The mission of the Division of Applied Mathematics rests on research, education, and scholarship. We focus our research and teaching on a wide range of areas from applied and algorithmic problems to the study of fundamental mathematical questions. In particular, we explore the connections between mathematics and its applications in biology, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, neuroscience, physics and other disciplines at the research and educational levels. Our educational efforts are realized primarily through our graduate PhD program and our four undergraduate concentrations.
The Division of Applied Mathematics is currently inviting applicants for two positions: An Assistant Professorship in numerical analysis and scientific computing as well as a Prager Assistant Professorship. Both have a start date of July 1, 2016.
A special event entitled, "Theory, Algorithms and Applications of Dissipative Particle Dynamics," will take place September 21 - 23, 2015 at Shanghai University. This workshop will focus on the exciting field of mesoscopic science, a science which bridges the microscopic and the macroscopic worlds. What has become one of the most widely used methods for mesoscopic modeling is dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) which is a course-grained system for mesoscopic simulations. Professors and experts who have made significant contributions to this field are invited to give featured talks.
This year's Brown-ICERM-Kobe summer school will take place from August 17 - 31, 2015. The program fosters not only individual instruction and mentoring in the realm of scientific computing, but offers an intensive research experience centered on collaboration and team work. Students from culturally rich and diverse backgrounds are offered the unique opportunity to share and further develop their talents for a mutually enriching and global learning experience.
Effective Mentoring: The Graduate School highlights how the role of a mentor can make all the difference in the life of a graduate student.
