Turning Numbers into Art

April 5, 2017 — A great article was written for The Conversation by Frank Farris about ICERM's 2016 "Illustrating Mathematics" workshop. A semester program devoted to this topic was recently approved by our science board. More details to come!

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. Apply to upcoming programs with Cube.

Workshop Participants

ICERM workshops, both semester and topical, provide other opportunities for participation in our activities. Funding for workshop participation is limited. Apply to upcoming workshops with Cube. 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 15-20 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 typically 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 2017 program.

ICERM welcomes applications from graduate students who wish to spend between 6 weeks and one semester at ICERM to participate in one of our semester-long programs. ICERM will provide workspace, shared computers, and lockers; ICERM offers support for travel to the institute and local accommodations. The research interest of visiting graduate students 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 and space remain available.

If you are interested in applying to attend a workshop, you will need to request that your advisor submit a statement of support. Graduate students who present a poster at an ICERM workshop are typically awarded funding for local accommodations.

Apply to upcoming programs using Cube.

ICERM brings early-career mathematicians to the institute in order to support and expand their research and to create lasting career collaborations and connections. There are three ways to participate as a Postdoctoral Fellow in an ICERM semester program:

  • Postdoctoral Institute Fellows: The institute funds two academic-year postdoctoral positions that include a stipend and benefits. Each 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. Applications for the 2018-2019 positions will open on Mathjobs.org in summer 2017.
  • Postdoctoral Semester Fellows: These postdoctoral researchers are associated with a specific program and are in residence for that semester, supported by a monthly stipend and benefits. Applications for the 2018-2019 positions will open on Mathjobs.org in summer 2017.
  • Postdoctoral Visitors: Postdoctoral researchers with support from their home institutions can apply for travel and/or lodging support to participate in an ICERM semester program. Go to ICERM's "Cube" system to apply.

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.

Applications for the 2018-2019 Postdoctoral Institute and Semester fellowships will be accepted on Mathjobs.org. Applicants will be 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 by early January 2018. Review of applications will commence in early January 2018. Priority will be given to applications received before January 5, 2018.

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, small group research (Collaborate@ICERM), and our Summer@ICERM undergraduate research programs. How to propose an Program or Workshop.
