Membership Categories

Membership of the Society falls in to three categories:

  • Ordinary membership; for academic staff, mathematicians in other occupations and all those with a deep commitment to mathematics and an interest in mathematical research.  

Current subscription rate: £75.00 for 2016-17 valid until 31 October 2017.

  • Reciprocity membership; for those not normally resident in the UK and also members of some overseas mathematical societies. 

Current subscription rate: £37.50 for 2016-17 valid until 31 October 2017.

  • Associate membership; for undergraduates, postgraduates and early career mathematicians who are within three years of completing their PhD. 

Current subscription rate: £18.75 for 2016-17 valid until 31 October 2017.

Further details of each category are given below.

Ordinary Membership is available to:

  • Academic staff of a university or similar institution in the United Kingdom who are substantially engaged in teaching and research in mathematics (including all its diverse applications).
  • Mathematicians in other occupations, whether or not they are currently employed, who have a higher degree in mathematics, or who use mathematics in their work at a comparable level, or whose work would benefit substantially from the Society's activities in promoting and extending mathematical knowledge.
  • All those with a deep commitment to mathematics and an interest in mathematical research.
  • Others whom Council considers to have contributed substantially to the objects of the Society.

Reciprocity Membership is available to:

  • Members of some overseas Mathematical Societies who are not normally resident in the UK. They may join under the terms of various Reciprocity Agreements, although Council reserves the right to consider each application individually. 

The organisations with whom the Society has agreements are:

Associate Membership is available to:

  • Early career mathematicians who are within three years of obtaining their PhD in mathematics (full-time equivalent and excluding any career breaks)
  • Research students who are studying for a PhD in mathematics.
  • Undergraduate students who are studying for a degree in mathematics or a degree with a significant mathematical content.

 

Council also has the authority to elect Honorary Members from distinguished mathematicians who are not normally resident within the United Kingdom.
