This multi-organization partnership works to connect mathematical scientists in business, industry, government, and academia through various channels and efforts, with an emphasis on building job opportunities and increasing knowledge about internships.
These summer workshops, hosted by SIAM and local organizers, teach graduate students to put their skills to the test by tackling real-world problems. GSMMC is a four-day summer training experience focused on graduate- and advanced undergraduate-level training and career development. The MPI Workshop is a gathering held annually the week immediately following the GSMMC that brings together researchers in the mathematical sciences and representatives from industry looking for mathematical insight into their R&D projects.
The Gene Golub Summer School offers free graduate-level summer schools in applied mathematics, computational science, and industrial mathematics for up to 50 doctoral students. This program happens every summer and is free to attending students.
In this contest for high school juniors and seniors and sixth form students, students experience what it’s like to work as a team to tackle a real-world problem under time and resource constraints, akin to those faced by professional mathematicians working in industry. The Challenge is rigorously judged over multiple rounds, awards $100,000+ (> £75,000) in scholarships annually, and is entirely Internet-based with no registration or participation fees.
The MGB-SIAM Early Career Fellowship recognizes the achievements of early career applied mathematicians–particularly those belonging to racial and ethnic groups historically excluded from the mathematical sciences in the United States—and provides support for professional activities and career development. The fellowship reflects a joint commitment by Mathematically Gifted & Black (MGB) and SIAM to promote long-term engagement of fellows within SIAM and continued success within the wider applied mathematics and computational sciences community.
PIC Math is a program of SIAM and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) aiming to increase awareness among mathematical sciences faculty and students about non-academic career options, provide research experience working on real problems, and prepare students for industrial careers. Support is provided by the National Science Foundation.
The SIAM Postdoctoral Support Program was established using generous gifts made to the SIAM Postdoctoral Support Fund. The program provides up to $15,000 in financial support for postdocs to work with a mentor from a different institution. The goal is to foster direct research collaboration and professional development. Up to four postdoc/mentor pairs will be selected annually beginning Summer 2023.
This program enables post-doctoral fellows and early career researchers to be strong advocates for federal investments in applied mathematics and computational science. Three to five fellowship recipients will be selected each year to serve two-year terms that include in person and remote training; attending the biannual SIAM Committee on Science Policy Meetings in Washington, D.C.; interfacing with federal officials; and participating in an advocacy day on Capitol Hill.
The SIAM-Simons Undergraduate Summer Research Program will establish five sites across the United States for a six-week summer program of research and learning in applied mathematics and computational science. Each site will consist of one faculty member mentoring two students who will learn how to conduct scientific research, effectively communicate mathematics and computational science principles, and will gain an improved understanding of how they can pursue a career in applied mathematics and computational science.
The SIAM Visiting Lecturer Program (VLP) provides the SIAM community with a roster of experienced and inspirational applied mathematicians and computational scientists in industry, government, and academia, who can speak on topics that are of interest to developing professional mathematicians.
Many SIAM Activity Groups host virtual webinars and seminars focused on topics related to their community. These events are free to attend and simply require signing up in advance via Zoom to join live. Visit respective activity group pages to learn more about what each group offers. All recordings are posted on SIAM’s YouTube channel afterwards.
The Tondeur Initiatives, funded by Philippe and Claire-Lise Tondeur, is a collaboration with sister societies of SIAM to create programs providing support to mathematicians interested in careers in business, industry, and government.
