Study Options
Full Time

Several full-time three-year and four-year EPSRC PhD studentships in mathematics and statistics are available, commencing 1 October 2022. Studentships cover fees, include a stipend (£15,609 per annum in 2020–2021 for full-time study, plus £1250 annual travel allowance). Self-funded part-time PhD study is also available for some projects.

Situated on the Open University Campus in Milton Keynes, the School of Mathematics and Statistics provides a friendly and flexible working environment for all its staff and students and holds a Bronze Athena Swan award. We particularly welcome applications from women. The School 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 will be available, covering topics in pure and applied mathematics, theoretical physics and statistics. Full details of projects will be available at https://www.open.ac.uk/stem/mathematics-and-statistics/research/phd-research/research-projects-2022 from January 2022. Interested persons are strongly encouraged to make informal enquiries to the Postgraduate Research Tutor, at stem-ms-phd@open.ac.uk
