Fellowship Description:    

*** this fellowship has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Simons Foundation has created the Simons Bridge for Postdoctoral Fellowships, to provide additional funding to institutes to support one-year postdoctoral positions in mathematics starting in the fall of 2021 and 2022. 

The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) has been allocated three fellowship positions to start in the fall of 2021 and three to start in the fall of 2022. Three Simons Bridge Fellowships will begin September 1, 2021; these may be extendable for a second year. 

The Simons Bridge Postdoctoral Fellowships are twelve-month appointments. They may not be held in conjunction with an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowship or similar awards. Fellows should not hold positions at other institutions during their tenure. 

Applicants must identify an individual from ICERM/Brown University or another institution in Rhode Island or the Boston metro area that could serve as a research mentor. Possible mentors could come from the Mathematics Department or Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown or from ICERM’s 2021-22 programs:
There is no need to seek a commitment from a mentor prior to applying.

Eligibility: Applicants must expect to receive their Ph.D. in calendar year 2021. Documentation of completion of all requirements for a doctoral degree in mathematics or a related area by the start of the appointment is required. 

For full consideration: Applicants must submit an AMS Standard Cover Sheet, cover letter, curriculum vitae (including publication list), research statement, and three letters of recommendation addressing the candidate’s research. Please indicate your prospective mentor as a contact on your application (mentor commitment not required prior to applying). Priority will be given to applications received before January 3, 2021.
