Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor in Applied Mathematics (tenure track)
Åbo Akademi University (ÅAU) is an internationally acknowledged research university with an extensive responsibility for providing education in Swedish in Finland. With its international research community and its strong Nordic ties, Åbo Akademi University has an acclaimed and recognized position within research and education both nationally and internationally.
The faculty of Science and Engineering is opening a position as Assistant Professor, Associate Professor or Professor in Applied Mathematics within the tenure-track career system, starting on January 1st 2020 (or as agreed). The position will be placed in Åbo (Turku), Finland.
The Faculty of Science and Engineering at Åbo Akademi University offers education within Biosciences, Pharmacy, Natural Sciences, Information Technology and Chemical Engineering. The education within the subject Mathematics and Statistics offers skills that are in demand within society, especially within the insurance- and financial sector, and the IT-industry. In addition to that, the education of subject teachers in mathematics and its development is one of the most important tasks within the subject, as it has an essential responsibility to supply the Swedish speaking community in Finland with subject teachers in mathematics. The research in mathematics at Åbo Akademi University covers different parts within both abstract mathematics and applied mathematics.
The tenure track-position is placed at the subject Mathematics and Statistics, which is a part of Natural Sciences. The subject is responsible for education on basic-, subject-, and advanced studies as well as research studies and thesis supervision on all levels. The research activity within the subject is dynamic and internationally recognized. The research is focused especially on functional analysis, with applications in complex analysis and system theory, stochastic processes with applications in financial and insurance mathematics as well as number theory with applications in coding theory.
The field of activity
The field of activity is in Applied Mathematics with a special emphasis on Probability Theory, Stochastic Processes and Mathematical Statistics, with applications in Financial and Insurance Mathematics. Strong candidates in other suitable fields of Applied Mathematics are also welcome to apply.
Stability and scaling limits for Markov processes and applications (1–3 cr)
Prof Matthieu Jonckheere (U Buenos Aires)
Three lectures during 24–26 Sep 2018, every day 10:15–12:00 (Mon, Tue, Wed)
Krossi lounge (M220), 2nd floor, Otakaari 1, Aalto University
Markov processes allow to study models of almost any dynamics: population dynamics, data networks, physical systems evolutions, biological networks, etc. We will study techniques to answer stability questions including techniques allowing to link some Markov processes to simpler systems (often a deterministic dynamical system) via space-time scaling.
1) Markov processes in discrete and continuous time
2) Stationary measures, reversibility
3) Martingales for Markov processes
4) Lyapunov functions
5) Scaling limits
6) Stochastic stability
Evaluation: You may get 1 cr for active participation at the lectures, and up to 3 cr by doing a project (to be agreed with the lecturer).
Registration: You can send an email to email@example.com or just show up at the first lecture.
Aalto University, 20 Dec 2016
Stochastic Sauna is a traditional workshop that brings together researchers and students working on probability, statistics, and their applications. The workshop starts in the morning of Tue 20 Dec 2016 and ends at approximately 17.00 in the afternoon.

Joint Seminar with Vienna Graduate School on Computational Optimization headed by Professor Georg Pflug (http://vgsco.univie.ac.at/faculty-members/georg-pflug-speaker/).
Other speakers include Profs. Ahti Salo (Aalto SCI), Lasse Leskelä (Aalto SCI), Juuso Liesiö (Aalto BIZ), Stefan Geiss (University of Jyväskylä), Leena Suhl (University of Paderborn).
Time and place: Thursday 29th September 11:00-16:00 at Aalto University, Otakaari 1, Espoo. Lecture hall U5.
The seminar programme consist of
(i) presentations of the participating research groups and the organization of graduate and doctoral studies (11:00-12:00)
(ii) lunch (12:00-13:00)
(iii) talks on timely research topics in stochastic optimization and analysis, portfolio decision analysis, risk management, and logistics and production planning (13:00-16:00).
The seminar is open to all interested faculty and students, and it will be attended by some 15 student from Vienna. Participants from Finland are kindly requested to register by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 29.9.2016.
There is an open call for talks for the Statistics Day Helsinki 2016 organized at Aalto University, Feb 12 2016.
Statistics day is an informal full-day seminar, devoted (but not limited) to:
- Bayesian Statistics
- Computational statistics
- Applications and case studies
We are now calling for talks. Everyone, from students to professors, is invited to give a talk. The talks need not be fully polished congress-type presentations. The seminar will be followed by board games night.
The keynote talk is given by Pauliina Ilmonen: “But how rare is rare?”
Registration and more information at https://statsday.wordpress.com
There will be a Workshop on Stochastic Analysis and Related Topics at the University of Jyväskylä on 21–22 December 2015. Follow the link for a list of confirmed speakers and more information.
There is no participation fee. Participants are welcome to give a talk. Please announce your participation (and title of your talk) by December 11, 2015 to stefan.geiss(at)jyu.fi.
