4-year PhD Grant on Matrix Functions Project

A fully-funded 4-year PhD studentship is available immediately to start at any time up to September 2012 to work with Professor Nick Higham on the project Functions of Matrices: Theory and Computation. The successful candidate will join an enthusiastic project team located in the Alan Turing Building.

The programme of work will flexibly be chosen from among the topics such on the project web page.


The studentship fully covers tuition fees and provides a tax-free stipend of 13,590 (standard rate for EPSRC studentships) plus a supplement 2,000 per year.

Funding is available for travel and subsistence to attend and give presentations at conferences and workshops and make research visits to other institutions.

Project members have access to the Computational Shared Facility (CSF) at the University of Manchester, which currently contains 1,720 cores, a number of which are dedicated to this project.


To be eligible you must be an EU national and have, or expect to obtain by summer 2012, a first class degree in mathematics, or a degree with a strong mathematical component.
