Mathematics Wins NSF Grant
The Department of Mathematics has been awarded a National Science Foundation grant titled “Alliance for Building Faculty Diversity in the Mathematical Sciences” that will fund postdoctoral fellowships to new Ph.D.s for a period of up to three years. The program specifically targets minority candidates. A typical three-year postdoctoral fellow will spend one year at a national institute and two years at a university. Alliance universities are Arizona State University, Howard University, Iowa Alliance (University of Iowa and Iowa State University), NC State, the University of Arizona and the University of Nebraska. The project is under the direction of Dr. Aloysius Helminck, head of the NC State Department of Mathematics.
