Fall applications are open
Deadline: 02 December 2016
Airbus Group Corporate Foundation has entered into a partnership agreement with the TIFR Centre for Applicable Mathematics (TIFR-CAM) and the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS-TIFR) to create an International teaching and research chair entitled “Mathematics of Complex Systems,” with the aim of developing innovative research involving theoretical, applied, and computational work related to mathematics of complex systems. Several attractive Prize Postdoctoral Fellowships are available under this program for which applications are invited for the 2017-2018 session. Fellowships are available in the following areas and related fields:
- Dynamical systems, Stochastic Analysis, Data Assimilation (PI: Amit Apte, Sreekar Vadlamani)
- Nonlinear waves, Fluid mechanics (PI: Vishal Vasan)
- Inertial particles in turbulent fluid flows (PI: Samriddhi Sankar Ray, Rama Govindarajan)
- Homogenization and control of PDEs, inverse problems, image reconstruction (PIs: M. Vanninathan, Mythily Ramaswamy, Venky Krishnan)
- Numerical methods for fluid flows (PI: Praveen C. )
For more details on research themes click here. Fellows are expected to work closely with the research groups at ICTS and CAM in Bangalore, a highly cosmopolitan city, known as the garden city of India. Both centres provide stimulating intellectual atmosphere and state- of-the-art facilities for academic research. Fellows will have opportunity to interact with leading scientists from all over the world through collaborative visits, workshops and conferences, funded by the program.
Applications are invited from highly motivated young scientists with proven track record. Candidates must have a PhD degree in mathematics, physics or engineering. Prior research experience in the specific areas mentioned above is recommended, but not essential.
Salary and benefits
The salary will be Rs. 60,000 per month and the fellows can also opt for free Institute accommodation or a house rent allowance of Rs. 15,000 per month. In addition, the fellows are eligible for ICTS accommodation (or housing allowance @30% of the honorarium). Fellows receive health insurance, travel support up to Rs. 200,000 per year and a research grant of Rs. 200,000 per year for computing services, publications, relocation, and other direct costs. The initial appointment will be for two years, with a possibility of extension up to three years. Renewal for the third year will depend on a comprehensive review of the scientific activity of the Fellow
How to Apply
Interested candidates should APPLY ONLINE with their:
- Curriculum Vitae.
- List of publications.
- A research proposal (not more than two pages).
- A covering letter.
- The applicants also need to arrange at least three recommendation letters sent directly to the ICTS.
The deadline is December 2, 2016, but applications will be considered until the positions are filled. The nominal starting date of September 1, 2017 is negotiable. Informal queries may be directly addressed to the individual PIs.

ICTS is a new initiative in Indian science, with a mandate to contribute to frontier research by providing a platform devoted to theoretical natural sciences and interdisciplinary and applied mathematics through its various programs. The current in-house research program focusses on astrophysical relativity, numerical linear algebra, computational science, data assimilation, dynamical systems, non-linear dynamics, fluid mechanics, mathematical physics and geometry, physical biology, statistical mechanics and turbulence, condensed matter physics, and string theory ( www.icts.res.in/research). ICTS hosts strong visitors and associates driven programs, a highly competitive graduate school as well as a devoted postdoctoral program, that forms an integral part of the in-house research. A state-of-the-art residential campus is ready to provide vibrant academic environment. Located in Bangalore, the garden city of India, with pleasant and moderate climate, ICTS maintains close ties with the world-class scholastic ambience of the city.
