Interdisciplinary Mathematics Preparation And Career Training (IMPACT) Award

April 25, 2014 | Atlanta, GA

Professors Christine Heitsch, Doug Ulmer, Brett Wick and Hao Min Zhou have received a large National Science Foundation Mentoring Through Critical Transition Points (MCTP) grant to support post-docs in the School of Mathematics. This five-year, $1.3M project is called IMPACT (Interdisciplinary Mathematics Preparation And Career Training). It will bring three cohorts of post-docs to Georgia Tech for three-year appointments, providing them with a variety of research, training, and mentoring opportunities centered around interactions between mathematics and other disciplines ("Math+X").
