

Interested applicants should apply to the Princeton University Graduate School Online Application System for admission to the ORFE Ph.D. program.

NSF requires RTG fellowship recipients to be US citizens or permanent residents. International applicants interested in RTG activities are strongly encouraged to apply to the ORFE Ph.D. program, and will be considered for other sources of funding.
