Emmy Noether Visiting Fellowships

Amalie Emmy Noether was a trailblazing scientist and mathematician known for her ground-breaking contributions to abstract algebra and theoretical physics. "Noether's theorem," which connects conservation laws with symmetries, stands as an essential underpinning for much of modern physics. 

In honour of Noether’s genius and legacy, each year in the fall Perimeter Institute invites applications for Emmy Noether Visiting Fellowships from outstanding theoretical physicists who wish to pursue research at the institute while on leave from their faculty positions at home institutes.

Perimeter Institute promotes an inclusive, welcoming culture and a family-friendly workplace. The Emmy Noether Visiting Fellowships are central to Perimeter Institute's initiatives to support female physicists. The Fellowships provide financial and organizational support to those who are selected each year. 

Emmy Noether Visiting Fellowships provide opportunities to pursue your research in a dynamic, multi-disciplinary environment. Fellows are encouraged to collaborate, take part in workshops and conferences, teach or mentor students in the Perimeter Scholars International master's program, and to enjoy the productive atmosphere and amenities of Perimeter's award-winning facility in Waterloo, Ontario.

Emmy Noether Visiting Fellowships are held for periods of up to one year. Early-career faculty-level scientists are especially encouraged to apply.

We welcome all candidates to apply online by January 15, 2018 however applications will be considered until all positions are filled. Applications must be submitted through Perimeter Institute's online application form.
