Von Neumann Fellowships

The School of Mathematics awards this one year fellowship to about eight incoming Members per year. Selected applicants are typically 5, but no more than 15, years past attaining their PhD.

We also ask von Neumann Fellows to participate in post-doctoral mentoring. Fellows who participate are typically assigned 4-6 post-docs. Mentoring activities include the following:

  1. Attend the Post-Doc Short Talks at the beginning of each term;
  2. Attend the Mentoring Dinner at the beginning of each term;
  3. Have lunch with your mentees 2-4 times per term to discuss both scientific work and career development. The School pays for these lunches;
  4. Once per term, briefly consult about your mentees with their Faculty Contact(s).

Applying

Von Neumann Fellowships are highly competitive. Although all mid-career applicants are automatically considered, please ask your letter writer(s) to specifically recommend you for a von Neumann Fellowship.
