Opportunities

 

 

Semester Program Visitors

ICERM welcomes applications for semester program visitors who wish to spend between 2 weeks and one semester at ICERM to participate in one of our semester-long programs. The research interest of semester program visitors should relate to the semester program. Applications may be submitted at any time until the end of the semester program and will be considered as long as funds remain available. To apply, please submit the online application form for semester program visitors.
Workshop Participants

ICERM workshops, both semester and topical, provide other opportunities for participation in our activities. Funding for workshop participation is limited. To apply, please submit the online application form for workshop participants. Decisions about online applications are typically made 1-3 months before the workshop.

Each year ICERM runs Summer@ICERM, an undergraduate research program that spans eight weeks. Our program involves approximately 14-16 undergraduate students who work in groups of two or three, supervised by faculty advisors and aided by teaching assistants. Travel within the U.S. and lodging expenses are paid for, and every participant receives a $3,000 stipend (Brown students receive an UTRA grant in lieu of the S@I stipend). Proposals for undergraduate research programs are chosen competitively, and undergraduates need to apply to participate. Click here for details about the summer 2015 program.

Applications for the 2016 Summer@ICERM program will open in Fall 2015.

Each semester program has funds available to provide partial support for 8-10 graduate students to stay at the institute for a full semester. Graduate students are matched with senior mentors, as well as with postdoctoral fellows who will serve as peer mentors. Activities targeted at graduate students include a graduate-student/postdoctoral research seminar, hands-on tutorials, lecture series by senior program participants, and other professional development activities. To apply, please submit the online application form for graduate students.

 

ICERM's postdoctoral program brings early career mathematicians to the institute in order to support and expand their research and to create lasting career collaborations and connections. Two types of postdoctoral fellows are supported:

 

  • Postdoctoral Institute Fellows: The institute funds two academic-year postdoctoral positions which are salaried positions that come with a benefit stipend. Each Institute Institute Postdoc is a research participant in one of the semester programs planned for that academic year, and remains at the institute during the alternate semester as a researcher-in-residence.
  • Postdoctoral Fellows: The institute supports four postdoctoral fellows per semester. These postdoctoral researchers are associated with a specific program and are in residence for that semester, supported by a monthly salary and benefit stipend.

Each postdoctoral researcher is paired with a senior long-term participant to ensure mentoring and professional guidance. The institute provides a range of professional development activities for postdoctoral researchers and graduate students. A weekly graduate student/postdoctoral seminar facilitates peer connections between graduate student researchers and postdoctoral researchers. Further information can be found here.

Details and a link to applications for ICERM's 2016-2017 Postdoctoral Fellowships will be listed on MathJobs.org in late summer 2015. For full consideration, applicants are expected to submit an AMS Standard Cover Sheet, curriculum vitae (including publication list), cover letter, research statement, and three letters of recommendation via Mathjobs.org. Review of applications will commence in early January 2016.

ICERM encourages proposals for programs that support its mission to foster and broaden the relationship between mathematics and computation. We welcome your ideas for semester programs, topical workshops, early career researcher IdeaLabs, and our Summer@ICERM undergraduate research programs. How to propose an Program or Workshop.
