Research in Pairs

Permanent call
Deadline July 31, 2023

 Applications are welcome for stays at the CRM aiming to carry out collaborative research work of a small team of people, consisting of:

· A principal investigator, staying at the CRM for a quarter or a semester.

· One or two collaborators, staying at the CRM for at least one month.

Researchers from Catalan universities can apply as principal investigators if they are free from teaching duties during the period of their stay at the CRM.

Office space and working facilities will be provided by the CRM, as well as assistance with finding accommodation, if necessary. Support for housing expenses at Vila Universitària can be requested.

Visitors of CRM are expected to deliver a talk or mini-course with a short introduction to their research area during their stay at CRM, to be advertised to the mathematical community and graduate students in particular.

It will be greatly appreciated that the participants of a Research in pairs activity provide written results of the research developed in form of a contribution to the CRM preprints collection or a CRM documents contribution.

Applications can be submitted at any time between 6 and 12 months before the start of the desired stay.

Visits should be carried out during the academic year (from September to July).

Decisions will be taken by the CRM no later than three months after submission of the application.

In the case of stays for collaborative work with researchers from Universitat de Barcelona (UB), the visit can be cofinanced by the Institute of Mathematics (IMUB) and a part of the visitors’ stay can be hosted by IMUB. In such cases a proposed timetable should be specified in the application.

To apply to the call, applicants must fill out the application form and attach the following documents:

· An expression of interest

· A Research plan to develop at the CRM (maximum one page)

· A CV (including the list of publications) from the principal investigator and all the collaborators.
