If you are eager to apply the mathematical skills you acquired at school to unique, challenging problems with meaningful impact, the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) will be giving an information session which should intrigue you.

Date:           Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Time:           5:30pm-6:30pm

Location:       Career Centre Seminar Room, Koffler Student Services Centre

Main Floor, 214 College Street

CSEC is hiring mathematicians with a strong research and development background to work on teams solving challenging applied problems in the fields of cryptology, data mining and computational statistics. We are especially looking for creative people who have university degrees at the undergraduate or graduate levels in a science discipline (mathematics, computer science, physics, engineering, life sciences, etc.) and have demonstrated the skills necessary to use both sophisticated mathematical techniques and state-of-the-art computers to perform innovative applied research and development. Areas of mathematical expertise which are particularly applicable include group theory, finite field theory, data mining/machine learning, linear algebra, combinatorics, number theory, probability and statistics.

All jobs are located in Ottawa and applicants must be Canadian citizens.

You can apply online at

CANADA/USA SUMMER MATHCAMP

***************************************************************************
CANADA/USA MATHCAMP is looking for graduate students as leaders for its 2012 session,

June 27 to August 8, 2012
University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA

***************************************************************************
If you know anyone who may be interested, please forward this email to them.
***************************************************************************

“Becoming a mentor at Mathcamp was the single best professional choice I made in grad school.  I say this not because it was truckloads of fun, a pleasant break from the research routine, and the start of some wonderful friendships, though it was all that and more.  The simple joy of working with amazingly bright and talented high school students each summer renewed my passion for mathematics when it sagged at the end of the academic year, and reminded me why it was worth while to keep working through all of the doubts and difficulties on the way to my thesis.

At Mathcamp, I learned to give lectures that are entertaining as well as precise and informative.  No seminar audience asks tougher questions than Mathcampers.  Once you can hold the attention and respect of twenty Mathcampers for a full hour on a sunny summer afternoon, you have nothing to fear from any seminar or colloquium audience in the country.”
–Sam Payne, Assistant Professor at Yale and former Mathcamp mentor

This summer, we invite you to:

* Be a leader in a vibrant community of talented and enthusiastic high-school students and energetic faculty.
* Teach and learn what most interests you, in an atmosphere of freedom and excitement.
* Be a friend and mentor to 110 marvelous kids.
* Be an architect of an experience that those 110 kids will cherish for years.

The goal of Canada/USA Mathcamp is to provide an environment where talented high-school students can interact with world-class mathematicians, explore advanced topics in mathematics, sharpen their problem-solving skills, and find a true intellectual peer group. The students, mostly between the ages of 15 and 18, with a few exceptions as young as 13, come from all over the United States, Canada, and the world. They are taught for the full five weeks by graduate students and professors from the continent’s top colleges and universities, and a number of researchers are invited to give guest lectures or lecture series. (Recent visitors have included prominent figures such as John Conway and Avi Wigderson, young mathematicians such as Moon Duchin and Matthew Kahle, and researchers from related fields such as Allan Adams and Rebecca Saxe.)

We are looking for graduate students in pure and applied mathematics and closely related disciplines who love (and are good at) both math and teaching, and who share our enthusiasm for mentoring bright students. The role of the graduate student mentors at Mathcamp is not a typical one: they are not only active teachers and counselors, but are the camp’s primary leaders and organizers, helping to set the tone for the entire program. There is no set curriculum: each mentor conceives and plans his or her own classes. Beyond academics, mentors help to cultivate the rich life of the camp by planning activities, setting camp policy, and serving as residential counselors — essentially running the camp.

The ideal candidate for this job must be ready to think of her- or himself as a partner, not an employee. We seek interesting and creative personalities to help bring the camp alive (and make it an exciting place to work). Mentors must be willing to take responsibility and display immediate initiative when the situation demands it; but they must also be good at communicating and working with others to achieve broader goals. Flexibility and tolerance for a certain degree of chaos are a must. Since women and minority students often face a shortage of role models in mathematics, we are especially eager to recruit mentors from these groups.

We may also be interested in hiring one mentor with experience in Olympiad-level problem solving as a problem-solving instructor. As with every mentor, this instructorship includes the opportunity to design and teach classes in topics of interest (but, for this special position, with an orientation towards problem solving when possible). Additionally, the problem-solving instructor creates and coordinates the weekly team problem-solving competition.

If you think you may be interested in being a Mathcamp mentor this summer, please contact Susan Durst (sdurst@math.rutgers.edu) for more information about the job and how to apply. If you are interested in being a problem solving instructor, please specify this in your email. Equal consideration will be given to all applications received by Tuesday, March 1, 2012.

Thanks for your interest in Mathcamp!

- Susan Durst (sdurst@math.rutgers.edu) for the Mathcamp Hiring Commmittee
