Having completed a research preparation masters degree and agreed your research topic with a supervisor, you will continue your work exploring themes from our wide range of research expertise. As a school we focus on projects across pure and applied mathematics, mathematical physics and statistics. Some current project themes cover research in communications, sustainable materials and healthcare.

Example projects that our researchers are working on include:

  • Analysis of thin feromagnetic films

  • The statistics of nodal sets in wavefunctions

  • Acceleration, black holes and thermality in quantum field theory

  • Modelling DNA chain dynamics

  • Mathematical modelling of macromolecular capillary permeability

  • Geometric integration of stochastic differential equations

  • Language dynamics in networks

The School of Mathematical Sciences research website contains more information on our research areas. You will also find academic contact details and research interests. You should identify a supervisor to work with and contact them before making a formal application.

Our Researcher Academy can help you develop your research skills through:

  • paid work placements

  • training courses

  • public engagement opportunities

You can also apply for travel funding to help you collaborate and present your research overseas.

Attending research seminars and special lectures will be an important part of your doctoral journey. You will also have the opportunity to deliver papers of your own. The culmination of your work will be a mathematical sciences thesis that makes a significant contribution to research in the area.
