2023 ADJOINT Workshop Announced

The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI), now becoming the Simons Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute (SLMath) in 2022-23, invites applications for its 2023 African Diaspora Joint Mathematics Workshop (ADJOINT), taking place June 19-30, 2023 in Berkeley, California.

ADJOINT is a two-week summer activity designed for researchers with a Ph.D. degree in the ADJOINT is a two-week summer activity designed for researchers with a Ph.D. degree in the mathematical sciences who are interested in conducting research in a collegial environment. 

The main objective of ADJOINT is to provide opportunities for in-person research collaboration to U.S. mathematicians, especially those from the African Diaspora, who will work in small groups with research leaders on various research projects.


During the workshop, each participant will conduct research at MSRI within a group of four to five mathematical and statistical scientists under the direction of one of the research leaders. Professional enhancement activities will be provided by the onsite ADJOINT Director. All participants will receive funding for two weeks of lodging, meals and incidentals, and one round-trip travel to Berkeley, CA.  For details of 2023 research topics and leaders, visit msri.org/adjoint.

After the two-week workshop, each participant will have the opportunity to further their research project with the team members including the research leader; have access to funding to attend conference(s) or to meet with other team members to pursue the research project, or to present results; and will become part of a network of research and career mentors.


Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, possess a Ph.D. in the mathematical sciences, and be employed at a U.S. institution.


The guiding principle in selecting participants and establishing the groups is the creation of diverse teams whose members come from a variety of institutional types and career stages. The degree of potential positive impact on the careers of African-Americans in the mathematical and statistical sciences will be an important factor in the final decisions.

MSRI / SLMath has been supported from its origins by the National Science Foundation, now joined by the National Security Agency, over 100 Academic Sponsor departments, by a range of private foundations, and by generous and farsighted individuals. ADJOINT 2023 receives additional support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
