The study of mathematics has never been more important or more highly valued than it is today. Mathematics covers a huge spectrum of fascinating topics and addresses some truly fundamental questions about existence, the universe, both natural and man-made constructs and behaviours within it. Mathematics at King’s is also a pioneering subject, with our research delivering new ways of looking at familiar issues and new tools to solve complex problems.

Postgraduate taught students can follow one of four MSc courses in Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Complex Systems Modelling and Theoretical Physics. Postgraduate research students receive supervision and support from one of the seven departmental research groups. Fully funded postgraduate research studentships are available via the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences, Research Councils including the EPSRC and STFC, and through the London School of Geometry and Number Theory (LSGNT) centre for doctoral training – an EPSRC funded joint venture with Imperial College London and UCL.

The Mary Lister McCammon Summer Research Fellowship for Women in Mathematics

The Mary Lister McCammon Summer Research Fellowship is a funded opportunity to spend the summer before your final year at university working in research with a leading mathematician or statistician. In essence, this is a chance to try out being a PhD student for the summer, and to gain the research experience which will make your PhD application more competitive.

The programme is run by Imperial College London, with projects in geometry or number theory available for supervision by mathematicians from King's College London and University College London through the London School of Geometry and Number Theory.

More information and how to apply is on the Imperial website.  Applications for the 2021 fellowship have now closed. Applications for 2022 will open in late 2021.
