PhDs and Research Degrees in Mathematics

We welcome applicants for our postgraduate research opportunities available in the School for the coming academic year.  Our research embraces mathematical topics including:

Applied Mathematics

  • Biological mathematics
  • Environmental mathematics
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Fluid-structure interaction
  • Industrial mathematics
  • Mathematical physics
  • Numerical computing


Pure Mathematics

  • Groups and semigroups
  • Logic and model theory
  • Number theory
  • Proof formalization (Lean)
  • Representation theory
  • Set theory 



  • Data Science
  • High dimensional statistics
  • Statistical inference 

Postgraduate research degrees usually take between three and four years to complete and are supervised by our academics who outline the research, and provide guidance and mentoring throughout the project. You will be involved in our active postgraduate community and have the numerous training opportunities beyond your research project, e.g. through taught courses and study groups.
