Elsevier and the University of Oxford have begun a five-year collaboration to develop exceptional research talent in the field of mathematics and data science. KnowledgeSpeak brought this interesting news to our attention in their article, “Elsevier and University of Oxford announce 5-year collaboration to support early career researchers in the field of mathematics and data science.

The initiative will enable five early career researchers from Oxford Mathematics to apply for the internationally competitive three-year Hooke and Titchmarsh Fellowship Program. Through this fellowship scheme the selected post-doc researchers are provided with opportunities to work alongside and learn from globally-distinguished academics.

In addition, Oxford Mathematics will host a series of meetings and workshops which will bring together researchers from other UK and international institutions to engage on topics ranging from data science to fundamental problems in geometry and number theory.

Professor Martin Bridson, Head of the Mathematical Institute at University of Oxford, said: “We are extremely grateful to Elsevier for this generous contribution to Oxford Mathematics. Postdoctoral fellowships provide invaluable opportunities to researchers embarking on academic careers. Thanks to this donation, five outstanding early career mathematicians will be supported as they pursue some of the most exciting questions in mathematics.”
