MASDOC - Mathematics and Statistics Doctoral Training Centre

ENTRY OCTOBER 2017:- We are currently seeking to fill studentships. Applicants are strongly advised to submit their applications as soon as possible. Please contact s.adams at and see the page for PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS for more details on how to apply.

The MASDOC PhD programme has a broad scope within the mathematical sciences rooted in the following major areas :

Analysis and partial differential equations

Numerical analysis and scientific computing

Probability and stochastic analysis

Applied mathematics and statistics

PhD projects in MASDOC vary greatly, from Pure Mathematics to Applied Mathematics and from Theory to Methodology to Applications. Students may specialise in one of the themes or combine techniques from two or more of the themes. MASDOC students develop invaluable skills which are applicable in a broad range of possible careers, from pure academic research through to scientific modelling in industry.

The four year programme comprises a pioneering unique integration of innovative taught modules and PhD research of the highest standard with group work, international partnerships, communication and the acquisition of generic research skills. Supervision of the highest quality is provided by a large body of SUPERVISORS comprising full time permanent Warwick Professors.

Our first OPEN DAY for prospective students will take place on 16 November 2016.

There will be a MASDOC school in PDEs as part of the following Warwick symposium which covers many of the MASDOC research themes:


Recent MASDOC Schools for PhD students include:-

Topics in renormalisation group theory and regularity structures 11-15 May 2015

MASDOC-EQUIP Short Course on Bayesian Methods for Inverse Problems 1-2 June 2015

The Warwick Mathematics and Statistics departments hold Athena SWAN Bronze awards.

The Athena SWAN charter evolved from work between the Athena Project and the Scientific Women's Academic Network (SWAN), to advance the representation of women in science, engineering and technology (SET).
