With the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) is offering promising young researchers from Africa and its Diaspora attractive career opportunities at its pioneering Quantum Leap Africa (QLA) Research Centre in Rwanda.
Outstanding Data Scientists will be given the opportunity to establish research teams of their own at QLA via the AIMS-Carnegie Research chairs program.
The AIMS-Carnegie Research chairs program recognises outstanding talent and creative research approaches in data science with exceptional conditions: With an award amount of up to 1.5 million USD each winner receives valuable starting capital to spend five years pursuing an innovative research project at QLA. This is without administrative constraints as they will be supported by an excellent administrative team which will allow them to focus on their research. In addition, the establishment of their own research team, including postdocs and PhD students, will enable the chairs to lay an important foundation for a promising academic career at a very early stage.
Outstandingly qualified young academics in data science from abroad who completed their doctorate less than ten years ago are eligible to apply for the AIMS-Carnegie Research chairs program. Exceptional candidates are encouraged to submit applications immediately after finishing their doctoral studies. Two awards are expected to be granted.Applications must be submitted by September 31, 2018.
We would be grateful if you would disseminate this announcement at your institution and also ask your colleagues to draw the attention of appropriately qualified research talents within their network to this academic award.
