2023 Simons Emmy Noether Fellowship

Job type: Other Research Positions

Emmy Noether was a brilliant scientist whose work underpins much of modern physics.

The Simons Emmy Noether Fellows Program at Perimeter Institute honours her legacy by supporting and encouraging early- and mid-career women physicists.

The visiting fellowships, which are held for periods of up to one year, bring talented researchers to Perimeter at a critical stage of their careers. Fellows enjoy uninterrupted research time immersed in Perimeter’s collaborative environment. The program is flexible and depending on circumstance and need may include support for housing, teaching buy-outs, and childcare; this allows researchers to shape their visits in ways that enrich and accelerate their scientific careers.

PhD physicists who are currently in faculty positions at universities or the equivalent at a research centre and working particularly in the fields represented at Perimeter (quantum information, quantum gravity, quantum fields and strings, cosmology, quantum foundations, particle physics, quantum matter, strong gravity, and mathematical physics) are encouraged to apply.

This program is open to women of all backgrounds and origins. Perimeter Institute is committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from racialized persons/persons of colour, Indigenous/Aboriginal People of North America, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ2 persons, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas. Applicants who require special accommodation in order to complete their application/interview are encouraged to contact [email protected] for assistance.
