Junior Research Fellows

The Junior Research Fellowship Programme supports external or local graduate students and recent postdocs (at most 5 years past receiving their PhD) to work on a project of their own in mathematics or physics that is either connected to a research direction carried out at the University of Vienna or to an ESI thematic programme. The ESI provides support for a Junior Research Fellow to work at the ESI for a time period between one and four months. Proposals should be submitted at least 4 months prior to the envisaged time period and consist of:

  • a brief description of the project (3 pages)
  • a cv
  • the list of publications and previous achievements
  • names of one local contact person (faculty) and 2 possible referees
  • a letter of support from their local contact

Applications for fellowships should be sent in PDF-format to applications@esi.ac.at. Deadlines are March 15, June 15 and October 15, in the year preceding the proposed visit.
