Postdoctoral Program

Zorn Post-Doctoral Positions

The Department of Mathematics maintains an active post-doctoral program. Initiated in 1993, the department seeks new Zorn Postdoctoral Fellows on an annual basis. The program is named after the renowned algebraist Max Zorn, a beloved faculty member in Bloomington from 1946 until his death in 1993. Positions are announced on MathJobs
