The Mathematics/Mathematical Physics group invites applications for funded PhD positions starting in September 2021. One or more positions fully funded for 3.5 years may be available. Preference will be given to applications received before March 15, 2021.
Self-funded and Part-time PhD
Suitably qualified candidates may also register as self-funded full-time or part-time PhD students, contingent on sufficient resources being available and research staff commitments. Applications are considered on an individual basis and may be made at any time. Self-funded PhD students may be eligible to apply for a government loan. Find out more about the Doctoral Loan on the Government’s website.
MSc by Research
We also offer an MSc by Research degree, which can be taken either full-time (1 year) or part-time (2 years). Students who enroll in this programme will gain training in research methods and have the opportunity to work on a substantial research project under the supervision of a member of the research staff. As with the PhD, assessment is through submitting a thesis documenting the research project and a viva voce examination. Students are responsible for the payment of fees and living expenses. Applications are welcome up until June for entry in October. Potential applicants should contact us for advice on qualifications, fees, and further information.
To apply, a completed application form, along with copies of higher education certificates and or transcripts, a copy of your passport, and two letters of reference should be returned by e-mail to Lynette Spelman at the address [email protected], by the closing date. The application form can be downloaded at this link.
You should include (in section 11 of the form) a brief statement of your interests and experience. You should arrange for your referees to write separately using the form provided and to send their letters to the same e-mail address by the closing date. For practical questions about applications, please contact Lynette Spelman ([email protected]).
Prospective candidates are encouraged to make informal inquiries directly to members of the group. Find out who to contact on this webpage.
