Department Chairs of a mathematical sciences or a biological sciences department can initiate discussions about bringing a Visiting Lecturer to your campus by emailing your interest to:
The web page (http://www.mbi.osu.edu/about/vlprogram.html) contains a list of the Visiting Lecturers for the academic year 2010-2011. By clicking on the name of each individual you can read a brief biographical sketch and a paragraph about what they would lecture on.
When you contact the Director and express interest in a particular Visiting Lecturer, the Director will contact the Visiting Lecturer and see if he or she is able to visit in the time frame that you indicate. If so, the details of the visit will be worked out between the Department Chair and the Visiting Lecturer. Please keep in mind the fact that the Visiting Lecturers are well known mathematical biologists who have many research and teaching commitments. So it is good to arrange visits well in advance and please be aware that your first choice may not always be available.
The Mathematical Biosciences Institute will reimburse speakers' expenses of the visit (conforming to NSF guidelines). Reimbursable expenses include travel and hotel costs. MBI expects to support five visiting lectures per year.
Full consideration will be given to applications received by September 30.
