Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program Announcement
The Faculty of Applied Mathematics of Ivan Franko National University of L’viv (IFNU) and Physico-Mechanical Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine invite U.S. scholars to apply to the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program to join these Ukrainian institutions in the Industrial Applied Mathematics Program (Award # 3351) supported by the Fulbright Program in Ukraine.
These host institutions are seeking internationally-renowned scholars whose research interests are in the fields of mathematical modeling in industrial applications, which include such areas as inverse problems, multi-scale and domain decomposition numerical analysis, parallel computing, etc. In addition to lecturing, involvement in research with the existing research groups of the relevant departments in these Ukrainian institutions is expected, as well as advising on the development of new educational programs (M.Sc. and Ph.D.).
The goal of the program is threefold:
1. to establish at IFNU and formalize a new educational program for the preparation of a Master of Science degree in Mathematical and Computer Modeling;
2. tо develop standards and curriculum for a new Ph.D. program in applied mathematics in addition to upgrading the existing Candidate Degree program;
3. to formulate mathematical problems and develop solutions which employ direct and inverse strategies of interpretation of phenomena that occur or are used in industry.
More information about the Industrial Applied Mathematics Award (# 3351) goals and organization can be found in the project proposal.
The deadline for applications to the Fulbright Scholar Program for the 2015-2016 academic year (Award # 3351) is August 1, 2014. The award will be in effect for 5 years. The term of the position can vary from 3 months to 10 months (one or two semesters). Requirements for applicants and other conditions are specified by the Fulbright U.S. Scholar Program.
