Applications are invited for Abel Visiting Scholarship from students of Developing Countries for pursuing postdoctoral progarmme in mathematics for a period of one month.

Brief Description: The Niels Henrik Abel Board and the International Mathematical Union invite applications from mathematicians professionally based in developing countries to visit an international research collaborator for a period of one month. The period is extendable for up to three months in the case of matching support from the host institution. The program is designed for post doctoral mathematicians in the early stages of their professional careers. It is designed to offer the opportunity for a ‘research sabbatical,’ a necessary complement to teaching and other academic duties for mathematicians desiring to also sustain a viable research program.

Award Includes: The grant will cover health insurance, visa cost, all travel (economy flights or equivalent) and living expenses including accommodation for one month for up to a total maximum amount of USD 5,000 per mathematician.

Study Program: Scholarship is available for pursuing postdoctoral progarmme.

Study Major: Scholarship is awarded in the field of mathematics.

Host Organization: Developing Countries

Eligibility Required? Applicants must
-hold at the time of application a PhD in Mathematics,
-be based in a developing country at the time of application
-hold a position in a university/ research institution
-be in the early stages of their professional careers, more precisely: the applicants should not yet be of full professorial rank but have a working contract in a university/ college and be under 40 years of age at the day of the application deadline.
-Applications from women mathematicians are strongly encouraged.
-The applicant must already have initiated research contact with the proposed international research partner. The collaboration should take place at the international partner’s home institution.
-Therefore for the application deadline of April 30, 2015, applicants should be born on or after April 30, 1975. The maximum age may be increased by up to three years in the case of an individual with a broken career pattern (applicants should be born on or after April, 30, 1972).
