Atiyah UK-Lebanon Fellowships

As a lasting memorial to Sir Michael Atiyah,  the LMS Council is pleased to announce the Atiyah UK-Lebanon Fellowships. These Fellowships are designed to facilitate a two-way visiting programme for mathematicians between the UK and the Lebanon. Michael Atiyah's father was Lebanese, and he retained strong links with the country throughout his life.  

The Fellowship scheme will be operated in partnership with the Centre for Advanced Mathematical Sciences, at the American University of Beirut (AUB). It provides for an established UK based mathematician to visit the Lebanon for a period of at least a week, up to a maximum of 6 months, or alternatively for a mathematician from the Lebanon of any level, in particular promising advanced level MSc or PhD students from the AUB, to visit the UK to further their study or research for a period of up to 12 months. One or more Fellowships may be awarded in any one academic year as funds allow.

Further details and application forms are available here  Applications will open on December 15th, 2019. The closing date for awards to be held in the academic year 2020-21 is 31 January, 2020.
