Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching) is a professional development program for new and recent Ph.D.s in the mathematical sciences (including pure and applied mathematics, statistics, operations research, and mathematics education). It addresses all aspects of an academic career: improving the teaching and learning of mathematics, engaging in research and scholarship, and participating in professional activities. It also provides the participants with a network of peers and mentors as they assume these responsibilities. In 2014, about 80 faculty members from colleges and universities throughout the country will be selected to participate in a workshop preceding the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) summer meeting, in activities during the summer MAA meetings in 2014 and 2015, and the Joint Mathematics Meetings in January 2015, and in an electronic discussion network. Faculty for whom the 2014-2015 academic year will be the first or second year of full-time teaching (post-Ph.D.) at the college or university level are invited to apply to become Project NExT Fellows.
Applications for the 2014-2015 Fellowship year (the twenty-first year of Project NExT) will be due Friday, April 11, 2014. For more information, see the Project NExT website, http://archives.math.
