Postdoctoral Fellows and Program Visitors
Postdoctoral fellowship
applications
We will support a number of Fields postdocs for the duration of
the program, as well as offer support towards a visitors' program,
including visiting Ph.D. students To apply for a postdoctoral
fellowship see postdoctoral
web page.
Program Participants requesting support
or office space (application now closed)
All scientific events are open to the mathematical sciences community.
Visitors who are interested in office space or funding
are requested to apply by filling out the application form. Additional
support is available (pending NSF funding) to support junior US
visitors to this
program.
Fields scientific programs are devoted to research in the mathematical
sciences, and enhanced graduate and postdoctoral training opportunities.
Part of the mandate of the Institute is to broaden and enlarge
the community, and to encourage the participation of women and
members of visible minority groups in our scientific programs.
