About

This Fellowship is named after John Kalman, who was a professor of Mathematics at the University of Auckland from 1964 to 1993, and a leading promoter of mathematics in New Zealand. The Fellowship is generously supported by a grant from the Margaret and John Kalman Charitable Trust.

This prestigious visiting position is awarded each year to an early career academic to enable them to visit the University of Auckland for a period of several weeks. The Kalman Visiting Fellow would be a faculty member of another University.

The purpose of the Kalman Visiting Fellowship is to enable a “rising star” in mathematics and its applications to visit the University of Auckland and to participate in the intellectual life of the University. The Visiting Fellow would be expected to participate in, and contribute to, research activity, give seminars and engage in informal discussions on research topics with staff and students in the Department of Mathematics (and other Departments within the Faculty of Science and University as appropriate).
