Research Immersion Fellowship

This program supports individuals with high potential to re-enter an active research career after an interruption for family responsibilities.
To qualify, candidates must have been in a postdoctoral or faculty position at the time their active research career was interrupted. The duration of the career interruption should be at least one year and no more than eight years. Examples of qualifying interruptions include a complete or partial hiatus from research activities for child rearing; an incapacitating illness or injury of the candidate, spouse, partner, or a member of the immediate family; or relocation to accommodate a spouse, partner, or other close family member.

 

Postdoctoral Fellowships

Applications are invited for postdoctoral fellowship positions for the upcoming academic year. For details of upcoming Programs and the application requirements please click here.

Qualified candidates who have recently completed a PhD in a related area of the mathematical sciences are encouraged to apply. The fellowships provide for a period of at least one year of engagement in research and participation in the activities of the Institute. They may be offered in conjunction with partner universities, through which a second year of support may be possible. One recipient will be awarded the institute's prestigious Jerrold E. Marsden Postdoctoral Fellowship. Applicants seeking postdoctoral fellowships funded by other agencies (such as NSERC or international fellowships) are encouraged to request the Fields Institute as their proposed location of tenure, and should apply to the address below for a letter of invitation.

Applications are encouraged from all qualified candidates, particularly women, aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities .

Fields Institute Fellows

The Fields Institute is soliciting nominations for Fields Institute Fellows. These are awarded in recognition of outstanding contributions to the Fields Institute and its activities.

The Margaret Sinclair Memorial Award

Recognizing Innovation and Excellence in Mathematics Education

The Fields Institute invites nominations by December 1 of each year for this award recognizing an educator in Canada who has demonstrated innovation and excellence in promoting mathematics education at the elementary, secondary, college or university level.

Dean’s Distinguished Visiting Professorship

The program brings one of the world’s leading scientists to the Institute for a full semester each year, to give a lecture course for graduate and senior undergraduate students. The program is designed to intensify the mathematical research and interaction at Fields by enabling distinguished senior mathematicians to visit for one to two semesters each year, and be active participants in the program activities at the Fields Institute during their tenure.
