Announcement follows

Applications are invited for a number of PhD studentships in the Department of Mathematics, University of Bristol, UK. The Department of Mathematics covers a range of applied mathematics, pure mathematics and statistics research. It has an international reputation for excellence in each of these areas and in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise it was awarded ratings of
5*A for Applied Mathematics, 5B for Pure Mathematics and 5*A for Statistics.

The department offers a number of studentships up to a maximum of 3.5 year studentships for UK and EU PhD students who have been residents in the UK for 3 years prior to application, and fees-only funding for other EU students. The studentships include a tax-free stipend of 12,600 per year. Other sources of funding including the Overseas Research Studentship and Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Award are available to non-EU students. In particular, the Statistics group offer 2 studentships with 4 years of nfunding provided by the SuSTaIN (Statistics underpinning Science, Technology and Industry) initiative, to cover a 1 year MRes course followed by a 3 year PhD degree with a supplement of 1500 per year.

The studentships will be restricted to students of a high quality - the normal entry requirement is the equivalent of a First Class or Upper Second Class Honours at undergraduate level.

Study is based around research themes within each group. The Applied Mathematics group covers research in dynamic systems, fluid dynamics, quantum chaos, quantum information and random matrix theory. The Pure Mathematics group contributes to research in analysis and partial differential equations, number theory, non-commutative geometry and topology, representation theory, set theory and logic. The research themes in the Statistics group include applied probability, Bayesian modelling and analysis, behavioural Biology, Monte Carlo, multiscale methods, nonparametric regression, optimisation under uncertainty, statistical bioinformatics, statistical signal processing, and time series.

Details of some possible PhD projects are available at the website along with more information concerning groups, including funding schemes. *Applicants within the UK are encouraged to attend the Mathematics Postgraduate Open day on January 23rd, 2008, at the University of Bristol.
