Math Postdoctoral Opportunities

16/11/2017 - Trieste, Italy

Every year, ICTP's Mathematics section offers research opportunities for outstanding mathematicians from developing countries, including postdoctorates. The section is now accepting applications for its Postdoctoral Fellowships; the deadline is **7 January 2018**.

Postdoctoral Fellowships are intended for young mathematicians with a strong research record. Fellows must have completed a PhD in mathematics prior to the start of their fellowship. Women are particularly encouraged to apply. The fellowships have a 12-month duration with a possible extension for a further 12 months; the initial period will be 1 September 2018 - 31 August 2019. Candidates must apply using the online application.

Preference will be given to candidates who: 1) will benefit most from the time spent at ICTP in pursuit of their own research, using the ICTP facilities and participating in ICTP activities; and 2) will interact with local scientists and visitors and will contribute to the intellectual vitality of the Centre.

Candidates are required to arrange for the submission of three letters of recommendation by established researchers. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Successful candidates might be offered a Shiing-Shen Chern Senior Post-Doctoral Fellowship. The Fellowship, named after Shiing-Chern, has especially attractive terms with a total possible tenure of 3+2 years.

Postdoctoral fellows will have the opportunity to participate in an array of mathematics activities at the network of scientific institutions in Trieste: ICTP, the International School of Advanced Studies (ISAS/SISSA) and the University of Trieste.

ICTP is governed by UNESCO, IAEA, and Italy, and is a UNESCO Category 1 Institute
