PhD Scholarship in Mathematics at Ireland

University College Cork is offering PhD positions in mathematics. The deadline for applying this position is on February 28, 2015. 

PhD studentships (funded by the Science Foundation Ireland) are available in the School of Mathematical Sciences in University College Cork. These PhD projects will address the mathematical analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations arising in the study of water waves. In particular, the project will focus on aspects of nonlinear wave-current interactions in the nearshore. The analysis will employ a variety of mathematical approaches, ranging from the rigorous analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations to some numerical studies. The PhD projects will be under the supervision of Dr. David Henry.

The studentship includes an annual stipend of €; 18,000, together with the full payment of annual tuition fees for European Union students. There will also be funding for international research visits and attendance at international conferences.

NOTE: the studentship does not cover full tuition fees for students from outside the EU.

Application Requirements
The successful applicant should have a 1st or upper 2nd class honour degree from the Irish or UK system - or the relevant European equivalent - in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics. A desirable, although not strictly necessary, background would include knowledge of partial differential equations, mathematical analysis and fluid dynamics. A high standard of written and spoken English is considered compulsory.

How to apply?
Applications should include a CV (including a breakdown of undergraduate courses taken and the results obtained), a covering letter, and the names and contact details of two academic references. Application materials should be sent as e-mail attachments in PDF format to Dr. David Henry.
