Congratulations to John and Michael!

The annual ARC Discovery Grants were announced yesterday, and I’m very happy to report that Michael and, separately, John (with Cai Heng Li) were awarded grants, each getting about $100k per annum for the next three years. Expect some postdoc job adverts soon for people strong in group actions on graphs.

For those unfamiliar with the Australian system, the ARC Discovery Grants are the rough equivalent of the NSF (US) and NSERC (Canada) grants, and as one of the only mechanisms for funding “pure basic research” are the fundamental source of grants for pure mathematics.

As “national competitive grants” they are also the fundamental currency by which we are judged internally and so they are doubly important.

(I was ineligible to apply this year, so I’m not having to write this through gritted teeth!)
