For meetings changes and assistance with your teaching and research during this time.
In collaboration with SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) we're producing a series of live web-based interviews by graduate students, for graduate students interested in learning about career possibilities in BIG settings (business, entrepreneurship, industry, government, nonprofits, etc.). Mathematicians who work in these arenas will be interviewed by one of the 2020 hosts.
Our next interview with Dr. Helen Moore, Director of Applied Mathematics, Applied BioMath who will be interviewed by host Sarah Minucci, was postponed from its original date of Wednesday, March 18, 2020. The interview will now be held Wednesday April 22 at 3:00pm EDT. Register to watch the interview.
The first interview took place on November 13, 2019 with Dr. Sumanth Swaminathan, Co-founder and CEO of Iterex Therapeutics, interviewed by host Sarah Minucci. Watch: "Talking “BIG” Jobs with Sumanth Swaminathan."
The second conversation was on January 15, 2020 with Dr. Stephanie Fitchett, Data Scientist at Transamerica, with questions by host Katie Waddle. Watch: "Talking "BIG" Jobs with Dr. Stephanie Fitchett, Data Scientist at Transamerica." The edited version is forthcoming.
The AMS BIG Career Development (ABCD) Workshops at AMS sectional meetings provide networking, informational sessions with BIG people, resume consultations, and other activities.
ABCD Workshops are being planned for the Spring 2020 Southeastern and Eastern Sectionals. They are:
