PhD Studentship in the Department of Mathematical Sciences of Loughborough University, UK

Entries for the Loughborough University PhD Studentship are now accepted. This award is purposed to support any doctoral students in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. The winning students will receive benefit of annual stipend of of £14,057 plus tuition fees. This award is tenable for maximum three years. To apply, the completed application form and other supporting materials must be submitted no later than 11 September 2015.

Studentship Description
This PhD studentship is funded by the Loughborough University School of Science to start on or after 1 October 2015. The project will be based in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. The project will explore notions of positivity in algebraic geometry and the invariants derived from them, especially cones of positive cycles on algebraic varieties. This is an exciting topic at the frontier of research in algebraic geometry, with scope for development in a number of directions.  The successful candidate will have a good background in both algebra and geometry. Depending on interest, the project could also incorporate a significant computational aspect.

Award Value
Each of the winners of this studentship will receive stipend of £14,057 per annum plus tuition fees at the UK/EU rate for up to three years. International (non-EU) students may apply but will need to find the difference in fees between those for a ‘UK/EU’ and ‘international’ student themselves.
