EPSRC PhD Studentships in Mathematical Sciences

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Reading is pleased to offer a fully funded four-year EPSRC PhD studentship in the Mathematical Sciences. A range of projects are available in areas covering applied, numerical and pure mathematics and statistics. Further details on the available projects can be found below:

Project 1 - Inference of nonlinear dynamics through data assimilation and machine learning

Project 2 - Eigenfunctions, overdetermined PDEs, and rigidity

Project 3 - Effects of predictive causality in long-term trends of cryptocurrency data

Project 4 - Randomized parallel algorithms for data assimilation in numerical weather prediction

Project 5 - Optimising Magneto-Polymer Gels by Combining Molecular Simulations and Machine Learning

Project 6 - Large-scale least squares solvers with applications

Project 7 - Singular Integral Operators in Potential Theory at the Analysis Numerical Analysis Interface


Further details on the Department and its research groups can be found on the Department of Mathematics and Statistics website


Entry requirements

Applicants need to hold a first degree in mathematics, physics, statistics or a related relevant area and have obtained at least a 2.1 degree.



The studentship is open to UK and International applicants and is accompanied by a stipend/maintenance grant at the UKRI level (£16,062 per annum for 2022/23). The studentship is available to commence in September 2022.

In accordance with UKRI guidelines, the studentship is available on a part-time basis in addition to full- time registration. The minimum registration is 50% FT and the studentship end date will be extended to reflect the part-time registration.



Applications should be submitted via our online application system . Applicants do not need to provide a research proposal, but should indicate on their application form which project(s) they are interested in undertaking should their application be successful.

Applications will close on Friday 29 April 2022, with short-listed candidates being invited for interview shortly thereafter.

Applicants should be aware that the University is required to report diversity information to the umbrella funder, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). UKRI receives this information as aggregated and anonymised data of recruitment rounds/cohorts, not as data about individual applicants. This data is collected so that UKRI has a better understanding of the students its training provision attracts and supports and is able to analyse general trends in student populations across UKRI.
