The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) is an innovative, pan-African centre for post-graduate education, research and outreach which has achieved global recognition since opening in South Africa in 2003. AIMS recruits students from all over Africa for a postgraduate program taught by outstanding international lecturers within an exceptional 24-hour learning environment. The AIMS students have studied mathematical sciences in the broad sense at an African university for 4 years before coming to AIMS.
Launched in 2008 by Neil Turok's TED Prize Wish, the Next Einstein Initiative (AIMS-NEI) seeks to build 15 AIMS centres across the African continent offering the same educational opportunity, creating a pan-African network of centres.
AIMS-NEI is coordinated by a Secretariat located in Claremont, near Cape Town, South Africa. Our team currently consists of a mathematician, a cosmologist, an engineer, an astrophysicist turned accountant and a social scientist, together with partners from across Africa and around the world. We need exceptionally motivated and talented people to join us in making this happen.
