Support for Mathematicians from Ukraine

The Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+ and the SFB/TRR 109 “Discretization in Geometry and Dynamics” are offering support for mathematicians from academic institutions in Ukraine, who have recently left the country due to the ongoing Russian attack on Ukraine.

The special fellowship program is an offer for refugees from Ukraine in the Berlin area (or also in Munich in the case of the SFB/TRR 109), who hold a master’s degree or higher in mathematics or a closely related field and have pursued mathematical research at a university or other academic institution in Ukraine within the past year (exceptions to this one-year rule may apply due to parental leave etc.). The aim of the program is to enable refugees to continue their research and start new collaborations at one of the participating mathematics institutes: FU Berlin, HU Berlin, and TU Berlin, LMU or TU Munich as well as the non-university institutes Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) and Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB). A fellowship comes with a monthly stipend for 3-6 months to cover the cost of living in or around Berlin. The stipend is roughly between 1400 and 2400 Euro per month, depending on qualification and family situation.
