In 2014, 28% of all mathematics theses were defended by women graduates, while only 20.9% of all research positions in the CNRS (Junior or Senior scientists) and in universities (as Lecturers or Professors) are held by women.
Women in mathematics
The Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées (CIMPA) develops three main programs within the geographic areas of its activities: Africa, Central and South America, Asia. They are the CIMPA Research Schools, the Support for Training in Research program and the Short-Term Thematic funding program.
- 21 CIMPA Research Schools will be held in 2019. Check the list here and click on "list" for details and registration.
A senior researcher at the CNRS, Catherine Goldstein was invited as a plenary speaker at the 2018 International Congress of Mathematicians in Rio de Janeiro. She answered our questions.

On International Women's Day, the Committee for Women in Mathematics (CWM) of the International Mathematical Union (IMU) published the video "Faces of women in mathematics": 146 clips featuring 243 women in mathematics from 36 countries speaking 31 different languages.
L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women and Science Fellowships were awarded. Among the 30 laureates stand two phD students in mathematics: Annalaura Stingo of the Laboratoire Analyse, Géométrie et Applications (CNRS, Univ. Paris-Nord, Univ. Vincennes-Saint-Denis) and Tahina Ralitera of the Laboratoire d’Informatique et de Mathématiques (University of La Réunion). Congratulations!
Stanford University received a gift to establish a graduate fellowship in memory of the mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani, who died in July 2017.
The Maryam Mirzakhani Graduate Fellowship will support graduate students in the Department of Mathematics.
