ESI – Programme Proposals in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics

 The scholarship is awarded to students and PhD students from around the world for research in research projects at the Erwin Schroedinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics (ESI) in the fields of: mathematics, physics, informatics, astronomy.

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
  • a list of publications and previous achievements
  • names of one local contact person (faculty) and 2 possible referees

The Senior Research Fellowship Programme aims at attracting internationally renowned scientists to Vienna for visits to the ESI for up to several months. The programme aims to stimulate interactions between the Senior Research Fellow and the local scientific community. It is intended to enable graduate students, postdoctoral fellows as well as established researchers at the surrounding institutions to communicate with leading scientists in their field of expertise and to initiate common research projects and scientific collaborations.

The programme is by invitation only. Senior Research Fellows are usually chosen based on nominations made by members of the local scientific community about one year prior to the intended time period.
