PSI Fellow

PSI fellows provide outstanding support for all aspects of the programs offered by the Academic Programs departments. Perimeter Institute is pleased to seek a contract PSI Fellow position.

Most notably, the fellows provide support to our flagship Perimeter Scholars International program (PSI). As part of this support, fellows will typically give lectures (or attend lectures given by faculty), organize and supervise tutorials, manage homework, and possibly attend the week-long PSI winter school. Fellows are also involved in delivering our PhD course offerings. Fellows are involved in the admissions process for PSI. Fellows interact on an ongoing basis with students in individual and group study and assist in the evaluations of students. PSI fellows are also encouraged to actively engage in research in their field(s) of interest.  For more information about the program, please visit the Perimeter Scholars International page.
