ICERM Board Member Awarded as John von Neumann Lecturer



August 19, 2015
— ICERM Board of Trustees member Jennifer Chayes (Microsoft Research) was named by SIAM as the 2015 John von Neumann Lecturer. This prize, established in 1959, is awarded for outstanding and distinguished contributions to the field of applied mathematical sciences and for the effective communication of these ideas to the community. As the recipient of this prestigious prize, Dr. Chayes was invited to give a lecture at the annual ICIAM meeting. Her talk title was "Once upon a graph: How to get from now to then in massive networks".

Hassett Appointed Next ICERM Director

July 17, 2015 — ICERM is pleased to announce that Dr. Brendan Hassett has been appointed the next Director of ICERM. Before succeeding Jill Pipher in July 2016, he will spend this coming academic year ramping up and getting to know faculty and students in Brown's Department of Mathematics as a full Professor. For more details, see the Brown University press release.

ICERM Announces a New Program





July 15, 2015
— ICERM is pleased to announce a new program for those interested in small group research. Collaborate@ICERM offers teams of 3-6 researchers the to opportunity to spend five days at the institute either during the summer (May-August) or anytime in the month of January. Proposals are now being accepted and will be reviewed by the ICERM Science Board during the November 2015 meeting. More details can be found on our Participate page.



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.

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 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. Details and a link to applications for ICERM's 2016-2017 Postdoctoral Institute Fellowships can be found via MathJobs.org.
  • 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. These postdoctoral researchers are associated with a specific program and are in residence for that semester, supported by a monthly salary and benefit stipend. Details and a link to applications for ICERM's 2016-2017 Postdoctoral Semester Fellowships can be found via MathJobs.org.
  • 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.

Details and a link to applications for ICERM's 2016-2017 Postdoctoral Fellowships are listed on MathJobs.org. 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 before January 4, 2016. 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, small group research (Collaborate@ICERM), and our Summer@ICERM undergraduate research programs. How to propose an Program or Workshop.


Mission Statement

The mission of the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM) is to support and broaden the relationship between mathematics and computation: specifically, to expand the use of computational and experimental methods in mathematics, to support theoretical advances related to computation, and address problems posed by the existence and use of the computer through mathematical tools, research and innovation.
