Two PhD Scholarships with the School of Fundamental Sciences at Massey University, Palmerston North, New Zealand.
  • Updated January 2020.
  • Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the scholarships are filled.

The PhD research will be part of the project "Organised chaos: Using geometry to explain robust chaotic dynamics in switched dynamical systems" lead by Dr. David Simpson. This project is funded by the Royal Society of New Zealand (Marsden grant 18-MAU-017).

The scholarships cover all tuition fees for international and domestic students and include a tax-free stipend of NZ$27,500 annually for up to three years.

Applicants should have or expect to receive a BSc(Hons) or MSc or equivalent in mathematics. Previous graduate-level studies in dynamical systems is highly desirable. The starting date is flexible (although July 2020 would be ideal).

Applications including a CV, academic transcript, and cover letter should be sent to Dr. David Simpson by email at d.j.w.simpson(at)massey.ac.nz.

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the scholarships are filled, so apply soon to avoid disappointment!
