Mathematics: Fully Funded EPSRC PhD Scholarship: Analysis and Numerics of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations
This scholarship is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Start date: October 2021 or January 2022
Project Supervisor: Professor Jiang-Lun Wu
This PhD project will investigate qualitative and/or quantitative properties of stochastic partial differential equations ‚ÄĒ a rapidly developing research topic with diverse applications. The project may focus on one type of parabolic equations (such as stochastic heat equations, or stochastic conservation laws, or stochastic Burgers equations) driven by Brownian motion, or by alpha-stable processes, or by point processes (Poisson and beyond).¬†Depending on the candidate‚Äôs background and interests, the research can be probabilistic, or analytic, or computational. The project is suitable for a student who has a solid foundation in probability theory and functional analysis, with a moderate knowledge of partial differential equations.


Candidates must have a First, Upper Second Class Honours or a Master’s degree with Merit, in a relevant discipline.

For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.

This scholarship is open to candidates of any nationality.
