# Post-doctoral Programme

CAMGSD has been offering postdoctoral positions since 1998 and has also been host to many postdocs from other programmes. Calls for applications are published in several sites, including Euraxess and the European Mathematical Society. About 200 applications are submitted and evaluated every year.
