GAMM Juniors

GAMM Juniors are young researchers and members of the GAMM who have been nominated for the first time out of a number of suggestions of possible candidates for the period 2012-2014.

At the GAMM Annual General Assembly 2011 in Graz, the nomination of young research candidates has been decided. The young research candidates are characterized by an excellent diploma/master and/or PhD thesis in the fields of Applied Mathematics or Mechanics. The first 10 GAMM Juniors have been nominated at the end of 2011 based on the proposals of the GAMM representatives at the different universities.

In each year, 10 new GAMM Juniors are selected out of suggested candidates so that after a starting period of 3 years the group will consist of 30 persons. During the time as GAMM Junior, the GAMM membership fee is waived. After 3 years, the membership as GAMM Junior is terminated automatically. By this means, it is guaranteed that young researchers obtain an additional financial and ideal support in their academic research starting time, that they transfer their knowledge to the next generations of GAMM Juniors and that they pass the organisation of the group to them.


The local GAMM representative send a maximum of two nominations for the Juniors to the GAMM office ( by June 15, every year.

The Commission, which decides on the selection of the Young Researcher Minisymposia, selects the Juniors.

Please submit a resume for each nomination and an assessment of a maximum of 2 pages each.

As GAMM Juniors, candidates can be selected, who graduated with exceptional achievements in their final thesis and/or PhD thesis in the field of Applied Mathematics or Mechanics, and who are younger than 32 years at 15 June of the appropriate year and who’s PhD examination is not older than two years. A deviation from the mentioned timeframe is considered in the selection process in the case of a “broken” biography.
