Fellowship Description:    

*** the list date or deadline for this fellowship has passed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

Applications are invited for Fields Postdoctoral Fellowship positions with the Thematic Program on Geometric Constraint Systems, Framework Rigidity, and Distance Geometry (the "Program") taking place at the Fields Institute from January 1 to June 30, 2021. More information on the program will be posted here as it becomes available: http://www.fields.utoronto.ca/activities/20-21/constraint.

The fellowships provide for a period of engagement in research and participation in the activities of the Institute. Candidates are encouraged to interpret the subject areas of the program broadly. Fellowships may be offered in conjunction with partner universities, through which a further period of support may be possible. Please list the name(s) of faculty members at Fields Institute Principal Sponsoring Universities (PSUs), who you believe are appropriate on your cover sheet. You are encouraged to apply directly to these other institutions as well. PhD students are encouraged to include expected completion dates in their cover letter.

One of the Fields Postdoctoral Fellows associated with the Program may be awarded the prestigious Jerrold E. Marsden Postdoctoral Fellowship. This fellowship pays an enhanced stipend and provides for a six-month period at Fields for research and participation in the activities of the Program.

There may also be a number of two-year positions available connected to the Fields-Ontario Postdoctoral Fellowship (FOPDF). These fellowships involve a semester at Fields and three semesters at one of Fields PSUs. To apply for the FOPDF, please indicate your interest on the cover sheet and include the names of faculty members at Fields PSUs who may be appropriate as supervisors. Eligibility: Qualified candidates who will have a recent PhD in the area of the Program or a related area of the mathematical sciences are encouraged to apply. Fellowship positions are conditional on funding for the Program.

Deadline to apply is March 31, 2020. Late applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
