SISSA Mathematical Fellowships are 3-years post-doctoral positions for promising early stage researchers in Mathematics. The SISSA Mathematical fellowships are not restricted to a specific research theme but are intended to give to promising, highly qualified, early stage researchers the opportunity to independently pursue their own research as well as to enlarge their research profile by interacting with top-leading scientists.
SISSA provides an international multidisciplinary research environment with several research level courses and seminars. The successful candidates will benefit form the interaction with SISSA faculties and students as well as with the several internationally recognised scientists visiting SISSA every year. Starting from 2018 there will be a yearly call for two fellowships. Positions will customary start in October, but different arrangements will be possible.
The appointments will last up to three years and will be provided with a competitive salary together with a small research grant that can be autonomously used by the post-doc in order to independently pursue her/his own research. Teaching research level courses will also be possible, but there is no obligation.
Candidates are supposed to show research independence and a promising research profile. The PhD title is not needed in order to apply but it must be obtained before the beginning of the position.
The application shall include a CV and a research statement also stressing possible interaction with SISSA faculties. At least two reference letters shall also be provided. In case the candidate has not yet defended his/her thesis one of the two letter needs necessarily to be written by the PhD advisor and it must also include a description of the thesis.
NEXT CALL WILL BE OPEN AROUND THE 15th of MARCH 2018
