NB: This is a slightly edited repost from about a year ago. ‘Tis the season: applications to our PhD program in mathematics are in (500+ this year, again), and the delicate process starts, at the end of which we will be richer with a dozen or two of bright graduate students. Here’s what is going
A week or so ago I asked Math graduate students the following: The Climate, Equity and Inclusion Committee of the department of mathematics wants to ask the Office for Access and Equity to conduct mandatory in-person anti-sexual harassment training workshops. For now, it is intended just for the incoming graduate students in our program. This
Update (12.7.23): The University’s budget request for the next year includes $40 million in “cost escalations” for the Altgeld/Illini Halls project. I understand these funds are coming on top of the planned $192 million. To bring some context, these money would be enough to fund increasing the salaries of our graduate students by 50% for
2. Around Arrow published, – a riveting tale of cold war planning, trans-Atlantic rivalries, RAND corporation characters, lack of social networks in 1950-ies, and the ensuing non-emergence of applied topology half a century ago, – all there. No, really.
American Mathematical Society is the dominant professional organization for mathematicians working in research-active places, – mostly, departments of mathematics with PhD programs. This is a large organization, counting around 30 thousands members (this includes however folks outside of the US, retirees, and many others). AMS is doing many things that other professional organizations do: it
A survey of the remunerations of graduate students in math PhD programs in public universities initiated and conducted by Hans Christianson, the Director of Graduate Studies at UNC at Chapel Hill is in, and the results are not hugely surprising. With a few exceptions, the (adjusted for cost of living) yearly stipends are pretty comparable,
