Postdoctoral Fellowships: Brown University/ICERM

ICERM's 2016-2017 Postdoctoral Opportunities

The postdoctoral program at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) brings early career mathematicians to the institute in order to support and expand their research and to create lasting career collaborations and connections.


ICERM's two Postdoctoral Institute Fellowships are 9-month appointments (with the possibility of summer support), both commencing in September 2016. One will participate in the fall 2016 “Topology in Motion” semester program and remain as a researcher-in-residence during the spring 2017 semester. The other will begin as a researcher-in-residence during the fall 2016 semester and will participate in the spring 2017 "Singularities and waves in incompressible fluids" semester program. ICERM will match these two Postdoctoral Institute Fellows with faculty mentors for the entire academic year.

ICERM Postdoctoral Institute Fellows receive a nine-month stipend of $50,000 plus benefits; additional summer support may be available in 2017.


ICERM’s eight Postdoctoral Fellowships are semester-long, 4-month positions. Four positions begin in September 2016 during the “Topology in Motion” semester program. The other four start in February 2017 during the “Singularities and waves in incompressible fluids” semester program. ICERM will match each Postdoctoral Fellow with a faculty mentor for the duration of the semester program.

ICERM Postdoctoral Semester Fellows receive a four-month stipend of $25,000 plus benefits, and $750 in travel funds.
