THE FIELDS INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH IN MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES
Postdoctoral Fellowships
at the Fields Institute

Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Fellowship positions. The Fields Institute's Postdoctoral Fellowships provide for a period of research activity at the Institute and participation in our programs. They require no teaching, but Fellows may teach at most course per semester at a partner university for an additional stipend. We currently offer four kinds of Postdoctoral Fellowship.

The Fields Institute is committed to diversity and welcomes applications from women, members of First Nations or visible minorities, persons with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups, and others who may contribute to the diversity of ideas. If you would like to apply for a Postdoctoral Fellowhsip for Thematic Programs please use one of the links below and indicate the program on your cover sheet.

1. Fields Postdoctoral Fellowships
Six-month Fields Postdoctoral Fellowships with a stipend of $20,000. These Fellowships are awarded for participation in one of our Major Thematic Programs, and there are typically six or seven for each program. They may be offered in conjunction with an Affiliate or Principal Sponsoring university, through which a further period of support may be possible. Please indicate on the cover sheet of your application the program in which you are interested, and include the names of faculty members at partner universities who may be appropriate as supervisors. (You are encouraged to apply directly to these other institutions as well. If you do not wish your application to be shared with a partner university, please note this in your letter of application.)

2. Jerrold E. Marsden Postdoctoral Fellowships
One of the six-month Postdoctoral Fellows associated to each of our Major Thematic Programs will be awarded the Institute's prestigious Jerrold E. Marsden Postdoctoral Fellowship. This Fellowship provides a stipend of $25,000 plus a $1000 research grant to be used during the tenure of the award. Conditions are otherwise as in 2 above.

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 Institute for a letter of invitation.

3. Fields-Ontario Postdoctoral Fellowships (FOPDFs).
FOPDFs are two-year fellowships with a stipend of $50,000 per year. Either four or five FOPDFs are awarded each year. These prestigious Fellowships involve a six-month semester at the Fields Institute for participation in one of our Major Thematic Programs, and eighteen months (before or after the Program) at one or more of our Principal Sponsoring Universities (PSUs). An FOPDF may be renewable for a third year. An FOPDF has no teaching requirement, but fellows are permitted to teach a single one-semester course per year for an extra stipend.
Please indicate on the cover sheet of your application the program in which you are interested, and include the names of faculty members at PSUs who may be appropriate as supervisors. The Fields PSUs are: Carleton University, McMaster University, the University of Ottawa, the University of Toronto, the University of Waterloo, the University of Western Ontario, and York University.

4. Fields-Perimeter Africa Postdoctoral Fellowship
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences and Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics invite applications for a new 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. 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. We welcome candidates to apply before March 15, 2014, however applications will be considered until this position is filled.
