Ah, the age-old question: was Mathematics discovered or invented? To the person who invented it: Stop that! To those who discovered it: why couldn’t you just keep it to yourself? To the rest of us who merely learned it in school: if we have any hope for understanding and measuring the natural world, consider a Bachelor’s or a Master’s in the Natural Sciences and Mathematics.

Studying all natural phenomena, with the purpose of understanding and capitalising on the unwritten (OK, now they are written) rules that surround us, the field of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is composed of a variety of subjects. They are categorised as either Life Sciences, with Ecology, Anatomy, Botany, or Agriculture; or Physical Sciences, such as Physics, Earth Sciences, Astronomy, or Chemistry. Students who graduate from these fields will find jobs in a multitude of fields, as Math is everywhere, used by everyone.

Some of the most interesting careers are:

• Statistics
• Game Theory
• Cryptography
• Finance
• Economics
• Philosophy

And if you think Mathematics is too predictable or dull, just wait till you attend a party with 2 matematicians arguing over the meaning of infinity.

Ph.D. Physics

The program Physics at Sabanci University is designed for students who wish to acquire an understanding of basic physics, either to support their major program, or to satisfy their interest and curiosity.The program offers a sufficient and consistent formation that will prepare interested students for graduate study in physics.

Turkey
Ph.D. Biochemistry

The Biochemistry PhD degree offered by the Brigham Young University prepares independent scientists to perform and to supervise creative research in biochemistry and molecular biology. 

United States
Ph.D. Chemistry

The Chemistry PhD degree offered by the Brigham Young University prepares a scientist to contribute on the creative front of chemical science. The PhD student will select one of the four chemistry areas of emphasis , but there is sufficient flexibility in course and committee selection that a program of study can acquire a significant interdisciplinary character.

United States
Ph.D. Advanced Metrology and Optical Instrumentation

The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology is a multidisciplinary research centre at the University of Huddersfield. To support the continuing research priorities of the Centre and a number of its industry partners, up to 12 funded PhD studentships are available to work on three-year research projects related to mathematics for metrology, machine tool metrology, optical instrument development, and novel measurement applications in precision engineering and bio-engineering.
