  • Date: 08/02/2022

PIMS-Europe (CNRS IRL #3069) is announcing the return of the PIMS-Europe Fellowships. The goal of this program is to develop and support research collaborations between mathematical scientists at PIMS member universities and researchers across France. These fellowships will champion a mutual exchange of knowledge and talent while encouraging cross-ocean research on the frontline of the mathematical sciences. Fellowship awardees will receive CAD $5,000 to facilitate long-term visits to France.


Fellowship Parameters: 


  • All mathematical scientists with faculty positions at PIMS member universities are eligible for the fellowship.
  • PIMS-Europe Fellows are expected to spend at least two continuous months working on collaborative research in France. PIMS encourages longer visits.
  • Visits must begin in 2023 and are expected to last at least 2 months.


Application Deadline: October 1, 2022



Applications MUST include 

  • A focused overview of the planned research activity, including locations and anticipated France-based collaborators (up to 5 pages).
  • A letter of support from the proposed host institution in France.
  • A letter from the applicant’s department head supporting the proposed visit. The letter from the department head should reference the duration of the applicant’s stay in France. For visits that include part of an academic year, the department must commit to provide a teaching release covering the duration of the proposed visit. 



There will be Five PIMS-Europe Fellowships available in the 2022 competition.
