ICERM's 2016-2017 Postdoctoral Opportunities

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.


POSTDOCTORAL INSTITUTE FELLOWSHIPS:

ICERM's two Postdoctoral Institute Fellowships are 9-month appointments, both commencing in September 2017. One will participate in the fall 2017 "Mathematical and Computational Challenges in Radar and Seismic Reconstruction" semester program and remain as a researcher-in-residence during the spring 2018 semester. The other will begin as a researcher-in-residence during the fall 2017 semester and will participate in the spring 2018 "Point Configurations in Geometry, Physics and Computer Science" semester program. ICERM will match each Institute Postdoc with a faculty mentor for the entire academic year.

ICERM Postdoctoral Institute Fellows receive a nine-month stipend of $52,000, as well a stipend for benefits and a travel allowance of $1,500; additional summer support may be available in 2018.


SEMESTER POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWS:

ICERM’s ten Postdoctoral Semester Fellowships are 4-month semester-long appointments. Five begin in September 2017 during the "Mathematical and Computational Challenges in Radar and Seismic Reconstruction" fall semester program. The other five begin in February 2018 during the "Point Configurations in Geometry, Physics and Computer Science" spring semester program. ICERM will match each Semester Postdoc with a faculty mentor for the duration of either the fall or spring semester program.

ICERM Postdoctoral Semester Fellows receive a stipend of $26,000 over four months, plus a stipend for benefits and a travel allowance of $750.
