must be received electronically by the Fields Institute by
December 1, 2017. Send to [email protected].
ca All application materials should be sent by e-mail to director@
fields.utoronto.ca at least 3 months prior to the proposed
start date. The annual application deadlines are September
Please note that nominations for the Margaret Sinclair Award
will be kept under consideration for two additional years
following the initial submission. FIELDS-PERIMETER AFRICA POSTDOCTORAL
The Fields Institute’s Postdoctoral Fellowships provide for
a period of research activity at the Institute during one of
our thematic or focus programs. We are currently soliciting
applications for Fields Postdoctoral Fellowships and Jerrold
E. Marsden Postdoctoral Fellowships. Qualified candidates
who will have a recent PhD (normally awarded not more than
five years before tenure of the Fellowship) are encouraged
FIELDS RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
This fellowship provides an opportunity for a period of full-
time “Research in Residence” at the Fields Institute. Faculty
members at our Principal Sponsoring Universities are invited
to apply (e.g. for a period during a research leave from their
own university), or to nominate a mathematical scientist for
the purpose of collaborative research.
Fellowship holders will be provided with office space, access
to all Fields facilities and activities, and an allowance for
living expenses up to $3,500 for each month of full-time
residence. The minimum length of residence is 1 month, and
the maximum length normally 3 months. Note that faculty
living in the GTA are not eligible to hold the fellowship, but
may nominate external candidates for the award.
Selection of successful candidates will be made by the
Directors of the Institute, in consultation with the Scientific
15, January 15 and May 15.
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
and Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics are inviting
applications from African Nationals for a one-year Joint
The deadline for applications to the 2018 Fields-Perimeter
Africa Postdoctoral Fellowship will be November 15, 2017.

FIELDS INCUBATOR PROPOSALS
In 1999, Fields began a program to foster start-up companies
that commercialize mathematical ideas and that can benefit
from the expertise at the Fields Institute. Companies are
approved by the Fields Board on recommendation by the
Industrial Advisory Board. The goal of the program is to enable
members of the Fields community to start business ventures
by giving them access to the physical, intellectual, and
logistical resources of the Institute. Examples of successful
Fields start-ups are Sigma Analysis and Management and R 2
More information about this program can be obtained by
contacting the Director at [email protected].

basis. Send your pitches to [email protected].
BECOME A SUPPORTER OF THE FIELDS INSTITUTE
Mathematics provides a deep and powerful way of thinking about the world, yet it is not a static, finished subject. There are still many
questions and great intellectual challenges remaining, and you can be part of the discovery.
With your support, the Fields Institute can create a more supportive, inclusive, diverse, and stimulating environment for research in the
mathematical sciences. When you support Fields, you become part of the equation.
