Arnold Fellowships in physics and mathematics

The London Institute is hiring five Arnold Fellows from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus in theoretical physics and mathematics.

Salary: Highly competitive, benchmarked against the University of London

Arnold Fellows are named after the Ukrainian-born Russian mathematician and physicist Vladimir Arnold. They are for Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian nationals to move to London and take up research posts at the London Institute for Mathematical Sciences. The posts are full-time positions and last three years. They are for world-class academic researchers in theoretical physics and mathematics. To access the broadest spectrum of talent, we will consider applicants from a wide range of career stages, so long as they have a record of research output at the highest level. Salaries will be benchmarked against comparable posts at the University of London.
To apply, please send a CV to at@lims.ac.uk. There is no deadline, but we aim to fill the posts as soon as possible. Strong candidates will be invited for an interview. Visas will be issued via the UK Global Talent programme.

London Institute
The London Institute for Mathematical Sciences is a non-profit institute for curiosity-driven research in physics and mathematics. It gives scientists the freedom and support to make fundamental discoveries full-time. There are no teaching duties.
The Institute is funded by a range of research grants, donations and corporate investments. In 2019 it received government recognition as an Independent Research Organisation, the first organisation in the physical sciences to do so. In 2021 it was invited to take up space in the Royal Institution in Mayfair, the world’s most distinguished scientific building, which will allow the Institute to expand.
More about the spirit of our organisation can be found on our website, in particular our Perspectives and Principles sections.
