Description:
Today, there is a small, but growing, number of under-represented minority mathematicians in academia, government laboratories and industry. The third IMA Career Workshop on Minorities and Applied Mathematics will focus on the problems that confront researchers in the early to mid-career stages of their professional development. The workshop will offer tutorials with practical applications and provide opportunities for networking. A limited number of general interest technical talks will be presented. Senior professionals will provide insight on things they wish someone had told them before they left graduate school, some of the surprises they found upon entering the workplace, and how they managed to overcome the difficulties encountered. These talks are intended to provide an operational and constructive framework for direct interaction and discussion among workshop participants. Small breakout groups will allow for further exploration of ideas, which will then be shared with the entire group. In addition, poster sessions will showcase the work of selected attendees. The workshop will target mathematicians at various stages of their careers, including graduate students, recent PhDs, early career folks, as well as, senior scientists.
