Closing date for application to the IHES general visiting program and the IHES postdoctoral program

Application to the IHES general visiting program

Every year, around 200 visiting professors come to IHES to profit from its exceptional working environment and the opportunity to collaborate with other researchers of the scientific community and to participate in the IHES activities. The IHES general visiting programme allows a group of selected candidates to visit the Institute during a limited period of time, proposed by the candidate and approved by the scientific council. Visiting professors at IHES are offered a per diem, an office, and free accommodation at the Ormaille residence. Lunch at the Institute’s cafeteria is also offered to them during the week.

The selection of candidates is made by the scientific council on the only criterion of excellence and in close collaboration with the CNRS-IHES director and associated professor, and the holder of the université de Cergy-Pontoise – IHES Chair in Analysis. Applications for the general visiting program are assessed twice a year by the Institute’s scientific council. The next selection will take place in December 2020.

Deadline for visiting applications: 3 December 2020

Application to the IHES postdoctoral visiting program

In recent years, the Institute has intensified its postdoctoral programs with the aim of giving more space and opportunities to young researchers. We offer two types of postdoctoral  stay:

    • Suitable candidates can join specific research projects funded by ERC grants supporting some of the Institute’s permanent members (Hugo Duminil-Copin, Fanny Kassel, Maxim Kontsevich, Vasily Pestun) or other programs such as the Huawei Young Talents Programme, the IBM program in Artificial Intelligence, or the joint program CARMIN with participation to one of the quarterly thematic programs of the Institut Henri Poincaré.
    • One or two-year positions are also offered to young researchers in mathematics and theoretical physics as part of the non-specific program.

Deadline for post-doctoral applications: 3 December 2020

The scientific council of IHES will meet in December 2020 to examine the applications received and to select the next visiting professor.
