ICERM’s postdoctoral program brings early career mathematicians to the institute in order to support and expand their research and to create lasting career collaborations and connections. ICERM hires two categories of postdoctoral researchers: "Semester" postdoctoral fellows who participate in a single semester program, and a smaller number of "Institute" postdoctoral fellows who stay at ICERM for an academic year. Interested in applying? Check mathjobs.org for current job postings.
