The School's EPSRC funded Mathematical Modelling, Analyis and Computation (MAC-MIGS) Centre for Doctoral Training is based within the Applied and Computational Mathematics group. Applicants interested in this area are strongly encouraged to apply to this PhD programme as well.
If you have a passion for applied mathematics, our facilities, people and environment will help you develop your research ideas to their full potential.
The School of Mathematics is a vibrant community of more than 60 academic and related staff supervising 60 students.
Facilities from the Applied and Computational Mathematics research group from The University of Edinburgh
You will enjoy excellent facilities, ranging from one of the world’s major supercomputing hubs to generous library provision for research at the leading level, including the new Noreen and Kenneth Murray Library at King’s Buildings.
Students have access to more than 1,400 computers in suites distributed across the University’s sites, many of which are open 24 hours a day. In addition, if you are a research student, you will have your own desk with desktop computer.
We provide all our mathematics postgraduates with access to software packages such as Maple, Matlab and Mathematica. Research students are allocated parallel computing time on ‘Eddie’ – the Edinburgh Compute and Data Facility. It is also possible to arrange use of the BlueGene/Q supercomputer facility if your research requires it.
You will have access to EPCC, one of Europe’s leading supercomputing centres.
Our research interests are varied and include:
- astrophysical fluid dynamics
- multiscale modelling and analysis
- molecular dynamics
- mathematical meteorology
- Hamiltonian dynamics
- nonlinear waves in fluids and solids
- 36 months
- 72 months
