The Niels Henrik Abel Board and the International Mathematical Union invite applications from mathematicians professionally based in developing countries to visit an international research collaborator for a period of one month. The period is extendable for up to three month in the case of matching support from the host institution.
The program is designed for post doctoral mathematicians in the early stages of their professional careers.
It is designed to offer the opportunity for a ‘research sabbatical,’ a necessary complement to teaching and other academic duties for mathematicians desiring to also sustain a viable research program.
The grant will cover health insurance, visa cost, all travel (economy flights or equivalent) and living
expenses including accommodation for one month for up to a total maximum amount of USD 5,000 per mathematician.
Applicants must hold a PhD in Mathematics and be in the early stages of their professional careers. This means that the applicant should be under 40 years on July 1st 2013 and not yet of full professorial rank.
The maximum age may be increased by up to three years in the case of an individual with a broken career pattern.
Applications from women mathematicians are strongly encouraged.
The applicant should already have initiated research contact with the proposed international research partner. The collaboration should take place at the international partner’s home institution.
Applications must be received at least four months before the desired starting date. The selection committee will review the applications and award fellowships every four months.
The following deadlines apply:
August 1, 2013 for research visits starting December 1st 2013 and later
December 1, 2013 for research visits starting April 1st 2014 and later
April 1st 2014 for research visits starting August 1st 2014 and later
Each application must include:
- Curriculum vitae including a list of recent publications
- Research plan for the visit
- Schedule of research stay
- Official invitation from the institution of the international research partner
- One letter of recommendation
