Postdoctoral Fellowships

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 

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
