Endowed Chair in “Mathematics and its Applications”
– Humboldt Cooperation Centre – at the
African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in Senegal
The call addresses academics from any country who demonstrably conduct application-related research in the field of mathematics, have several years’ experience in heading an independent working group or research institute as well as in training students and doctoral candidates. The application must be supported by at least one collaborative partner in Germany.
There was only one call for the endowed chair in “Mathematics and its Applications” at AIMS-Senegal. The deadline for application was 31 May 2012. It is not possible any more to apply for this programme.
The endowed professorship, which is being advertised internationally, is the core of a Humboldt Cooperation Centre designed to help strengthen university education in mathematics and research in Africa, promote networking between AIMS-Senegal and German universities, and support networking amongst the various AIMS centres in Africa.
The German-Senegalese project encompasses two components: Firstly, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation will facilitate the establishment of an endowed chair and finance additional support measures linked to it (Humboldt Cooperation Centre). Furthermore, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) will promote cooperation with German universities and networking amongst the AIMS centres by funding scholarships (academic assistants, mobility).
