ICERM’s postdoctoral and researcher 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. Check mathjobs.org for all current postdoctoral job postings.

Research Associates are hired through funding from a Mathematics-Simons Collaboration on Arithmetic Geometry, Number Theory, and Computation, which is part of a collaboration with PIs at Boston University, Harvard, Dartmouth, and Brown. Learn more about the Simons research associate job postings.

I received my PhD from Princeton in 2019 under the supervision of Assaf Naor after undergraduate studies at the University of Athens. My research interests lie in metric geometry, discrete analysis and convexity. Under the auspices of ICERM's “Harmonic Analysis and Convexity” program, I hope to continue ongoing projects and start new collaborations on Brunn-Minkowski theory and Boolean analysis.

Nimita will receive her Ph.D. in 2022 jointly from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay and Monash University under the supervision of Prof. Vishnu Narayanan and Dr. James Saunderson. She will be a postdoc fellow at ICERM from September 2022 - May 2023. Her dissertation work mainly focused on large-scale optimization problems (with development of randomized algorithms for certain combinatorial optimization problems, especially semidefinite programs). She is broadly interested in approximate memory-efficient algorithms for large-scale convex optimization, integer and combinatorial optimization proving the tightness of semidefinite relaxations. Her current work focuses on developing approximate first-order algorithms with inexact oracle for problems with a self-concordant objective function.
