The American Mathematical Society (AMS) invites early-career mathematicians—those who are close to finishing their doctorates or have recently finished— to become part of the Mathematics Research Communities, a professional development program in which the participants develop collaboration skills, build a network focused in an active research domain, and receive mentoring from leaders in that area. This is designed for individuals who are in the period from two years before receiving PhD until five years after completing PhD.

This NSF-supported program includes: Intensive one-week, hands-on summer research conferences for each topic, guidance in career building, special sessions at the AMS-MAA Joint Mathematics Meetings (JMM) in the January following the summer conferences, follow-up small-group collaborations, and longer-term opportunities for collaboration and community building among the participants.
