Upcoming conferences listed on the IAMP webpage:
Prof. Ludwig Streit would like to draw your attention to the positions mentioned below available in the International Graduate College "Stochastics and Real World Models"
In the framework of an International Graduate College (International Research Training Group, supported by DFG) we offer fellowships, for a PhD program starting January 1, 2006 (in special cases also from October 2005), for up to 3 years duration.
The program is organized by the Bielefeld University Mathematics Department in cooperation with the Departments of Economics and of Physics, and together with the Chinese Academy of Science in Beijing. Doctorate degrees will be awarded by one of the three Departments of Bielefeld University. The interdisciplinary training and research program is oriented towards the study of modern methods in stochastics and their application in physics and in economics. A structured course program will enable students to undertake research projects without undue delay. Lectures and courses by visiting scientists, as well as the exchange program with China will further contribute to a broad and internationally viable education.
Graduates (Master level) from the aforementioned three fields with a pronounced interest in mathematics and its interdisciplinary applications are encouraged to apply (as a rule candidate should not be older than 28 years).
For further information consult also http://www.physik.uni-bielefeld.de/bibos/college/index.html
Deadline: 30.09.2005. Post-deadline applications may possibly also be considered.
Please submit your application with CV, copies of diplomas and certificates, a sketch of your research interests, and the names and e-mail addresses of two referees, toProf. Dr. Michael Röckner
Bryce DeWitt (1923 – 2004):
Bryce DeWitt died on September 23, 2004 in Austin, TX. He was awarded posthumously the Einstein Prize of the American Physical Society, given to a single individual for outstanding achievement in theory, experiment or observation in the area of gravitational physics. It was presented to Cecile DeWitt-Morette on April 17, 2005 at the meeting of the APS. A special colloquium in honor or Bryce DeWitt took place on April 20, 2005 at The University of Texas at Austin. Professor Luis Alvarez-Guame of CERN was the featured speaker with additional presentations made by Richard L. Hall, Kip S. Thorne, Steven Weinberg, and David Gleeson.
