- Graduate School
We are a top tier, research-led university and are committed to making a substantial impact on the global challenges facing society. Our postgraduate researchers have opportunities to work at the heart of active research teams, challenging boundaries and making real advances.
Staff research interests in Mathematics include the following:
Biological and industrial mathematics
- Groups and semigroups
- Logic and model theory
- Number theory
- Proof formalization (Lean)
- Representation theory
- Set theory
- Data science
- High dimensional statistics

Working closely with an academic supervisor gives you the support to carry out your own independent research and make your own mark. We have a wealth of remarkable academics, but how do you know which team will be right for you?
We suggest you look at the School's website, check out some academics and read up on some of their publications. We recommend that you identify at least one member of staff at UEA who might be your supervisor and that you contact them, to express your interest and discuss possible research projects.
You will need to submit a research proposal of no more than 1500 words with your application but your potential supervisor should be able to help you with this.
