Subject: New Book, An Applied Mathematician's Apology

An Applied Mathematician's Apology
by Lloyd N. Trefethen

In 1940 G. H. Hardy published A Mathematician's Apology, a meditation
on mathematics by a leading pure mathematician. Eighty-two years
later, An Applied Mathematician's Apology is a meditation and also a
personal memoir by a philosophically inclined numerical analyst, one
who has found great joy in his work but is puzzled by its relationship
to the rest of mathematics.

Subject: Ghana Numerical Analysis Day, ONLINE, Aug 2022

Ghana Numerical Analysis invites you to its second Ghana Numerical
Analysis Day (ONLINE) from August 24-25, 2022

The goal of this workshop is to inform about research activities in
the areas of numerical analysis and applied mathematics. Students,
post-docs, faculty and scientists from Ghanaian universities and other
research institutions are invited to present their results/interests
and discuss their ideas. Apart from strengthening already established
contacts, this workshop also hopes to provide an opportunity to start
new collaborations. It will be a two-day event with contributed talks
of 20 minutes including questions and 5 minutes for Poster

There is no registration fee, however, all interested participants are
required to register.

Registration to participate via online platform and to receive the
link is open on the workshop website via

The application deadline is August 17, 2022.

Subject: Postdoc Position, Math/Applied Math, Univ of Pretoria

The Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics
( at
University of Pretoria invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow
to join the research focus area: Partial Differential Equations, their
numerical analysis and mathematical modelling.

The fellowship will be awarded to an excellent applicant who has
strong mathematical and computational skills, especially in analysis
and partial differential equations, and a good research record
especially in applications of evolution models, their numerical
methods, and optimal control. The call is open to applicants who are
in possession of a PhD degree relevant to the above research topic.

Applicants should send a cover letter (maximum one page) indicating
their personal goals and motivation for the application with an
attached degree certificate, CV and additional evidence of
achievements such as the list of publications, reports, distinctions,
awards, as well as the names and contact details of two referees.

Subject: PhD Position, e-Science for Epidemiology, Uppsala Univ, Sweden

This project will tackle the considerable challenges of computational
modeling to estimate and predict the state of an epidemic. We will do
so using data from novel monitoring techniques involving
non-traditional sources of data.

This PhD position is part of the eSSENCE-SciLifeLab graduate school in
data-intensive science and comes equipped with generous funding and
support infrastructures.

Specific requirements for the project include proficiency in
programming (e.g., Matlab or Python), as well as knowledge in one or
more of computational science, systems identification, or machine
learning. Experience and courses in applied mathematics, statistics,
and dynamical systems are also valued.

Please read more about the details of the project here:

Please apply via the online system (state project #2):

Deadline to apply is June 20.
