The IHES Scientific Council selects a number of applicants for postdoctoral research visits in mathematics, theoretical physics and theoretical biology at its December meeting each year. Selected postdocs will be invited for one or two years, starting from the following academic year.

Next call for applications: Autumn 2018

Selected applicants will be welcomed to IHES as members of the Postdoctoral Institute.

Some of these positions are funded thanks to IHES’ partnership with outside institutions or because they are part of a specific project (ERC, Simons Foundation, EPSRC, CARMIN).

All applications must be completed online and include the following:
– duly completed application form
– curriculum-vitae
– list of publications
– research summary
– 2 to 3 letters of recommendation

Joint postdocs

The CARMIN Project enable selected postdocs to combine a research visit at IHES with participation to one of the quaterly IHP thematic programmes for a duration of 12 months.
