Mathematics is becoming increasingly important for addressing many of the critical economic, environmental, and human health related challenges that our nation is currently facing. Therefore, the education and training of a diverse mathematical workforce capable of boldly developing new mathematical theories and profoundly understanding eminent scientific discoveries is of the highest national priority.
This new series of workshops is designed to cultivate a diverse community of existing and aspiring mathematical scientists to meet this challenge. The overall goal of the series is to familiarize people who have not been well represented in the mathematical sciences with professional opportunities in academia, industry, and government; as well as to help young researchers find jobs and mentors within the profession through networking. This first workshop in the series addresses the professional advancement of underrepresented minorities in the mathematical sciences. It will also include an introduction to mathematics represented in the MSRI research programs aimed at faculty in minority serving and primarily undergraduate institutions. Anyone who will be seeing employment in mathematics within the next couple of years would benefit from attending this workshop.
To apply for funding, you must register by the funding application deadline displayed above.
Students, recent Ph.D.'s, women, and members of underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. Funding awards are typically made 6 weeks before the workshop begins. Requests received after the funding deadline are considered only if additional funds become available.
A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hotel Durant. Reservations may be made by calling 1-800-238-7268. When making reservations, guests must request the MSRI preferred rate.
