Visiting Fellowships for outstanding mathematicians from developing countries

ICTP invites applications for a small number of visiting fellowships for outstanding mathematicians from developing countries of any age. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.

Visiting Fellowships are intended for short visits to ICTP (typically between 1 to 3 months) during the period 1 September 2016 to 31 August 31 2017, though longer visits (up to 9 months) are possible.

Visiting Fellows must have a PhD in mathematics prior to the start of their Fellowship.

Preference will be 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.

Candidates should apply using the ICTP online application system. They 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 requested to provide letters of recommendations from established researchers. Both the letters of recommendation and the research project are crucial components of the application and play a significant role in the evaluation of the candidates. For junior applicants we highly recommend they provide at least three letters of recommendation.

We also welcome applications from small groups, two or three scientists, who wish to spend some time working together on a joint project at ICTP. In such a case, each member of the applicant group must apply separately for a Visiting Fellowship through the ICTP online system, describing in their research project the nature of the joint work planned.

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, as well as the opportunity to interact with visiting mathematicians.
