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 1 March — 26 July 2021. Applications close on Monday 30 November 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 at 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 .
