2023 Summer Research in Mathematics (SRiM) Program Announcement
MSRI, now becoming the Simons Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute (SLMath) in 2022-23, invites applications for the 2023 Summer Research in Mathematics (SRiM) program. This program provides space, funding, and the opportunity for in-person collaboration to small groups of mathematicians, especially women and gender-expansive individuals, whose ongoing research may have been disproportionately affected by various obstacles including family obligations, professional isolation, or access to funding. Through this effort, SLMath aims to mitigate the obstacles faced by these groups, improve the odds of research project completion, and deepen their research experience.
- Groups of two to six mathematicians with partial results on an established project may submit an application to the program.
- Each member of the group must have a Ph.D. or advanced graduate standing in the mathematical sciences.
- At least one team member must be U.S. based.
- Each group may apply to be in residence at MSRI/SLMath for a minimum of two weeks.
- All members of the group must be in residence for the full duration of the visit.
- Applicants may only apply as a member of one research group.
- Visits for the program must take place between June 5, 2023 to July 14, 2023.
For full program details, visit the website: www.msri.org/summer
Applications will be hosted on MathPrograms starting August 15, 2022 and require a Project Description and bio-sketch of each group member, as well as additional information (see program website for details). Applicants may only apply as a member of one research group. The following support is provided:
- Lodging in spacious and comfortable dorm apartments on the campus of UC Berkeley
- All meals
- Reimbursement of travel expenses to Berkeley
- $1000 per person for post-programmatic travel
- SLMath has access to private sources of funding that makes it possible for researchers who both identify as women and have children to fully participate in its scientific activities. This may be in the form of lodging and reimbursement of travel expenses for children who accompany the member to Berkeley, plus lodging and travel expenses for a caregiver. It may also take the form of reimbursement of additional expenses incurred if the children stay home, thus allowing the member to attend the program.
The deadline for application will be December 1, 2022.
Support for the 2023 Summer Research in Mathematics program is provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Security Agency (NSA), Microsoft Research, Johnson Cha, Priscilla Chou, and Kristin Lauter. MSRI / SLMath has been supported from its origins by the National Science Foundation, now joined by over 100 Academic Sponsor departments, by a range of private foundations, and by generous and farsighted individuals.
