VIASM invites research fellowship application for the year 2016


Vietnam Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (VIASM) invites research groups and individuals to apply for short-term research stays for the year 2016 (min. 2 months, max. 12 months). Candidates can be groups or individuals who are teaching, doing research as well as applying mathematics in various areas of technology, economics and society. The candidates will be evaluated by the Scientific Council of the Institute.

A priority will be given to research groups but outstanding individual researchers are encouraged to apply on their own as well.

The VIASM’s Scientific Council will base on applicants’ scientific performance to appoint one in five positions:

  • Distinguished Professors: For candidates with outstanding achievements.
  • Research Professors: For candidates with at least the title of associate professor or with Dr. Sc. (Habilitation) and research excellence.
  • Senior Researcher: For candidates with PhD. degree and good research.
  • Researcher: For candidates with a PhD. and some publications in good international journals.
  • Young Researcher: For applicants under 35 years old and a publication in a good international journal.

Moreover, in 2016 VIASM also offers 5 post-doctoral positions. Post-doctoral fellows will receive the same support as researchers, but for at most an one-year stay. Only applicants who achieved Ph.D degrees after 1.1.2011 can be accepted.

Research fellows would receive a honorarium during their stays. Their accommodation in Hanoi could be arranged by the Institute. Research fellows are expected to stay at least two months. In case it is needed, research fellows will be granted a travel allowance for one round-trip in economic fare from their home institution.

In addition, research groups may be given financial support for organizing scientific activities and for inviting mathematicians (especially from overseas) for a joint research project or giving lectures.

Moreover, five mathematicians who are invited to work at the VIASM in 2016 would be selected to NIMS (Korea) or IMS (NUS Singapore) from one to three months for cooperation and exchange purposes.
