IM-Simons postdoctoral Fellowship 2019

The Institute of Mathematics, Vietnam Academy of Science and
Technology invites applications for 4 positions of the IM-Simons
postdoctoral Fellowship Program, 2019-2020. The initial appointment
will be for one year, with possibility of extension up to a second
year. Renewal for the second year will depend on a comprehensive
review of the scientific activity of the fellow.

The targets of this program are:

    to attract foreign young researchers to work at the institute,
    to provide Vietnamese young researchers a bridge to a long-term scientific career,


Applications are invited from qualified researchers under 40 years of
age who have a PhD degree in mathematics no more than five years
before the deadline of the application. Preferences will be given to
research areas of the institute, see the website

Salary and benefits

The salary will be 1.000 USD per month and a subsidy of 2.000 USD per
year for accommodation. In addition, the fellows will receive a round
flight ticket and a research grant up to 1.000 USD per year for
attending conferences and small equipments.

     P.S. although "1000 usd per month" is not a big scholarship, it
     is more than enough to live in Hanoi. It is 5 times the GDP per
     capita of Vietnam (2017), if counted on the "purchasing power
     parity (PPP)" it is equivalent to 2500 usd.

How to Apply

Interested candidates should submit the following documents to

    Curriculum Vitae;
    List of publications;
    A research proposal (no more than four pages);
