Mathematics for Real-World Systems Centre for Doctoral Training

MathSys is a collaboration of three interdisciplinary research centres, each with their own excellent records of world-leading research involving application of mathematics to real-world problems: the Centre for Complexity Science; Warwick Systems Biology; and Warwick Infectious Disease Epidemiology Research (WIDER) centre.

Funded by EPSRC, with support from MRC, 13 external partners (drawn from industry, finance and health) and the University of Warwick, the Centre will train a new generation of scientists needed to tackle the key global challenges facing science, business and society particularly where these involve complex, non-linear, uncertain and stochastic systems.

This has the potential to shift the current state of the art in the training of cohorts of new researchers to combine cutting- edge mathematical skills with the ability to understand and model real-world systems

The Courses

Our research degrees will equip you with:

  • contemporary and highly sought mathematical skills
  • the ability to understand and model real-world systems
  • broad ways of analysing complex data sets
  • multi-disciplinary experience and the option of specialising in key areas of research interest

The one year full time MSc will address specific applied questions. The 3 year PhD will address a real-world system, perhaps working closely with one of our partner institutions.
