PhD Position in Nonlinear Equations

University of Sussex is offering PhD funding in mathematics. To be eligible, candidates must hold European citizenship. Applications are invited up to May 01, 2015.

The research project addresses the mathematical analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations arising in electronic structure models of quantum chemistry and, in particular, models in the presence of an external magnetic field. The objective is to identity, explore and develop relevant links between the various variational methods, with a view to providing a more integrated approach to their use in nonlinear partial differential equations and initiating new areas of application within quantum chemistry, with possible use in numerical studies.

Award amount £ 13863 (2014-1 per annum tax-free bursary and waiver of UK/EU fees each year for 3.5 years. Overseas (ex-EU) students may also apply, but applicants should note that the award waives the fees at UK/EU rates only, of £ 3996 per year.

Due to UK government requirements, Overseas students pay higher fees of £ 13750 per year, so additional fees of £ 9745 per year will be required. We regret we are unable to fund the additional fees ourselves.

Application Requirements
Eligibility Applicants must hold, or expect to hold, a UK Bachelor degree in Mathematics at first or upper second class, and/or a UK Master 's degree in Mathematics, or equivalent non-UK qualifications.

Candidates with background knowledge of partial differential equations, mathematical analysis, and quantum physics, are preferred. Ex-EU applicants must state how they will fund the additional fees required.

Enquiries about your eligibility, the progress of your application, and admission to Sussex, should be sent to Mr Richard Chambers,
