Each summer Clemson University will host a one-week Early Career Research Workshop (ECRW) in Coding Theory, Cryptography, and Number Theory, aimed at postdocs and junior faculty. Three prominent researchers that have demonstrated success in mentoring postdocs will be invited to lead research teams consisting of postdocs and junior faculty (and possibly advanced graduate students when appropriate.) This workshop will help postdocs and junior faculty foster new collaborations and expand their existing research programs, both essential ingredients to launching and maintaining a healthy research program.


We will fund 9 participants for the ECRW with up to $500 for travel, per diem at $25/day for 6 days, and accommodations at $100/night for 5 nights. The funding is restricted to citizens or permanent residents of the US.


June 11-15, 2018.
