WelcomeThe New Zealand Mathematical Society (Inc.) is the representative body of professional mathematicians in New Zealand, and was founded in 1974. Its aims include promotion of research in the mathematical sciences, the development, application and dissemination of mathematical knowledge within New Zealand, and effective cooperation and collaboration between mathematicians and their colleagues in New Zealand and in other countries. Notices and newsCall for Nominations for the 2016 NZMS AwardsNominations and applications for the 2016 NZMS Research Award and the 2016 NZMS Early Career Award should be sent to the NZMS President Astrid an Huef by 31 July 2016. Current vacancies
School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Canterbury Applications are invited from outstanding candidates for the continuing position at the level of Lecturer (comparable to Assistant Professor in the US system) in the School of Mathematics and Statistics. The position is open to candidates with a strong research record in mathematics. Applicants whose research area is in algebra and/or number theory are particularly encouraged to apply.

Lecturers are selected based on their eminent contribution as a research mathematician as well as their ability to speak effectively at a more popular level. The tour will involve giving lectures at different universities around the UK over the period of a few weeks in 2017 (further details to follow). Summary of the Society’s activitiesConferencesListing of upcoming conferences. Promotion of researchEach year the Society awards both a Research Award and an Early Career Award to mark and reward outstanding research activity. OrganizationThe Forder and Aitken Lectureships are a reciprocal exchange between the New Zealand Mathematical Society and the London Mathematical Society featuring noted mathematicians speaking in each others countries on alternate years. The Maclaurin Lectureship is a new reciprocal exchange between the New Zealand Mathematical Society and American Mathematical Society featuring noted mathematicians to speak in each others countries on alternate years. The NZMS Visiting Lectureship allows a visiting mathematician to spend two to three days at each of the six main university centres; the Society coordinates and provides some financial assistance for this tour. Women in MathematicsThe NZMS is committed to actively addressing the issues facing women in mathematics. Mathematics EducationThe NZMS Education Group aims to provide the New Zealand community with independent and hopefully influential commentary on mathematical education issues. PublicationsThe Newsletter, published three times a year, is the official organ of the Society, and contains news from around the country, featured opinion articles, featured mathematicians, official notices and minutes, and application forms. The Society also copublishes the New Zealand Journal of Mathematics. OtherThe Aitken Prize is awarded annually for the best contributed student talk at the NZ Mathematics Colloquium. Information is maintained of mathematical visitors to New Zealand. Financial assistance is made available in the form of grants to support the costs of hosting mathematical visitors, organising conferences or workshops, attending conferences, and any other mathematical researchrelated activity.
