|The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences and Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics invite applications for a one-year joint postdoctoral fellowship.
This fellowship is a unique position intended for new and recent PhDs who are African Nationals working in the areas of mathematical sciences or fundamental theoretical physics. Perimeter’s areas of strength include classical gravity, condensed matter theory, cosmology, particle physics, quantum fields and strings, quantum foundations, quantum information, and quantum gravity. The Fields Institute supports research in pure and applied mathematics, statistics, and computer science, as well as collaboration between mathematicians and those applying mathematics in areas such as engineering, the physical and biological sciences, medicine, and economics and finance. While research interests for the selected fellow may dictate either Perimeter or Fields as a home institute, they will be encouraged to spend time at both institutes.
Eligibility: Applicants should submit a covering letter, curriculum vitae, and a description of their research interests, and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent on their behalf. The covering letter should include a statement about the candidate’s interest in specific research programs at Fields or Perimeter, as well as names of faculty members at Fields, Perimeter, or Ontario universities with whom the candidate may be interested in working. Late applications will also be accepted until the positions are filled.
