The SIAM Postdoctoral Support Program is made possible by gifts to the SIAM Postdoctoral Support Fund, which was established by Drs. Martin Golubitsky and Barbara Keyfitz. The program provides up to $15,000 in financial support for postdoctoral researchers to work with a mentor from a different institution. The goal is to foster direct research experience and professional development. Up to four postdoc/mentor pairs will be selected annually.
Applicant teams design and describe a mentoring, research, and collaboration plan that works best for them. The application will remain open until annual funding is expended, but the priority deadline for applications is November 1, 2023.
If you’d like to make a contribution to the SIAM Postdoctoral Support Fund, please donate now. If you have any questions about giving to SIAM or would like to learn more about the ways that your gift can make a difference, please contact Abby Addy, Director of Development and Corporate Relations, at [email protected] or (267) 648-3529.
Mentors may work in academia, industry, or government. U.S.-based postdoc/mentor pairs will receive priority at this time.
