REU Spatial Models and Electoral Districting

The Spatial Models and Electoral Districting Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site is seeking applications for its 2021 Summer program. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the REU is an 8-week summer research program located in Tacoma, Washington and will take place from June 20, 2021 through August 14, 2021.

This is a paid opportunity – participants receive a $575 a week stipend, housing, and one meal a day. There is additional funding for travel available.

The Spatial Models and Electoral Districting REU offers the opportunity for a diverse set of students to work collaboratively on a topic of immense societal and political importance – electoral districting in the United States. With the 2020 census, new electoral and representational districts will be drawn across the country and this program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to engage directly at the forefront of complex research questions and public communication of results. The REU sits at the intersection of math, CS, geography, and data science, and we encourage students with background in any of these fields to apply.

NOTE: One of the projects will have a mapper component again this summer, so computational topology students would be great, but math, CS, and data science students are also encouraged to apply (along with geography, GIS, and political science students).

At this time, the REU is planning to run in person for the summer of 2021; however, we will follow public health best practices and may run remotely as needed. If run remotely, the stipend will remain the same and all additional funding will be repurposed in direct support of students both during and after the REU’s completion.

Additional information, and how to apply, can be found here: Application review begins February 14th, 2021.

Two TDA postdocs in Singapore

Postdoc Position on Topological data analysis (TDA) based machine learning at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

Two postdoc positions are available at the School of Physics and Mathematics, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore.

The annual salary will be about 60000-70000 SGD/year (dependent on previous qualifications and experience) with an additional performance bonus of up to 3 months (Income tax rate is ~4%).  The position will start at about May 2021. It will be 2 years and can be extended to 3 years. 

The research areas of the candidate should be on applied topology, computational topology, computational geometry, and machine learning. The ideal applicants should have good training on computation, algorithm design and modeling. Previous experience on molecular data analysis, chemical or biological modeling are preferred but not necessary.

For those interested, please send CV, research statement, and contact information for three references to Prof. Kelin Xia at

ATMCS+AATRN Winter Edition

We are excited to announce a week-long series of online talks, from January 11th to 16th, in collaboration with ATMCS. These talks were contributed to and accepted by ATMCS in 2020, which was cancelled/postponed due to Covid-19. We emphasize that our week-long series will not be ATMCS itself.

Each talk will last 20 minutes, and there will be two talks a day, scheduled at 11am and 11:30 am EST. Schedule information can be found here:

Thanks to Claudia Landi, and the rest of the ATMCS team, for their work in moving these talks online.

If you want to attend these talks, then please become an AATRN member by clicking on the “members” tab at Closer to the date, we will email AATRN members the information for how to join the talks on Zoom. If you have any difficulties joining or obtaining the Zoom details, then please send an email to


The AATRN co-directors, Elchanan, Henry, and Sara

Tenure Track in TDA at Valdosta State University

Valdosta State University is searching for a tenure-track assistant professor.  All are welcome to apply, although preference will be given to those applicants who may contribute to our applied programs, including data science.  Those working in topological data analysis are encouraged to apply!

Two postdocs at Oxford

Heather Harrington writes:

We are advertising two postdoc positions at Oxford’s mathematical institute to start October 2021. 
One is one year postdoc in algebraic systems biology, and I can cover some relocation costs. Closes 6 January.
The other postdoc is a two year position in topological data analysis for analysing single cell/genomic data. Closes 13 January.

TDA Postdoc at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is looking to hire one or two postdocs in computational topology. We have a growing group of TDA researchers with a number of exciting projects in the area. See the job description, requirements, and apply online here:

Topological Robotics and ML – Open Rank at Northeastern
The position is associated with a proposal for a research cluster on “Topological robotics and machine learning” that I’m spearheading. Although the language of the solicitation favors machine learning, I strongly encourage you to apply if your research touches on any of the following topics: configuration spaces, graph braid groups, topological complexity, topological data analysis, stochastic topology, linkages, etc. 

Postdoc Position at the University of Florida

Peter Bubenik is hiring a postdoc in topological data analysis. The teaching load is one 1-semester course per year. The position is funded by the NSF and the Simons Foundation for a math bio project. There will also be the opportunity to pursue theoretical work if desired. Please apply through
