2017 Kalman Visiting Fellowship


This Fellowship will be awarded annually to a 'rising star' in mathematics and its applications to visit the University of Auckland and to participate in the intellectual life of the University.

The Kalman Visiting Fellow will be expected to engage with staff and students in the host Department, and to present at least one seminar. The Fellowship is worth NZD$10000, and can be spent on travel, accommodation, or other associated expenses.

This Fellowship is named after John Kalman, who was a professor of Mathematics at the University of Auckland from 1964 to 1993, and a leading promoter of New Zealand mathematics. The Fellowship is generously supported by a grant from the Margaret and John Kalman Charitable Trust.

Mathematicians within 10 years of receiving their PhD are encouraged to apply now for the Kalman Visiting Fellowship, for a visit in the period October 2016 - September 2017.
