Simons Postdoctoral Fellowships in Mathematics

Thanks to the generous support of the Simons Foundation, the Simons Postdoctoral Fellowships in Mathematics were established in 2021. The scheme was created to enable exceptional early career researchers in the mathematical sciences to gain experience, foster independence and forge new connections, thereby assisting them during the challenging realities of COVID-19 and aiding them on their way to a successful academic career.

These prestigious one-year fellowships see successful candidates spend four-to-six months participating in an INI programme with the remainder of the period spent at either of Cambridge University’s Departments of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS) or Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP).

Simons Postdoctoral Fellows

Aluna Rizzoli   University of Cambridge Groups, representations and applications: new perspectives Aluna completed his Master of Mathematics degree at the University of St Andrews, before obtaining his PhD at Imperial College London under the supervision of Professor Martin Liebeck. His research interests involve algebraic groups and their rational actions.
Avi Mayorcas University of Cambridge Frontiers in kinetic theory: connecting microscopic to macroscopic scales Avi completed his BSc in Mathematics and Philosophy at the University of Nottingham, before obtaining an MSc in Mathematics at King’s College London followed by a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Oxford. His research interests lie at the intersection of stochastic analysis and interacting particle systems.
Emine Yildirim University of Cambridge Cluster algebras and representation theory Emine Yıldırım was a Coleman Research Fellow at Queen’s University after obtaining her Ph.D. in Mathematics from Université du Québec à Montréal. She is interested in representation theory of algebras, cluster algebras, their categorisation, and related combinatorics.
