Young African Mathematician (YAM) Fellowship Programme

The mission of the YAM programme is to provide fellowships for talented and motivated young African mathematicians at a master’s level who wish to gain research experience in a subject of their interest in mathematics. Through immersing themselves in the activities at one of the four German Clusters of Excellence, students can profit from the high-quality international research environment of the host institution and ultimately increase their own network and their chances of applications to PhD programs in the global north.

Fellows and Guests

With our fellow and guest programme we promote the exchange between researchers - beyond the borders of Mathematics Münster. With the  Münster Research Fellow programme we invite distinguished mathematicians to a long-term stay. Our programme for Young Research Fellows gives outstanding young researchers the opportunity to spend a long-term stay at the Cluster. With the Visiting Doctoral Researchers programme our investigators are able to invite excellent doctoral researchers.
