PhD in Mathematics

The Heilbronn Doctoral Partnership invites applications for fully-funded PhD studentships in association with the Universities of Bristol, Manchester and Oxford. We are seeking applicants with research interests in Discrete Mathematics, interpreted in its broadest sense, which includes most areas of Pure Mathematics, Computational Statistics, Data Science, Probability and Quantum Information.

In addition to undertaking cutting-edge research in one of the partner universities, students on this programme will have the opportunity to spend nine weeks each summer (in years 1-3) at the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research (HIMR), where they will contribute to the classified research activities of the institute. However, this is not a requirement of the studentship.

Successful candidates who wish to work at the Heilbronn Institute must satisfy vetting in order to engage with the classified research at HIMR and UK resident UK nationals will normally be able to meet this condition.

Students from traditionally under-represented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

In order to apply, simply complete and submit a standard online PhD/DPhil application directly through your chosen partner university and state that you would like to be considered for the Heilbronn Doctoral Partnership (in addition to all other available funding sources). There is no separate application process and you may apply to one or more partner universities.
