Research and Visiting Opportunities

Every year ICTP's Mathematics section offers research opportunities for outstanding mathematicians from developing countries, for short and long-term visits, as well as postdoctoral fellowships.

Visiting Fellowships are open to mathematicians of any age and nationality. They are intended for short visits to ICTP (1 to 3 months).  Visiting Fellows must have a PhD in mathematics prior to the start of their Fellowship. The current call for applications has ended; the subsequent call will be announced here.

A call for Postdoctoral Fellowships with a starting date of September 2017 is now open. The application deadline is 25 June 2017.

ICTP and the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica (INdAM) have launched a joint program of  "Research in Pairs" aimed to fund research projects in mathematics to be carried out in collaboration between mathematicians from developing countries and INdAM members either at ICTP in Trieste or in any research unit of INdAM (see the list at The current round of applications will be accepted until 15 September 2016.

Other research and education opportunities in mathematics are available through the ICTP's Postgraduate Diploma Programme as well as its Associateship Scheme.
