Opportunities in North America for Ukrainian mathematicians

Можливості в Північній Америці для українських математиків

We are a group of North American mathematicians who would like to help Ukrainian professional mathematicians and students of mathematics, who might consider a visiting position or a study program in the USA or Canada.

This site was developed and active in the Spring of 2022. We were able to help several people to find temporary positions and study programs. As of Fall 2022 the war is still raging, but the number of special "emergency" positions is not as large as one year ago. If you are interested in the regular advertised positions or seeking advice on applying for a study program at a particular university, please don't hesitate to contact our supporters.

Frequently Asked Questions
(as of Spring 2022)

(When?) If the opportunities for positions become available, what is an approximate timeframe?

The most common start dates in the US and Canada are August or September. However, more immediate opportunities may arise.

(Where?) What institutions would offer temporary positions?

The supporters have various ideas on how to create positions within their home institutions and possibly involve their colleagues at other universities. They need your input to act: please fill out the form.

I can't leave Ukraine due to the martial law. Should I still fill out the form or apply for a program for students?


Males 18-60 may be allowed to leave Ukraine if they are doing studies, research, etc. abroad. We are aware that (at the moment of writing; in April) it is still practically hard to cross the border, but hope that this would change with time.

Is Ukrainian affiliation required?

Yes, the initiative supports mathematicians who are currently affiliated with an institution in Ukraine on a permanent basis.

Is Ukrainian citizenship required?
