Our former member, Dr. Dong Yeap Kang (강동엽), has been selected as one of the three winners of this year receiving the Sangsan Prize for Young Mathematicians (상산젊은수학자상) from the Korean Mathematical Society. This prize is for those with outstanding academic achievements in mathematics who are within 5 years of receiving their Ph.D. degree. Dr. Kang was a research student of the IBS Discrete Mathematics Group and received his Ph.D. in 2020 from KAIST under the supervision of Sang-il Oum. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Birmingham for 3 years and currently, he is a Young Scientist Fellow at the IBS Extremal Combinatorics and Probability Group. The award ceremony will be held on October 27, 2023 at the Seoul National University during the 2023 KMS Annual Meeting. Congratulations!
The IBS Discrete Mathematics Groupo welcomes Laihao Ding and Rounan Li, two long-term visitors to the IBS Extremal Combinatorics and Probability Group.
Ruonan Li is an associate professor at Northwestern Polytechnical University, China. She arrived at IBS on September 29, 2023 and will stay with us until September 28, 2024.
Laihao Ding is a lecturer at Central China Normal University. He arrived at IBS on October 5, 2023 and will stay with us for 1 year.
The IBS Discrete Mathematics Group (DIMAG, https://dimag.ibs.re.kr/) in Daejeon, Korea invites applications for three research fellowship positions.
DIMAG is a research group that was established on December 1, 2018 at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), led by Prof. Sang-il Oum. DIMAG is located at the headquarters of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in Daejeon, South Korea, a city of 1.5 million people.
Currently, DIMAG consists of researchers from various countries such as Korea, the USA, Germany, Canada, and Australia, and the work is done in English. DIMAG is co-located with the IBS Extremal Combinatorics and Probability Group (ECOPRO).
Successful candidates for research fellowship positions will be new or recent Ph.D.’s with outstanding research potential in all fields of discrete mathematics with emphasis on structural graph theory, combinatorial optimization, matroid theory, and algorithms.
These appointments are for about two years, and the starting salary is no less than KRW 59,000,000. The appointment is one-time renewable up to 5 years in total contingent upon the outstanding performance of the researcher. The expected appointment date is September 1, 2024, but it is negotiable within the same calendar year.
These are purely research positions and will have no teaching duties.
A complete application packet should include:
- AMS standard cover sheet (preferred) or cover letter (PDF format)
- Curriculum vitae including a publication list (PDF format)
- Research statement (PDF format)
- Application for the IBS & Consent to Collection and Use of Personal Information (PDF file)
- At least 3 recommendation letters
For full consideration, applicants should email items 1, 2, 3, and 4 and arrange their recommendation letters emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 3, 2023, Sunday. (Anywhere on Earth)
Recommendation letters forwarded by an applicant will not be considered.
DIMAG encourages applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds.
