The IBS Discrete Mathematics Group welcomes Prof. Heesung Shin (신희성) from Inha University, Incheon, Korea. He will visit the IBS Discrete Mathematics Group for 1 year until August 31, 2021 during his sabbatical leave from Inha University. He received his Ph.D. from KAIST under the supervision of Prof. Dongsu Kim. He was a postdoctoral researcher at CNRS and a research assistant professor at POSTECH. In 2011, he moved as an assistant professor to Inha University, where he is currently a professor.
Jinha Kim (김진하) received his Ph.D. from the Department of Mathematics at Seoul National University in 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Woong Kook. Until recently, she was a postdoctoral fellow at Technion in Israel. She is interested in combinatorics, discrete geometry, topological combinatorics, and graph theory.
The IBS Discrete Mathematics Group welcomes Prof. Jeong Ok Choi (최정옥) from GIST, Gwangju, Korea. She will visit the IBS Discrete Mathematics Group for 1 year until August 31, 2021 during her sabbatical leave from GIST. She received her Ph.D. from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Prof. Douglas West. She was a visiting assistant professor at Furman University and Trinity College. In 2011, she moved to GIST (Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology) in Gwangju, Korea as an assistant professor and she is currently an associate professor.
The IBS discrete mathematics group welcomes Dr. Rutger Campbell and Dr. Debsoumya Chakraborti, new research fellows at the IBS discrete mathematics group from August 16, 2020.
Rutger Campbell received his Ph.D. from the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo in 2020 under the supervision of Prof. Jim Geelen. He is interested in matroid theory and structural graph theory.
Tuan Tran received his Ph.D. from the Department of Mathematics at the Freie Universität Berlin in 2015 under the supervision of Prof. Tibor Szabó. Before joining the IBS, he was a lecturer at Hanoi University of Science and Technology, a postdoc at ETH Zürich, and a postdoc at Czech Academy of Sciences. He won the IBS Young Scientist Fellowship.
On July 24, 2020, Kevin Hendrey of IBS Discrete Mathematics Group was awarded 2020 Vice-Chancellor’s Commendation for Thesis Excellence from Monash University. This award is to recognize and reward outstanding doctoral and research master’s thesis excellence. Congratulations! Here is the link to the award booklet.
The IBS discrete mathematics group welcomes Yunbum Kook (국윤범). He is a visiting student from July 2020 to August 2020 and is currently an undergraduate student at KAIST.
Due to COVID-19, it was decided to postpone the following two workshops to be held in August, 2020 at IBS by the organizers of each workshop.
- 2020 IBS Workshop on Extremal and Probabilistic Combinatorics (Initially scheduled on August 24-28, 2020)
- Nonlinear Algebra in Daejeon (Initially scheduled on August 4-13, 2020)
IBS is inviting applications for Young Scientist Fellowship. The application due is May 31, 2020. To be eligible, one should be within 7 years of obtaining a Ph.D. or under the age of 40 with a Ph.D. (born no earlier than 1 January 1980).
This is a full-time research position and the appointment is for 3 years with a possible 2-year extension depending on the performance review results. (If a current IBS researcher is appointed as YSF, then the maximum duration is 3 years.)
IBS DIMAG will also have a few openings. The successful candidate will join the discrete mathematics group with his or her own separate research budget.
The IBS Discrete Mathematics Group (DIMAG) in Daejeon, Korea invites applications for several postdoctoral research fellowship positions.
DIMAG is a new research group that was established in 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.
Successful candidates for postdoctoral 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, extremal graph theory, combinatorial optimization, matroid theory, or fixed-parameter tractable algorithms.
These non-tenure-track appointments are for two or three years, and the starting salary is no less than KRW 57,000,000. The appointment is one time renewable up to 5 years in total contingent upon the outstanding performance of the researcher.
These are purely research positions and research fellows 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)
- 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 email@example.com by April 26, 2020, Sunday. Recommendations letters forwarded by an applicant will not be considered.
DIMAG encourages applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds.
