INIMS is a founding member of the European Post-Doctoral Institute for Mathematical Sciences (EPDI), a network of 11 European research institutes which offer a number of post-doctoral fellowships each year. The EPDI was founded in October 1995 with the common goal to encourage the mobility of young scientists on a European scale. Each year, 5 laureates (either European, or with a PhD validated in Europe) and 1 Japanese fellow of all mathematical background are selected by an International Jury on the basis of excellence. Candidates should propose an itinerary with visits to at least 2 EPDI institutes conducting scientific activities related to the areas of interest of the candidate. The duration of visits may vary but should in principle not exceed 12 months.

Applications are now open. See the EDPI flyer for full details.

Candidates who apply to attend INIMS programmes should note the following information.

  • INIMS is a visitors research centre which is distinct from the Department for Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) and from the Department for Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS) at the University to Cambridge.
  • INIMS hosts research programmes but has no permanent academic staff.
  • To participate in INIMS activity as a EPDI Laureate it is necessary to be attached to an INIMS research programme.
  • To include a period at INIMS in Cambridge in an EPDI itinerary
    • identify the future programme with which you would like to be involved;
    • apply to the organisers whose names are on the web page of the chosen programme;
    • tell the INIMS administrator what you have done.
