American University of Beirut

Summer Research Camp

The Department of Mathematics and The Center for Advanced Mathematical Sciences are organizing the Summer Research Camp in Mathematics. The program offers an exciting research experience to our undergraduate community and help them exploring Mathematics. Students engage in research work with their peers under the guidance of a professor over 6-8 weeks. They are invited to work on problems that do not require substantial background but are nevertheless of interest to the community, with results worth being published. By participating in the camp, students learn to collaborate as a team, extend classroom knowledge to the realm of research, and naturally improve their chances of pursuing successful graduate studies.

The application call for the 2024 edition is now open. Eager to participate or to know more about this unique opportunity? please send an email to fb31@aub.edu.lb with:
1. Brief motivation statement.
2. Your Summer plans.
3. Most recent transcript. Please indicate the courses you are following right now. Having taken some proof based courses is relevant. 
4. Please indicate your Math. interests: Algebra (Abstract Algebra, Number Theory), Analysis (Harmonic Analysis, Complex Analysis, Partial Differential Equations), Numerical Analysis, Statistics, Probability.
Any majors can apply!
