|Applications are invited for postdoctoral fellowship positions for the Thematic Program on on Variational Problems in Physics, Economics and Geometry taking place at the Fields Institute, July to December 2014.
The fellowships provide for a period of engagement in research and participation in the activities of the Institute. They may be offered in conjunction with partner universities, through which a further period of support may be possible. List on the cover sheet of the application any faculty members, at universities affiliated with the Fields Institute, who you believe are appropriate. You are encouraged to apply directly to these other institutions as well.
One of the postdoctoral fellows for the six-month program will be awarded the Institute's prestigious Jerrold E. Marsden Postdoctoral Fellowship. This pays a full stipend and provides for a six-month period at the Institute for research and participation in the activities of the thematic program with no teaching required. In addition to the stipend, a $1,000 (Cdn) research grant will be available during the tenure of the award.
Eligibility: Qualified candidates who will have a recent PhD in the area of the Thematic Program or a related area of the mathematical sciences are encouraged to apply. Deadline to apply is December 15, 2013. Since the Thematic Program on Variational Problems in Physics, Economics and Geometry is in cooperation with the MSRI Program on Optimal Transport: Geometry and Dynamics, Aug. 19 to Dec. 20, 2013 some PDF decisions may be made before the application deadline. Late applications will also be accepted until the positions are filled.
