Fellowships for outstanding mathematicians from developing countries
03/07/2013 – Trieste
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) invites applications for a small number of fellowships for outstanding mathematicians from developing countries.
Visiting Fellowships are open to mathematicians of any age and the fellowships fund visits of between 1 to 4 months to ICTP during one of the following two periods:
September 1 – December 20, 2013
January 10 – August 30, 2014
Deadline for applications: July 31, 2013.
Preference is given to candidates who will benefit most from the time spent at ICTP, in the sense of pursuing their own research, using the ICTP facilities, interacting with other mathematicians, and ultimately turning the fellowship into a positive opportunity for their home institution or country as well as for themselves. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
Candidates are required to submit, along with their CV, a detailed research project with specific goals that can be realistically achieved during their planned visit to ICTP. In addition, candidates are also required to provide letters of recommendations from established researchers.
We also welcome applications from small groups – two or three scientists who wish to spend some time working on a joint project at ICTP.
Candidates should apply using the online application.
Successful candidates will have the possibility to participate in the Mathematics activities of ICTP, the International School of Advanced Studies (ISAS/SISSA) and the University of Trieste, including the opportunity to interact with visiting mathematicians. Details on the life at ICTP can be found at Visit ICTP.
