The International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS) of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) is seeking applications from candidates with outstanding academic records for one or more faculty positions in Mathematics at junior and senior levels.
We encourage applicants with research experience in any area of mathematics (including theoretical computer science), but are particularly interested in applicants whose work straddles more than one mathematical field or connects to other sciences such as physical, biological, and social sciences. Examples of specific research areas that we are looking for include, but are not limited to, probability and stochastic analysis, geometry and topology, mathematical physics, dynamical systems and differential equations, scientific computing, applied mathematics in general, and theoretical computer science.
The main idea of the mathematics unit is to develop research that draws inspiration from and connects to different mathematical disciplines and also to encourage collaborations with scientists in areas such as biology, social sciences, earth sciences, computer science, and many others, thus making it an integral part of the scientific ecosystem within ICTS. Current research areas include dynamical systems, probability, nonlinear partial differential equations, geometry and mathematical physics. We would like to also develop a theoretical computer science group as part of this unit. The unit already has a very active graduate and postdoctoral program and the selected candidate(s) would be expected to teach and mentor students. For more information, please visit www.icts.res.in/research/mathematics/
Please submit your application material at forms.icts.res.in/faculty-mathematics/. Applications are welcome from persons of all nationalities. Applications will be primarily reviewed after each of the two deadlines: 30 September 2016 and 01 January 2017, but candidates may be considered at other times as well.
About ICTS-TIFR: Founded in 2007, ICTS is a multi and interdisciplinary centre that brings together scientists - physicists, mathematicians, biologists - from all over the world under one roof to solve the most challenging questions posed by nature, to discover the underlying structures across the sciences, and to strive for the unity of knowledge. ICTS endeavors to develop into a hub of scientific activity in the Indian subcontinent, and a centre for world-class research. ICTS also hopes to stimulate and harness the young minds of India and connect with members of the public who are interested in the latest developments of scientific research. The new campus for ICTS provides a modern and well-equipped work environment including state-of-the-art computing and networking infrastructure, conference and lecture halls equipped with high-end audio-video equipment, and a modern library. It has a guesthouse and a housing complex as well as healthcare, childcare, and recreational facilities for members and visitors.
