Research Networks In The
National Science Foundation
Deadline: November 9, 2010
The Research Networks in the Mathematical Sciences (RNMS) Program creates an award mechanism that supports researchers
in ways that are intermediate in scale, scope, and duration to existing individual investigator awards and research
institute awards. The RNMS Program recognizes that, over the past quarter century, mathematical research has
become increasingly collaborative and interactive, because effectively overcoming core scientific challenges frequently
requires the sharing of ideas and expertise. A Research Network is not a substitute for existing funding mechanisms. In
particular, it is intended to complement (rather than replace) individual investigator awards by providing additional
layers of interaction. Through the involvement of postdoctoral researchers and students and the promotion of international
collaborations, the RNMS will not only focus on problems at the frontier of the mathematical sciences but also
lead to robust and diverse training of the next generation of mathematicians and statisticians.
There are more opportunities in the following categories: Algebra and Number Theory, Analysis, Applied Mathematics,
Computational Mathematics, Foundations, Geometric Analysis, Mathematical Biology, Probability, Statistics, and Topology.
There are also Special Research Programs which can be found on the following website:
