Type: Research/Fellowship


  • Visiting Fellows must have a PhD in mathematics prior to the start of their fellowship.
  • Preference will be given to candidates who will benefit most from the time spent at ICTP, in the sense of pursuing their own research, using the ICTP facilities, interacting with other mathematicians, and ultimately turning the fellowship into a positive opportunity for their home institution or country as well as for themselves.

Duration of Fellowship: 1 to 3 months

How to Apply: Candidates should apply using the ICTP online application system.

Candidates are requested to provide letters of recommendations from established  researchers.

Junior applicants are highly recommend to provide at least three letters of recommendation.
