Free access to all Elsevier material for postdocs between jobs

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on July 8, 2013

If you are a postdoctoral researcher between jobs, you can apply for free access to all Elsevier/ScienceDirect scholarly articles here. It seems like all you need is a letter on official letterhead from your last institution, and what you (might?) get is free access for a 6-month period, with a personal access code. Note that you have to apply before Aug 31st! Probably this is something they’re experimenting with partly in response to criticism and boycott, but regardless of your opinion on Elsevier and the boycott debate, access to “their” articles might be useful.

A long list of postdoc opportunities

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on June 7, 2012

Having been through the process of finding and applying for postdoc positions in Europe over the last couple of years, here is now the big list that I wished someone had given me a few years ago.

Postdoc opportunities in France

Posted by Andreas Holmstrom on January 25, 2011

I found my current job in Bordeaux thanks to this blog post of Minhyong Kim, and will now try to make someone else a similar favour.

Firstly, there are postdoc positions at INRIA advertised here. The subject area is computer science and applied mathematics, but I know that in the past this has included computational arithmetic geometry. If anyone is interested, I can put you in touch with someone at the maths department here in Bordeaux who has hired math postdocs via INRIA before (am hesitant to post his name and email address here without his permission). Just leave a comment or send me an email.

Secondly, there is some European Union money for a number of postdoc positions in the Aquitaine region. As far as I understand, the first step towards an application is to contact a potential host researcher, for example at the IMB.
