Mathematical Biology PhD Research
is a thriving postgraduate research community within and around the
Centre for Mathematical Biology in Bath. We have an ethos of active and
supportive research supervision to guide students from
enthusiastic graduates to fully independent researchers. If
you are interested in
doing research leading to a mathematical biology PhD, the CMB could be the place
for you. Read on, get in touch. We welcome all enquiries and
UK residents are generally eligible for
studentships. These are awarded through the Department of
Mathematical Sciences on a competitive basis. They cover all tuition
fees for the PhD programme and pay a tax exempt stipend to cover living
costs. In 2013 the standard EPRSC stipend was £13,726 per year. Many
students supplement this income by taking undergraduate
tutorials at the university.
UK and non-UK residents may be eligible
for full or partial
studentships offered by the University
of Bath and a range of external funders.
Formal applications should be made by
of Bath system.
