Early Career Mathematicians’ Committee: Call for Self-nominations

ECM: Call for Self-nominations

The Early-Career Mathematicians’ (ECM) group of the IMA continues to be a great success with activities and conferences being planned each year.  The group has grown from strength to strength because of the enthusiasm and commitment of the ECM Committee.

Four vacancies on the ECM Committee are available this July, and we are looking for more fun, enthusiastic and committed ECM members to put themselves forward for the committee, and build on the great work that has been achieved so far.

The posts available for election are:

  • Vice Chair and Chair Designate
  • Conference Leader Designate
  • Promotion Leader
  • Engagement Leader

Once elections are complete, the committee has the power to co-opt other people on to the committee.  Therefore, we would also be keen to hear from people who would like to contribute in ways that do not fit into one of the above roles.

If you would like to put yourself forward for the committee, please send the following to Michael Holmes and the Branches Co-ordinator (these will be used in the election process)¹:

  • a short biography
  • a photo
  • what role you would like and why

For reference, you may wish to look at the role outlines, biographies and photos of the current committee on the IMA website at the ECM Committee governance page.

If you would like further information, perhaps about a particular role or the commitment required, please email the Branches Co-ordinator, who will forward your enquiry to the relevant committee member for response.

The deadline for nominations is Thursday 4 May 2017 at 5.00 pm.  All Early-Career Mathematicians² who are members of any grade (e.g. Member, Associate Member, Student Member, etc.) of the IMA are eligible, so get your nominations in ASAP!

We look forward to hearing from you.

Mike Holmes CMath CSci MIMA
