Subject: Call for Nominations, Vasil A. Popov Prize, Due January 31, 2023

The Vasil A. Popov Prize was established in memory of the late
Professor Vasil A. Popov (1942-1990) of Bulgaria in recognition of his
contributions to approximation theory and related areas of
mathematics. The prize was created in 1995 through donations from his
colleagues and admirers, and is awarded every three years to an
outstanding young approximation theorist with at most 6 years of
professional experience beyond the terminal degree.

The Tenth Vasil A. Popov Prize will be awarded at the Foundation of
Computational Mathematics international conference, to be held June
12-21, 2023 in Paris, France. Eligibility for this Prize is restricted
to mathematicians who did not have their terminal degree on January
31, 2017. We strongly encourage you to submit letters of nomination
for any eligible candidate you feel has made outstanding contributions
in fields related to Vasil Popov's work. Letters of support of the
candidates are also welcome. The deadline for the call is January 31,

For more details or to view the Call for Nominations, please visit:

The Vasil A. Popov Prize is good for mathematics ! It brings
recognition to an important area of mathematical research, bridging
theory and applications, and encourages young talented mathematicians
engaging into this area. On behalf of the Popov Prize Selection
Committee, I am asking for your help. The Prize is maintained solely
through generous contributions from colleagues and friends. Please
consider making a donation today to the Popov Foundation. 100% of your
generous contribution directly supports the Vasil A. Popov Prize. Our
goal is to raise 4000 Euro so that we may continue to recognize and
promote outstanding mathematicians with this award. For more

Subject: Postdoc Position, Mathematical Biology, France

We would like to advertise postdoc positions (2 years) that we have
available at Institut Pasteur (Paris, France) and CentraleSupelec
(Saclay, France) in the context of a starting collaborative project
between Inria and Institut Pasteur. The focus of the project is on
coupling models of stochastic biochemical processes inside single
cells (continuous-time Markov chains or stochastic differential
equations) to population-level processes. The objective is then to
develop methods for model identification and optimal control to
understand and regulate the dynamics of microbial populations and
consortia emerging from synthetically engineered gene networks in
yeast cells that we are studying in our experimental biology
laboratory at Pasteur.

Candidates should have a PhD in a theoretical field, such as
mathematics, physics, computer science, control engineering or
similar, and be capable of using methods from these fields to study
dynamical systems and stochastic processes in applications. Experience
with either continuous- time Markov chains, stochastic differential
equations, stochastic chemical kinetics or alternatively partial
differential equations and numerical analysis is a plus. Specific
expertise in biology is not required but candidates are expected to
build up an understanding of our concrete applications throughout the
course of the project. Candidates who expect to finish their
PhD-studies in the near future are also encouraged to apply.
