Fields-AIMS-Perimeter – Africa Postdoctoral Fellowship 2020 for new & recent PhDs

Application Deadline:  November 15th 2019

Each year the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences, the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences Next Einstein Initiative (AIMS-NEI) invite applications for a one-year joint postdoctoral fellowship.

This fellowship is a unique position intended for new and recent PhDs who are African nationals working in the areas of mathematical sciences or fundamental theoretical physics. The goal of this initiative is to support the careers of young researchers who have a commitment to advance science in Africa.

Perimeter’s areas of strength include strong gravity, condensed matter theory, particle physics, quantum fields & strings, quantum gravity, quantum foundations, quantum information, mathematical physics and cosmology.

The Fields Institute supports research in pure and applied mathematics, statistics, and computer science, as well as collaboration between mathematicians and those applying mathematics in areas such as engineering, the physical and biological sciences, medicine, and economics and finance.

While research interests for the selected fellow may dictate either Perimeter or Fields as a home institute, they will be encouraged to spend time at both institutes.

Application Procedure:

Applicants should submit a covering letter, curriculum vitae, and a description of their research interests, and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent on their behalf. Applications can be made through (current listing:

The annual deadline for applications to the Fields-Perimeter Africa Postdoctoral Fellowship is November 15 of each year. The covering letter should include a statement about the candidate’s interest in specific research programs at Fields or Perimeter, as well as names of faculty members at Fields, Perimeter, or Ontario universities with whom the candidate may be interested in working.
