[DMANET] PhD studentships in Mathematics at The Open University, UK


As part of the launch of our Graduate School, the Open University has
announced 30 PhD studentships for study commencing 3 October 2016.
Applications in Mathematics and Statistics are particularly
encouraged. Studentships cover full-time fees, include a stipend
(currently £14,296 per annum) plus £1000 annual travel allowance, and
are for three years.

Situated on the OU Campus in Milton Keynes, the Department of
Mathematics and Statistics provides a friendly and flexible working
environment for all of its staff and students, and holds a Bronze
Athena SWAN award. We particularly welcome applications from women:
the Department ensures that every female PhD student is allocated a
female member of staff as a point of contact, and organises networking
events for female academic staff and PhD students.

Several research projects are available, covering topics in pure
mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics, and include projects
related to discrete mathematics. Full details of projects are
available from:

Informal enquiries are welcome, and should be made to the Research
Director in the first instance.

Completed application forms, together with a covering letter
indicating your suitability and reasons for applying, should be sent
to to arrive by 5pm on Friday, 29
July 2016. Application forms are available from:

This opportunity is available only to applicants from the UK, EU or
