Announcement of SMRI Domestic Visitor Program

05 Jun 2020

From the AustMS Secretary Deborah Jackson on behalf of Anthony Henderson, SMRI Executive Director, (smri.exec@sydney.edu.au).

Applications are now open for the new Domestic Visitor Program of the University of Sydney Mathematical Research Institute (SMRI). Complementing our flagship International Visitor Program, this scheme is for researchers in the mathematical sciences from other Australian universities who wish to do research at SMRI, either individually or as part of a group of collaborators. Funding is available for successful applicants who are not based in Sydney.

This application round is for visits of at least 2 weeks within the period 24 August – 18 December 2020. Applications close on Sunday 5 July 2020 and should be sent by email to smri.exec@sydney.edu.au with the information requested in the terms and conditions on the SMRI website:https://sydney.edu.au/smri.

Applications from female and gender-diverse researchers, and from researchers belonging to other groups which are underrepresented in the mathematical sciences, are particularly encouraged. Please direct questions about the conditions to the Institute’s Executive Director Anthony Henderson at smri.exec@sydney.edu.au.
