IMU 2024 Graduate Research Assistantships in Developing Countries (GRAID)

The International Mathematical Union invites applications from qualified candidates for its 2024 Graduate Research Assistantships in Developing Countries (GRAID).

Through the Graduate Research Assistantships in Developing Countries (GRAID) Programme, emerging research groups operating in developing nations included in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU Definition of Developing Countries can receive modest support to enable their most talented students to pursue a Master’s or PhD in mathematics while working as graduate research assistants full-time, thereby promoting the development of a mathematics community.

Presumably, the nascent research team is in continuous contact with a global mathematician. A team composed of an international partner, the principal investigator, and their research group must submit applications. The International Partner should be a mathematician working in a university or research centre not located in any of the developing nations specified in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU Definition, and the Principal Investigator should be a PhD-holding university professor of mathematics employed at a university or research centre in a developing nation listed in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU Definition.

Duration: 4 years for PhD students and 1 year for Masters students.

Benefits

IMU awards a maximum amount of USD 3,500 per year per graduate research assistant to cover:

  • Accommodation expenses of the graduate research assistant
  • Basic living expenses

Eligibility

Applications for the graduate research assistantships consisting of:

  • The principal investigator is a university professor in mathematics holding a PhD who lives and works in a university or research center in a developing country listed in Priority 1 or 2, who is already training mathematics Master’s or PhD students, and who is part of a research group.
  • The international partner is a mathematician working in a university or research centre not based in any of the countries listed in Priority 1 or 2 of the IMU CDC Definition of Developing Countries.
