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.
At present we have the following openings:
