Application Process:

PROMYS Europe seeks to attract applications from undergraduate mathematicians of the highest quality and potential, regardless of background. Counsellors are required to work full time for the entire duration of the programme and will also need to spend some time beforehand helping with the preparation and undertaking necessary training (such as on safeguarding young people).  One or more of the counsellors will be selected to act as Head Counsellor or Deputy Head Counsellor. Counsellors will be provided with a stipend. 

Working at PROMYS Europe is fun and rewarding but is also intensive and demanding, the hours are full-time, and the rate of remuneration reflects these expectations.

Applications usually open in January each year, when a job description, detailing responsibilities and selection criteria, will be posted here. Applicants will then be required to complete an application form and to obtain recommendations from two individuals who are familiar with their background in university-level mathematics.

Counsellors for PROMYS Europe must be aged at least 18 at the start of the programme. They need to have the right to work in the country in which they will be based at the time of the programme (for example, but not limited to, if resident in the European Union through being a European Union national; if resident in the UK through having UK citizenship). Employment is also subject to the successful completion of DBS checks.
