PhD Opportunities

Projects in Applied and Computational Mathematics

Projects are available in the areas below. See the School's Postgraduate Research pages for general information on the Graduate School and the application process, contact possible supervisors, and apply online for the Applied & Computational Mathematics PhD.

Many of the projects are compatible with The Maxwell Institute Graduate School in Analysis and its Applications and you should also apply through this route if applicable. Opportunities in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics are also available through the Edinburgh Earth & Environment NERC DTP.
