Prospective Faculty - Young Researchers Meet

Young Researchers Meet (Mathematics and Computer Science)

Established academic institutions like IISc have a requirement for outstanding faculty in mathematics, computer science and allied areas such as computational science. Further, a large number of new Indian Institutes of Science Education & Research (IISERs), IITs and Central Universities have been started recently in India. Put together, the total requirement for faculty members in the above areas is quite substantial. In view of this, it is proposed to organize a Young Researchers Meet at Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA from May 15-16, 2010. The primary goal of this meeting is to inform junior faculty, post-docs and senior graduate students in the US about academic opportunities available in India and motivate them to return to India. A delegation from India representing a wide cross-section of institutes/universities will make presentations on various aspects of an academic career in India.

This meeting is funded by the Department of Science and Technology, India and the Indo-US Science and Technology Forum.

All interested persons are requested to send a mail to yrmbrown@dam.brown.edu including their CV and a one-page research statement (in PDF format) on or before March 15, 2010. If you need travel support to attend this meeting, please indicate this in your cover letter. Based on the applications received, a maximum of 50 participants in the areas of mathematics and computer science will be selected for participation. Selected participants would be given an opportunity to make brief 5-10 minute presentations on their research work so that a dialogue can be initiated between the participants and the academic institutions in India.
