The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics in the search for a Director of Development and Corporate Relations.
The Director of Development and Corporate Relations will plan, organize, and direct all of the society's fundraising efforts including the major gifts program, annual fund, planned giving, corporate giving, special events, and capital campaigns. The Director will work closely with the Executive Director and the Board of Trustees in all development and fundraising endeavors.
The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is an international community of over 14,500 individual members. Almost 500 academic, manufacturing, research and development, service and consulting organizations, government, and military organizations worldwide are institutional members. SIAM was incorporated in 1952 as a nonprofit organization to convey useful mathematical knowledge to other professionals who could implement mathematical theory for practical, industrial or scientific use. SIAM continues today to advance the application of mathematics and computational science to engineering, industry, science, and society, to promote research that will lead to effective new mathematical and computational methods and techniques for science, engineering, industry, and society and to provide media for the exchange of information and ideas among mathematicians, engineers, and scientists.
SIAM publishes eighteen peer-reviewed research journals and approximately 15 to 20 textbooks and monographs a year which are viewed as a leading source of knowledge for the world's applied mathematics and computational science communities. For more than fifty years, SIAM publications have been indispensable to researchers, faculty, and students around the world.
SIAM Undergraduate Research Online (SIURO) is a web-based publication devoted to undergraduate research in applied and computational mathematics. The publication represents a wide range of applied topics, including but not limited to, analysis, discrete mathematics, statistics, operations research, optimization, dynamical systems, modeling, and computation.
SIAM News reports on novel applications of mathematics and new uses of mathematical methods in numerous areas from medicine to climate modeling and is intended for both SIAM members and the overall community served by SIAM.
SIAM conferences focus on timely topics in applied and computational mathematics and applications. These conferences provide a place for members to exchange ideas and expand their network of colleagues.
SIAM offers applied mathematics and computational science related resources for students, teachers, and professionals, such as guidelines, reports, and videos. It also organizes a robust list of programs, like the MathWorks Math Modeling Challenge for high school juniors and seniors and the Gene Golub SIAM Summer School for graduate students. SIAM's extensive prize program annually recognizes outstanding applied mathematicians and computational scientists. The SIAM Committee on Science Policy has a continued presence in Washington, D.C., where it works with policymakers and actively advocate for science funding while also keeping its membership aware and knowledgeable on relevant policy issues.
A bachelor's degree is required for this position. At least five years of experience in development is preferred. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé.
