PhD Studentship in Multiscale Modelling of Interacting Particle Systems

International students are invited for a PhD scholarship in applied mathematics at University of Cambridge. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for three years in UK. The deadline to apply is January 31, 2019.

Applications are invited for a three-year PhD student position in Applied Mathematics to work with Dr Maria Bruna at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP). The studentship is funded by Dr Bruna’s Royal Society Research Fellow Enhancement Award. The project involves the derivation of kinetic models of stochastic systems of interacting particles, with specific focus on accounting for excluded-volume interactions between particles.

The post is available from October 2019 and is open to EU and UK nationals. The PhD Studentship offered is fully funded for three years (to include University Composition Fees and maintenance for the duration of your course to RCUK minimum level).

Applicants should hold or be about to achieve a First or Upper-Second (2.i) class degree in mathematics or related field. The candidate must be capable of performing independent research and have good communication skills.

This project will involve stochastic modelling of particle-based models, asymptotic methods and numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDEs). Knowledge of probability theory, PDEs, and C++ and Python programming is desired.

Scientific enquiries apart from the formal application should be directed to Dr Maria Bruna at

(i) a formal PhD application to DAMTP via the Cambridge Graduate Admissions Office, with Dr Bruna identified as the prospective supervisor. Further details on how to apply are available online:

(ii) a supporting statement explaining why you are interested in this studentship to be sent to

Deadline: The deadline for submission for both the formal application and expression of interest is 31 January 2019.
