Mathematics Postdoctoral positions at ICTP starting September 2014

Postdoctoral Fellowships for outstanding young mathematicians.

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) seeks applications for postdoctoral positions from outstanding young mathematicians of any nationality; women are particularly encouraged to apply.

Post-Doctoral 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. The Fellowships have a 12-month duration with a possibility to be renewed for a further 12 months. In addition, we anticipate a general call for a multi-year Shiing-Shen Chern Senior Post-Doctoral Fellowship starting in September 2015 to which Post-Doctoral Fellows will be able to apply for.

Preference will be given to candidates who: 1) will benefit most from the time spent at ICTP in pursuit 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 should apply using the ICTP online application system. They are required to arrange for the submission of three letters of recommendation by established researchers (instructions for submission of letters of recommendation will be provided after submission of the online application). Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Application deadline: 15 January 2014

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. Details on the life at ICTP can be found at
