IMSI, the Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation, is seeking proposals for its programs and applications for its 2022 internship program.
IMSI Seeks Proposals by March 15, 2022
IMSI is currently seeking proposals for workshops and other scientific activity with a deadline of March 15, 2022. Workshops are intended to be interdisciplinary and focused on a societally-relevant topic for which mathematicians and statisticians can partner with other sciences to make important contributions. IMSI currently has openings for workshops in the winter of 2023 and beyond. Other forms of scientific activity at IMSI include long programs, interdisciplinary research clusters, and research collaboration workshops. Information about how to submit proposals for any of these forms of activity can be found on the proposal overview page and the resources linked there.
IMSI 2022 Summer Internship Program: deadline January 7
Applications are now being accepted for the 2022 IMSI Summer Internship Program. This program is open to Ph.D. students in mathematics or statistics programs in the United States. Women and students from historically underrepresented US minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Participants must be eligible to work in the United States. The program is open to both US and international students based in the US. International students will be responsible for arranging work authorization (e.g. CPT) before starting the program.
The IMSI Summer Internship Program is hosted by the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. It builds on the prior success of the NSF funded PI4 Summer Internship Program, launched in 2014. The program includes an intensive pre-internship training workshop and an interdisciplinary internship placement. Internship hosts will be primarily companies and scientific labs in Champaign-Urbana, Chicago, and the surrounding region.
Internship hosts for the IMSI and PI4 programs in previous years included AbbVie, Ameren, Bud Analytics Lab, Wolfram Research, Caterpillar Data Innovation Lab, among others. Scientific internship hosts included University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign departments of Entomology, Industrial Engineering, and Plant Biology, the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago, the USDA Agricultural Research Service, and more. The deadline to apply is January 7, 2022.
