With generous support from the National Science Foundation, the IAS School of Mathematics selects approximately 85 Members per year. The School welcomes applications from mathematicians and theoretical computer scientists at all career levels, and strongly encourages applications from underrepresented groups and mid-career scientists (6-15 years from Ph.D.). Competitive salaries, oncampus housing, and other resources are available for researchers in all mathematical subject areas. Most positions are for one or two terms, but for applicants who cannot leave their jobs or families for an entire term, the School now offers a special two-month membership option.
In 2023–2024, there will be a special-year program, p-Adic Arithmetic Geometry, organized by
Jacob Lurie and Bhargav Bhatt; however, membership will not be limited to mathematicians in this field.
