AARMS postdoctoral fellowships attract talented young mathematical scientists from around the world to pursue advanced research.   The next competition will start in Fall 2020.  We highly recommend that you read the RULES before applying.

Current postdoctoral fellows

Matthew Amy

Matthew Amy completed his doctorate in 2019 from the University of Waterloo, Canada. Beginning in November 2019 he will be working as a postdoctoral fellow at Dalhousie University with Julien Ross and Peter Selinger. His research interests include formal mathematical models of quantum computation and their application to the practical problems of quantum programming and compilation.

Marco de Cesare

Marco de Cesare is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of New Brunswick. He received his PhD in 2017 from King's College London. His main research interests are in quantum gravity, modified gravity, and cosmology.

Jonathan Gallagher

Jonathan Gallagher finished his PhD from the University of Calgary in 2018, and is now working as a postdoc with Geoff Cruttwell and Dorette Pronk at Dalhousie University.  The project they are pursuing is to use recent developments in category theory to advance the use of differential geometry in diverse settings: from machine learning and deep learning to orbifolds.

Qingzhong Huang

Dr. Qingzhong Huang received his PhD from Shanghai University in 2014. Currently he is a postdoctoral fellow at Memorial University under the supervision of Professor Deping Ye. His research interests include convex geometry, geometric analysis, and geometric functional analysis.


Suzanne Lanéry

Suzanne Lanéry received her PhD in 2015 from the University of Erlangen–Nuremberg, Germany, and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of New Brunswick. Her research interests lie in the mathematical foundations of Quantum Field Theory, especially the topics of coarse-graining, refinement and renormalization, as well as their applications to quantum gravity.

Martin Szyld

Martin Szyld completed his PhD in 2015 from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he also worked as a postdoctoral fellow with Eduardo Dubuc. Starting in February 2020 he will be at Dalhousie University working with Dorette Pronk. His main research interests are in topos theory and in higher category theory.

Daniele Turchetti

Daniele Turchetti completed his doctoral studies at the University of Versailles and the Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu. He held positions at Leiden University, the Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics, and the University of Caen. He is currently pursuing his research in arithmetic geometry at Dalhousie University and his math communication interests in the framework of AARMS outreach initiatives.

Abraham Westerbaan

Abraham Westerbaan obtained his doctorate in 2019 from the Radboud University.  His research revolves around the use of von Neumann algebras to make (categorical) models for quantum programming languages.  In his spare time he enjoys rock climbing.  He will be working with Peter Selinger at Dalhousie University from September 2020 onwards.
