About

The Geometry and Topology research group from The University of Edinburgh has strong links with both the Algebra & Number Theory and the Mathematical Physics research groups. You’ll find these invaluable, as opportunities to discuss your work and expand your thinking abound.

Overview

The School of Mathematics is a vibrant community of more than 60 academic and related staff supervising 60 students.

Working within one of the largest mathematics groups in the UK, you’ll be completing your degree in an environment that hums with a busy graduate school life, and you’ll have the chance to make your mark in seminars, workshops, clubs and outings.

The Hodge Institute is the home of algebra, geometry, number theory and topology research groups in the School of Mathematics.

While we can offer a large community of researchers under one roof, we believe in encouraging you to gain as broad a perspective as possible. The best way to do this is to involve yourself in the international dialogue on your research area, through attending conferences and symposia, and visiting your peers in centres of research worldwide. Throughout your Geometry and Topology research group from The University of Edinburgh, you’ll be given opportunities to travel to events and institutions that will allow you to gain this perspective, and open up new areas of investigation.

Training and support

Mathematics is a discipline of high intellect with connections stretching across all the scientific disciplines and beyond, and in Edinburgh you can be certain of thriving in a rich academic setting. Our School is one of the country’s largest mathematics research communities in its own right, but you will also benefit from Edinburgh’s high-level collaborations, both regional and international.

Research students will have a primary and secondary supervisor and the opportunity to network with a large and varied peer group. You will be carrying out your research in the company of eminent figures and be exposed to a steady stream of distinguished researchers from all over the world.

Our status as one of the most prestigious schools in the UK for mathematics attracts highly respected staff. Many of our 60 current academics are leaders in their fields and have been recognised with international awards.

Researchers are encouraged to travel and participate in conferences and seminars. You’ll also be in the right place in Edinburgh to meet distinguished researchers from all over the world who are attracted to conferences held at the School and the various collaborative centres based here. You’ll find opportunities for networking that could have far-reaching effects on your career in mathematics.
