Postdoctoral Programs

The Hale Postdoctoral Fellowship at Georgia Tech is central to the recent expansion of the thriving postdoctoral program in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Tech. The Hale Postdoc program was established in 2013 and is supported through generous funding from the College of Sciences at Georgia Tech. It comes with a three-year appointment as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the School and a reduced teaching load in the first year. The fellowship also includes research funding for travel and expenses.

Hale postdoctoral fellows have one or more faculty hosts or mentors, and are members of a larger postdoctoral fellowship program in the School. This program not only facilitates research exchange through connections with other faculty, postdocs, and students in the School of Mathematics, the College of Science, and broader Institute, but also provides opportunities that support professional development and excellence in teaching. 
The Hale postdoctoral fellowship is a competitive fellowship, and as part of an annual cycle we invite outstanding junior researchers in all areas of mathematics and statistics to apply. Applications are usually due in early November (please see mathjobs.org for the specific ad).
Below we list some information on recent and current Hale postdoctoral fellows.

 

There are additional postdoc training opportunities in School of Mathematics. 
Geometry and Topology at Georgia Tech is supported by Research Training Groups in Mathematical Science (RTG) from NSF. 
Southeast Center for Mathematics and Biology is an NSF-Simons Research Center for Mathematics of Complex Biological Systems. 

The general expectation for postdocs can be found at the institutional page at
