NSF Program: Enriched Doctoral Training in the Mathematical Sciences

From the NSF: 

A new NSF program solicitation is available: Enriched Doctoral Training in the Mathematical Sciences (EDT).

The long-range goal of the Enriched Doctoral Training in the Mathematical Sciences (EDT) program is to strengthen the nation’s scientific competitiveness by increasing the number of well-prepared U.S. citizens, nationals, and permanent residents who pursue careers in the mathematical sciences and in other professions in which expertise in the mathematical sciences plays an increasingly important role. The EDT program will support efforts to enrich research training in the mathematical sciences at the doctoral level by preparing Ph.D. students to recognize and find solutions to mathematical challenges arising in other fields and in areas outside today’s academic setting. Graduate research training activities supported by EDT will prepare participants for a broader range of mathematical opportunities and career paths than has been traditional in U.S. mathematics doctoral training.

Please see this NSF program page for details.

NSF program in Computational and Data-Enabled Science and Engineering

Breakthroughs in computational resources and digital datasets are revolutionizing scientific research, with the past three decades having seen advances of about nine orders of magnitude in computing capability, along with deep advances in computational algorithms. These developments are enabling computational and multiscale simulations of unprecedented breadth and accuracy, and simultaneous progress in digital data collection technology is resulting in enormous datasets being generated routinely by scientific experiments and observations of natural phenomena. Thus a a scientific revolution is unfolding in the scope, use, and production of data. Read the rest of this entry »

Employment Opportunities for Program Directors at NSF’s Division of Mathematical Sciences

The Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS), within the Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences, National Science Foundation (NSF), announces a nationwide search for mathematical sciences professionals to fill Program Director positions:

NSF Program Directors bear the primary responsibility for carrying out the Agency’s overall mission. To discharge this responsibility requires not only knowledge in the appropriate disciplines, but also a commitment to high standards, a considerable breadth of interest and receptivity to new ideas, a strong sense of fairness, good judgment, and a high degree of personal integrity.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. or equivalent training in a field of the mathematical sciences, a broad knowledge of one of the relevant disciplinary areas of the Division of Mathematical Sciences, a knowledge of the general scientific community, skill in written communication and preparation of technical reports, an ability to communicate orally, and several years of successful independent research normally expected of the academic rank of associate professor or higher. Some administrative experience and experience working in teams are desirable. Appointees are expected to function effectively both within specific programs and as a member of crosscutting and interactive teams. Skills in multidisciplinary research are highly desirable.
