Postgraduate Research

Mathematics has a long history at the University of Portsmouth. Our researchers’ work spans a broad range of themes, focussed currently around logistics and management mathematics, nonlinear and complex systems, biostatistics and molecular design, numerical analysis, mathematics education, science and theology and cosmology and gravitation.

You will conduct your research in a thriving research atmosphere, together with other postgraduate research students undertaking MPhil and PhD reserarch, Postdoctoral Fellows, and our academic research staff. It is our practice to have continual, usually daily contact between postgraduate research students and their supervisors, nurtured by the Department's practice of encouraging our postgraduate research students to participate in our regularly organised events and conferences.

We welcome PhD research applications from anyone who has an interest in any of the areas above. Please contact us by email to discuss your research ideas and research proposals.
