Amalie Emmy Noether, an influential German mathematician known for her ground-breaking contributions to abstract algebra and theoretical physics, was regarded by Albert Einstein as the most important woman in the history of mathematics.
Perimeter Institute invites applications for Emmy Noether Visiting Fellowships from outstanding theoretical physicists who wish to spend time at the institute while on leave from their faculty positions at home institutes. These select Visiting Researcher positions are for periods of up to one year. Researchers in the areas of classical gravity, condensed matter theory, cosmology, mathematical physics (including mathematics), particle physics, quantum fields and strings, quantum foundations, quantum information and quantum gravity are encouraged to apply.
Emmy Noether Visiting Fellowships provide opportunities for outstanding and original scientists to pursue their research in a dynamic, multi-disciplinary environment with opportunities to collaborate, take part in workshops and conferences as well as enjoy the productive atmosphere and amenities of Perimeter’s award-winning facility. Perimeter’s inclusive culture and family-friendly workplace welcomes and strongly encourages opportunities for female physicists. Early career faculty-level scientists are especially encouraged to apply.
Applications for Emmy Noether Visiting Fellowships are now being accepted. The deadline for applications is January 15, 2014. Please use the on-line application form.
The fellowship comes with financial and organizational support, determined on a case by case basis. This may include some or all of: teaching buyouts, salary support or top-up, local expenses, accommodation, reimbursement as required for child care, return transportation, and research related travel.
