Mathematics Research Communities, American Mathematical Society
About the Mathematics Research Communities:
Mathematics Research Communities (MRC), a program of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), nurtures early-career mathematicians--those who are close to finishing their doctorates or have recently finished--and provides them with opportunities to build social and collaborative networks through which they can inspire and sustain each other in their work.
The structured program is designed to engage and guide all participants as they start their careers. For each topic,the program includes a one-week summer conference; a Special Session at the next Joint Mathematics Meetings; and a longitudinal study of early career mathematicians.
The summer conferences of the MRC are held in the scenic mountain setting of the Snowbird Resort, Utah, where participants can enjoy the natural beauty and a collegial atmosphere. Those accepted into this program will receive support (full room and board at the Snowbird Resort and up to $650 in airfare) for the summer conference, and will be partially supported for their participation in the
Joint Mathematics Meetings which follow in January 2018.
Individuals within one to two years prior to the receipt of their PhDs, or up to five years after receipt of their PhDs, are welcome to apply. The MRC program is open to individuals who are U.S. citizens as well as to those who are affiliated with U.S. institutions. A few international participants may be accepted. Women and underrepresented minorities are especially encouraged to apply. All participants are expected to be active in the full MRC program.
For any program, fellowship, prize or award that has a maximum period of eligibility after receipt of the doctoral degree, the selection committee may use discretion in making exceptions to the limit on eligibility for candidates whose careers have been interrupted for reasons such as family or health. Therefore, an applicant who has had to slow down or temporarily stop his or her career for personal reasons may request to be considered for an extension in the amount of time after the PhD degree. Please send exception requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
