Huawei Young Talents Program

Huawei Young Talents Program
Duration: 2 or 3 years


Within the framework of the Huawei Young Talents Program, funded by Huawei Technologies, IHES is opening three 2-year postdoctoral positions starting in September 2024, with a possible extension of 1 year.

The Huawei Young Talents Program fellows at IHES will develop their research on topics of their interest in mathematics and theoretical physics, and will have the possibility to collaborate with the Institute’s permanent professors. Topics could include (but are not limited to):

  • Algebraic Geometry, Automorphic Forms, Diophantine Geometry and Topos Theory;
  • Probability Theory, Statistical Physics, Mathematical Physics;
  • Partial Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis and Modelization;
  • Geometry, Dynamics, Subgroups of Lie Groups;
  • Quantum Field Theory, Conformal Field Theory;
  • Quantum Lattice Models, Condensed Matter Theory, Topological Phases
  • Tensor Networks
  • Information Theory
  • Number theory
  • Game Theory
  • Random Matrix Theory
  • Linear and Non-Linear programming
  • Compressed Sensing and Optimization methods

Contract details

The Huawei Young Talents Program fellows will receive a salary, have the opportunity to stay at the IHES housing complex. They will have access to IHES’ facilities (cafeteria, office space, library, seminar room, … ). A personal scholarship will be awarded to finance scientific travel.

The Huawei Young Talents Program offers in 2024:

– 1 position in theoretical physics

IHES is advertising one (2+1)-year post-doctoral positions in theoretical physics with a starting date in the fall 2024. Candidates with a strong background in quantum and/or conformal field theory, condensed matter theory and topological field theory, broadly interpreted, and interested in critical phenomena in condensed matter and statistical mechanics, bootstrap, renormalization group, topological phases of matter, generalized symmetries and tensor networks, are invited to apply. Successful candidates will collaborate with the IHES physics faculty Slava Rychkov and Clément Delcamp and will benefit from the vibrant physics community of the greater Paris area.

Contacts: Slava Rychkov, Clément Delcamp

Applications for the theoretical physics position have to be done on the Academic Jobs Online website

– 2  positions in mathematics

Applications should be sent online and include the application form duly completed, a CV, a list of publications, a description of research project and future plans as well as 2 or 3 letters of recommendation.

Next call for applications: Fall 2024
