Postdoctoral Fellowships Available

For period 1 September 2017 to 31 August 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.

Initial period: 1 September 2017 - August 31, 2018

The application deadline is June 25, 2017.

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.

Post-Doctoral 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.
