The 2017-2018 Postdoctoral Awards Competition begins in September 2016. Please read the following statement carefully.

The Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) and the Institut des sciences mathématiques (ISM) invite applications for their joint postdoctoral fellowship program starting in September 2017.

CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowships are awarded to promising researchers who have obtained a Ph.D in the mathematical sciences after May 1st, 2013. The fellowship offers an annual stipend of at least $40,000 CAD for one year, and is renewable for a second year. Furthermore, an annual amount of $1,000 CAD in research funds will be made available to cover participation costs in conferences. This is a research fellowship allowing the recipient to devote most of his or her time to research under the supervision of a professor from one of the ISM member universities. If fellows wish to teach, they may request to be offered teaching assignments for which they will receive an additional salary.

Applications are welcome in all fields of research in which the CRM and the ISM are actively involved, namely: actuarial and financial mathematics, algebra and number theory, analysis, applied mathematics, category theory, combinatorics, geometry and topology, mathematical methods in medical imaging, mathematical physics, nonlinear dynamics, probability, quantum computing and statistics.

The CRM is a national research center in the mathematical sciences. It includes thirteen research laboratories, and every year it organizes a wide range of events attracting participants from around the world.

The Institut des sciences mathématiques (ISM) is a consortium of nine Québec universities (Concordia UniversityHEC MontréalLaval UniversityMcGill University, the Université de MontréalUQAMUQTRUniversité de Sherbrooke and Bishop's University) for training and collaboration in the mathematical sciences.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for a CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowship, researchers must have obtained a Ph.D. after May 1st, 2013. Priority will be given to candidates who have obtained their Ph.D. within 3 years.

Please note that while it is not an eligibility requirement, preference will be given to candidates who are not currently registered at one of the ISM member universities.
