ICTP-SAIFR announces the opening of permanent positions for computer systems manager and bilingual secretary. The positions are part of the public concurso nº124/2022 of UNESP, Analista de Informática I, na área de Desenvolvimento de Sistemas para Eventos, and Assistente Técnico Administrativo I, na área de Eventos Internacionais. Applications are open until 19/09/2022.

On June 29, FAPESP announced the renewal of the thematic grant “ICTP-SAIFR: a regional center for theoretical physics” for the five-year period of 2023-2027. The grant includes 37 researchers and will continue funding at the same level for ICTP-SAIFR schools and workshops, as well as provide fellowships for postdocs, PhD students, science journalists, public high-school teachers and technical training.

After two years of online activities, ICTP-SAIFR returned to in-person activities with the Workshop on Representation Theory and Applications from April 25-29. The workshop was organized by Prof. Vyacheslav Futorny (USP) and focused on recent advances in the representation theory of Lie algebras, their generalizations and applications.

As part of the Serrapilheira/ICTP-SAIFR Training Program in Quantitative Biology and Ecology from July 4-December 2, 41 internationally renowned lecturers will present minicourses for a selected group of 30 students and will meet informally with Brazilian PhD students, postdocs and faculty to develop research collaborations.
