MIGSAA is pleased to be able to offer a fully-funded 4-year PhD with Integrated Study to students interested in this broad area of mathematics. We are happy to consider applicants in the final year of their undergraduate degree, or students working to complete an appropriate MSc programme.

MIGSAA is a Centre for Doctoral Training that provides high quality instruction in analysis and the applications of analysis to a wide range of areas. It is a joint venture between the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University under the aegis of the Maxwell Institute for Mathematical Sciences. The degree programme is jointly administered between the two universities, students will be registered at both, will receive a PhD jointly awarded by the two institutions. Students will be trained across the broad spectrum of Analysis and its Applications, including theoretical analysis, PDE, stochastic analysis, numerics and appropriate areas of applied mathematics. Details of the programme structure are available on our website at
