Post Doctoral Positions in Mathematics

The Institute welcomes applications for Post-doctoral fellowships in all areas of mathematics, particularly in those of interest to the Mathematics faculty. The names of faculty and details about their interests can be found at the Mathematics Home Page.


The areas of interest broadly speaking are:
Number theory, algebraic geometry, partial differential equations, operator algebras, subfactors, non-commutative geometry, Schroedinger and Jacobi operators, representation
theory and topology (more details can be found in faculty homepages).


QUALIFICATIONS: A PhD in Mathematics. At the time of appointment the applicant should have submitted doctoral thesis. (It is not essential that thesis should have been defended so long as it has been submitted.)


HOW TO APPLY: Applications (on plain paper) may be sent either by snail-mail (address is given below) or email (director AT or fax (91-44-2254-1586) to the Director. The
application should contain a CV including list of publications (if any) and a covering letter (with your contact details such as phone number, email address, and postal address, whenever available, and where you can be contacted a few months later). You should clearly mention that you are applying for Mathematics PDF. Please arrange for at least two, preferably three, reference letters from persons familiar with your research work to be sent directly to the Director.


SELECTION PROCEDURE: Upon receipt of your application, you will  receive an  acknowledgement (by email if you have provided your email address). Your application will be processed once the reference letters are received and you should expect to hear from us in about four to six weeks from the time your application is complete (meaning that all of the following have been received: (i) your letter, (ii) CV, and (iii) all the reference letters). You may feel free to send an email to pdfm AT in case you do not hear from us within two months. In the unlikely event that there is still no response, you may contact any member of the math faculty (preferably by email) preferably whose interests closely match yours.


Salary will depends on number of years completed since thesis defence. At present it ranges from Rs.15,000/- (in case thesis is submitted but not yet defended) upto a maximum of Rs. 17500/- per month. Furnished accommodation and medical coverage will be provided. You will receive HRA (equal to 30% of your stipend) in case you do not require Institute accommodation.
