Opportunities within the Geometric Analysis group
Mathematics Institute - University of Warwick

We currently have a large and active group in geometric analysis at Warwick. Major funders are, and have been, The Leverhulme Trust, EPSRC, The China Scholarship Council and the NSF. Funding is available for postdocs and PhD students starting in September 2017 as indicated below. The group also hosts postdocs and PhD students wishing to come with their own funds, although PhD students are normally required to enrol here, and there may be short-term pressure on office space while we build our extension building. The Mathematics Institute has excellent international links with active seminar and workshop series and around 500 visitors per year.

More information about group members this year is here.

Postdoctoral positions

We expect to advertise a 12 month postdoc position in the very near future. Closing date approx December 2016.

PhD positions.

We may offer PhD positions funded by EPSRC starting 1 Oct. 2017. The stipends would be expected to last for 3.5 years.

Supervision is available in diverse areas, including differential geometry, rigorous nonlinear PDE theory and geometric analysis. The geometric analysis group prefers candidates with a good undergraduate training in analysis and/or geometry.

The positions are open to EU applicants. We pay the course fees for all successful EU applicants. In addition, we pay a stipend to successful applicants from the UK, and those from the EU who have lived in the UK for the past 3 years. Students from elsewhere who have raised their own funding are also welcome to apply. Other sources of funds for overseas students may be found here.

The level of the stipends is still to be announced, but now in 2016 it is 14,296 GBP per year, tax free.

The successful candidates will be able to devote their whole time to research. There are numerous opportunities to engage in small-group teaching at Warwick, but this is optional and additional payment will be made for this.

Queries about the application process, and department open days, should be directed to the mathematics postgraduate admissions coordinator: Carole Fisher, postgrad@maths.warwick.ac.uk

Candidates are encouraged to apply, or make an expression of interest, as early in the academic year as possible. The awards may be made at any time.
