Elsevier and the University of Oxford have announced a five-year collaboration to develop research talent in mathematics and data science.

The initiative will enable five early career researchers from Oxford Mathematics to apply for the internationally competitive three-year Hooke and Titchmarsh Fellowship Program. Through this fellowship scheme the selected post-doc researchers are provided with opportunities to work alongside and learn from globally-distinguished academics at the forefront of the most profound advances in mathematics.

Professor Louise Richardson, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, said: ‘I am delighted that Elsevier has chosen to work with the University’s Mathematical Institute to support our outstanding early career researchers. This initiative will not only benefit researchers here in Oxford but also the international mathematical research community more broadly.’

Throughout the five-year collaboration, Oxford Mathematics will also host a series of meetings and workshops to bring together researchers from other UK and international institutions to engage on topics ranging from data science to fundamental problems in geometry and number theory.

‘The University of Oxford’s commitment to excellence in research, development of young and emerging talent and creating new ways of academic collaboration are very much aligned with Elsevier’s mission,’ said Ron Mobed, Elsevier chief executive officer.

‘It represents the future of how science should be applied to have a transformative impact on society. Research in mathematics specifically is vital to the exploration of new technologies, innovation, data science and analytics – areas in which we are investing ourselves to make research information more useful.’
