Postgraduate opportunities: Leeds  Warwick  Surrey

  • PhD opportunities in Dynamical Systems and Mathematical Biology Department of Mathematics, The University of Auckland. Closing date: 1st November, 2012
    One PhD studentship is available in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Auckland to work on a project in dynamical systems and mathematical physiology, looking at techniques for analysis of mathematical models with multiple timescales with particular application to models of intracellular calcium dynamics and of neurons. This work is part of a larger project looking at techniques for rigorous construction and analysis of reduced models of physiological systems and involving the researchers James Sneyd, Hinke Osinga, and Vivien Kirk at the University of Auckland, and Martin Wechselberger at the University of Sydney.
    A good background in dynamical systems and scientific programming is desirable.
    Stipend is NZ$25,000 pa (tax free) for three years plus tuition fees. Interested candidates should send an email expressing their interest, along with a CV and academic record, to Dr Vivien Kirk at
