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.|
Current opportunities include:
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 24-month duration with a possible extension for a further period of 12 months. The starting date can be negotiated.
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; 2) will interact with local scientists and visitors and will contribute to the intellectual vitality of the Centre; and 3) are from, and working in, developing countries.
Successful candidates might be offered a Shiing-Shen Chern Senior Postdoctoral Fellowship. The Fellowship, named after Shiing-Shen Chern, has especially attractive terms with a total possible tenure of 3+2 years.
A call for Postdoctoral Fellowships with starting date of September 2021 is now open.
Candidates should apply using the ICTP online application system. They are required to arrange for the submission of three letters of recommendation by established researchers. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
The application deadline is December 10, 2020.
Fellows at the ICTP pursue their own research and participate in an array of mathematics activities at the network of scientific institutions in Trieste: ICTP, the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) and the University of Trieste. In addition to research, responsibilities of this Fellowship include tutorials to Postgraduate Diploma students, organization of seminars, and other Mathematics section academic activities.
This Fellowship comes with a tax-free monthly stipend in the range of EUR 2100 - 2300 (depending on seniority), a travel grant of EUR 2000/year, a pension contribution, additional allowances for family members, and health insurance with CIGNA Insurance Company.
