Oxford University SIAM Chapter at the Science-Careers
A recent article in the journal Science highlights how early-career academics can hone a wide range of non-research skills through grass roots initiatives, including the establishment of local chapters, as the Oxford University SIAM Student Chapter currently chaired by Hermes Gadêlha, and part of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). The Chapter is run by a committee of graduate and undergraduate students from the University of Oxford, with support from Mason Porter, the Faculty Advisor, and it is sponsored by industrial partners, the SIAM and the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford.
About the Chapter
The Oxford University SIAM Student Chapter is a society devoted to facilitating engagement between the University of Oxford’s international applied mathematics community and industry through conferences, workshops, competitions, prizes and other events. The Chapter was founded in January 2008, and it is now one of the largest chapters worldwide with members including undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty and industry.
