2018 Abel visiting scholar program for Mathematicians from Developing Countries ($5,000 Grant)
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.

In case the length of the visit exceeds one month, the candidate should provide evidence of financial support from the host institution to cover the living expenses beyond the first month.

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.

The Abel Visiting Scholar Program is fully funded by fund IMU – CDC received from the Abel Board.

Usually up to 3 Grants are available per YEAR.

REQUIREMENTS
Applicants must

1. hold at the time of application a PhD in Mathematics,

2. be based in a developing country at the time of application

3. hold a position in a university/ research institution

4. be in the early stages of their professional careers, more precisely: the applicants should

4. 1) not yet be of full professorial rank but have a working contract in a university/ college

4. 2) be under 40 years of age at the day of the application deadline.

The maximum age may be increased by up to three years in the case of an individual with a broken career pattern. This should be noted in the application together with the reason for the broken career pattern.

Applications from women mathematicians are strongly encouraged.

DEFINITION OF “DEVELOPING COUNTRY”
CDC classifies Developing Countries as those with GNI per capita in USD, not exceeding 11,000 USD, in accordance with the United Nations data. (Data as of December 2015) For a list which countries can apply for the Abel Visiting Scholar Program, please go here: CDC DEVELOPING COUNTRY LIST
