PIMS-Europe (CNRS UMI #3069) is announcing a new program, the PIMS-Europe Fellowships, with the goal of developing and supporting research collaborations between mathematical scientists at PIMS member universities and researchers across France. 
These fellowships will champion a mutual exchange of knowledge and talent while encouraging cross-ocean research on the frontline of the Mathematical Sciences.
Fellowship awardees will receive CAD $5,000 to facilitate long-term visits to France.
Fellowship Parameters:
  • Fellowships are eligible to ALL mathematical scientists with faculty positions at PIMS member universities.
  • PIMS-Europe Fellows are expected to spend at least two continuous months working on collaborative research in France. PIMS encourages longer visits.
  • Application Deadline: October 15, 2019
Applications MUST include:
