IMU/ CDC welcomes applications by universities and mathematics degree programs in the developing world that are in need of, and can provide the necessary conditions for productive collaboration in the teaching of advanced mathematics. We seek universities interested to host a lecturer for intensive 3-4 week mathematics courses, at the advanced undergraduate or master level. The course given by the volunteer should be part of a regular mathematics undergraduate or master degree program at the hosting university. Also courses for a degree of "Mathematics and Informatics” or similar are admissible. Unfortunately mathematics courses for an undergraduate or Master degree in Engineering or similar degrees are not permissible.
Costs of the lecturer (up to 4,200 EUR) will be covered by IMU/ CDC. The host university will have no financial obligations toward the lecturer.
Role and Requirements for the host university
The course should be
The host university is expected to assign a local mathematics professor who will
The Host Institution is also required to fill out a report form after the visit of the volunteer.
Who decides the course content?
The host university decides the course content and guides the volunteer towards desired syllabus.
List and Database of Volunteers
The CDC List of Lecturers contains a large database of the mathematicians willing to volunteer and includes the mathematician's curriculum vitae (CV), the areas of mathematics in which they are prepared to teach, language abilities, typical dates of availability, and previous experience. If an institution is not yet registered only selected information will be available. Once registered further information is available.
"I am most thankful for the lecturers contribution towards properly operationalizing our MCCSE programs. The Volunteer Lecturer's proposal that we come up with an annual NMAIST conference series is wonderful, and meets my full support. We feel greatly honoured by his stay with us here at NM-AIST, and I am happy to note that he is pleased to be part of the NM-AIST Family."
Burton LM Mwamila, Vice Chancellor NM AIST-Arusha, one of the VLP Host Institutions in 2011
