International Mobility Programme

The International Mobility Programme provides opportunities for Early-Career Researchers and Graduate Students from ACEMS to build their international networks and experience. The programme supports research collaboration with international mathematical and statistical institutes, departments and research groups. The programme is administered by Thomas Taimre, Christopher Drovandi and Claudia Deasy.

The strategic objectives of the programme are:

  1. To build the ACEMS brand internationally as a world leader, renowned for excellence in the mathematical and statistical sciences.
  2. To support student and early career research projects through exposure to diverse ideas and groups from around the world.
  3. To provide opportunities to develop international networks, advance project planning and administrative skills, as well as experience in applying for competitive grants.
  4. To utilise and develop the wide international networks and collaborative partnerships of ACEMS’ mid to senior level academics and provide opportunities for these members to host and co-supervise inbound postgraduate and ECR research projects. ACEMS strongly believes that innovation is better sustained through diversity and opportunity. The International Mobility programme aims to give students and early career academics exposure to new sets of ideas, cultures and experiences. Through this programme ACEMS aims to foster the development of the next generation of internationally connected and diverse thinking world class mathematical and statistical scientists.
