The Department of Mathematics, University of Toronto supports research in most of the main fields of pure and applied mathematics. The Coxeter Fellows will based at both institutions, doing the bulk of their research at Perimeter Institute and teaching one course per year at University of Toronto.

Perimeter Institute is located west of Toronto, in Waterloo, Canada. The Institute offers an exceptional research environment and is currently staffed with 40 full-time and part-time faculty members, 54 Distinguished Visiting Research Chairs, 55 Postdoctoral Researchers, 61 Graduate Students, and 31 exceptional master’s-level students participating in Perimeter Scholars International. Perimeter also hosts hundreds of visitors and conference participants throughout the academic year. For more information please visit the website at

The Department of Mathematics, University of Toronto is a distinguished faculty of more than sixty mathematicians with a large selection of graduate courses and seminars, and a diverse student body of domestic and international students. The department is in a unique position to take maximum advantage of the presence of the Fields Institute, which features special programs in pure and applied mathematics. Currently the department has 139 graduate students, of whom 27 are enrolled in the Master's program and 104 in the Ph.D. program. For more information please visit the website at
