The IMA is currently accepting applications for its New Directions Research Professorships. These professorships provide researchers in the mathematical sciences—typically mid-career faculty at U.S. universities— an extraordinary opportunity to branch into new directions and increase the impact of their research. Participants spend an academic year immersed in the thematic program at the IMA, where they learn new mathematics and applications, connect their research with important problems, and establish new contacts and collaborations. IMA support, in the form of a subcontract to the home institution, will be for up to 50% of 2014-2015 salary with a maximum of $50,000 for the entire nine- to 12-month visit.
If you are interested in visiting the IMA during the 2014-2015 year on Discrete Structures: Analysis and Applications or the 2015-2016 year on Control Theory and its Applications, please apply online. Applications are due by February 2014.
