DMiR-Director’s Mathematician in Residence Program

The BSM Director’s Mathematician in Residence Program (DMiR) is conducted under the direction of the BSM North American office. The program is open to individual faculty members, as well as to research teams of two or more scholars applying jointly. Spend three weeks during the summer as the BSM Director’s Mathematician in Residence in beautiful Budapest, and enjoy a unique opportunity for professional development, networking, and collaboration with renowned Hungarian mathematicians. Gain valuable international experience, as well as a firsthand look at the BSM program and all it offers to participating undergraduate students.

The program funds travel to Hungary and housing in Budapest. Office space, internet access, and a math library will be available. In addition to providing in-country support, local BSM staff will coordinate a social program including an orientation, city tour, and welcome banquet. Faculty members accepted to the program (DMiR scholars) will be expected to be available to BSM students two to three hours per week and to give a short lecture series, targeted to BSM students, on their research area.

Applications will be accepted beginning Fall 2018 for Summer 2019. 

Faculty application deadline is December 1, 2018.  DMiR 2019 Flyer

Meet our BSM DMiR Scholars for Summer 2018!

Elizabeth (Liz) Milićević is an assistant professor at Haverford College.  She earned her B.S. in Mathematics from Washington & Lee University, followed by a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.  Liz did postdoctoral work at the University of Michigan, taught at Williams College, and has held invited research positions at the Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics, the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, and the University of Melbourne.  Since her own participation as a student, Liz has remained actively involved in both the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics program and the Women and Mathematics Program at the Institute for Advanced Study.  Liz’s research centers around geometric and topological questions about algebraic varieties such as affine Grassmannians and flag varieties using the methods of algebraic combinatorics, representation theory, and even geometric group theory.  Her research program has been supported by an AWM/NSF travel grant, a Simons Collaboration Grant, and a grant from the National Science Foundation.  



Djordje Milićević is an analyst and number theorist and an assistant professor at Bryn Mawr College.  Djordje grew up and earned his undergraduate degree in Belgrade, Serbia, graduated with a Ph.D. from Princeton University, and has taught and done research at the University of Michigan, Amherst College, the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, Germany, and the University of Melbourne in Australia. His research is concerned with analysis on arithmetic manifolds, automorphic forms, L-functions, and analytic number theory. He is particularly interested in Maass forms and central values of L-functions and studies them using tools from spectral analysis, representation theory, analytic number theory, and p-adic analysis. Djordje has been a principal investigator on research grants from the NSF and the NSA. An avid problem solver, he took part in International Mathematical Olympiads and undergraduate competitions, has taught problem solving seminars for over 15 years, and co-wrote three Putnam exams.
