Women at the Intersection of Mathematics and High Energy Physics

Workshop: Women at the Intersection of Mathematics and High Energy Physics
 
6-10 March 2017
Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics, Johannes Gutenberg University
Europe/Berlin timezone
 

In this meeting, we plan to bring together mathematical physicists who are specialized in mathematical aspects of quantum field theory, quantum gravity, and string theory. The workshop will focus on four intertwined pillars:

  1. Locality and observables,
  2. Symmetry and duality,
  3. String compactifications,
  4. Numbers and singularities.

Besides providing an opportunity to exchange knowledge at the frontier between theoretical high energy physics and mathematics, this Topical Workshop will bring together a still underrepresented minority of excellent women, with the aim to foster equal opportunities by networking and improving their visibility within the scientific community.

Starts 6 Mar 2017 08:00
Ends 10 Mar 2017 19:00

Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program

Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program

The Hanna H. Gray Fellows Program seeks to increase diversity in the biomedical research community by recruitment and retention of individuals from groups underrepresented in the life sciences. Through their successful careers as academic scientists, Hanna H. Gray Fellows will move science forward and inspire the next generation of scientists from America’s diverse talent pool. The Institute will select and support up to 15 Fellows in this first competition, which is now open for applications.

Fellows will receive funding for their postdoctoral training and, if eligible, in their early career years as independent faculty. The program includes opportunities for career development, including mentoring and active involvement in the HHMI scientific community.
