Applications are open for the fifth edition of the joint school and master’s program between ICTP-SAIFR and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. Students will be selected to the joint master’s program through an exam at the 2022 Journeys into Theoretical Physics school from August 1-7.

To stimulate the growth of a Latin-American community in research areas related to gravitational wave observations, ICTP-SAIFR announces an annual competition for the ICTP-SAIFR Prize in Classical Gravity and Applications with nomination deadline of April 30, 2022.

The second edition of the Serrapilheira/ICTP-SAIFR Training Program in Quantitative Biology and Ecology will be held in person from July 4 - December 2, 2022 with over 36 distinguished lecturers. Applications are open until April 13 for undergraduate and master's students with quantitative skills who are interested in solving open problems in biology and ecology.

ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research

The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-SAIFR) is a South American regional center in the city of São Paulo created in a collaboration of the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the Instituto de Fisica Teorica (IFT) of São Paulo State University (UNESP) and the Sao Paulo Research Funding Agency (FAPESP). Its activities include seminars, minicourses, schools and workshops for graduate students and researchers in all areas related to theoretical physics, as well as outreach activities for the general public and for high-school students and teachers. The center has funding for short-term and long-term visitors as well as for postdoctoral and permanent researchers.
