CRM-ISM Postdoctoral Fellowships

CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowships are awarded to promising researchers who have recently obtained or expect to obtain a Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences. The fellowship offers an annual stipend of at least $40,000 CDN for one year, and is renewable for a second year. Furthermore, an annual amount of $1,000 CDN in research funds will be made available to cover participation costs in conferences. This is a research fellowship allowing the recipient to devote all 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's 2016 Summer-Fall Thematic Semester will focus on Probabilistic Methods in Geometry, Topology and Spectral Theory. The 2017 Winter-Spring Thematic Semester will focus on Combinatorics.



Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for a CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowship, researchers must have obtained a Ph.D. after May 1st, 2012. 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.
