Research degrees

 

Our internationally renowned department fosters an innovative and intimate research environment. We welcome PhD students and post-doctoral fellows from around the world working on a broad range of topics. Postgraduate research students can study for their degree in any of the Department's research themes.

Our researchers also work in interdisciplinary research collaborations within King’s including with computer scientists, physicists and researchers in the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine. They also work externally with industrial partners such as EDF research, the Pensions Policy Institute and Unilever, as well as with the Francis Crick Institute.

Centres for Doctoral Training

NMES Graduate School

The Graduate School in the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences is home to all PhD students studying in the Faculty. From training and funding opportunities, to career development and campus events, it offers a range of services to support the needs and interests of our graduate students, supporting them to achieve their academic and professional goals.

Courses for PhD students

We participate in the London Graduate School in Mathematical Finance, a consortium of the mathematical finance groups of Birkbeck, Brunel, Cass Business School, Imperial, King's, LSE and UCL. It provides a programme of advanced courses in mathematical finance. We also participate in the London Taught Course Centre which offers advanced courses for PhD students in mathematics, including several courses that are relevant for research in analysis and statistics.
