   PhD in Mathematics at the University of Bath
   EPSRC CASE Studentship with the Met Office on
   "Multilevel Monte Carlo Methods for Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling"

The Science Graduate School at the University of Bath is looking for
enthusiastic UK graduates wanting to do an exciting PhD in Mathematics
on the "Application of Multi-level Monte Carlo Methods in Atmospheric
Dispersion Modelling". This is an enhanced EPSRC CASE Studentship in
collaboration with the UK Met Office. EU Graduates who have lived in the
UK for 3 years can also apply.

The goal of this project is the application of multilevel Monte Carlo
methods (a novel variance reduction technique for stochastic
differential equations) to problems in atmospheric dispersion modelling,
such as the dispersion of a cloud of volcanic ash, or of a smoke plume
in an industrial fire. With your own implementation of the method you
will study the performance of the method for a range of representative
model problems from the Met Office. The aim is to demonstrate and
improve the effectiveness of the multilevel approach in the atmospheric
modelling context. As far as possible analytical methods will also be
employed to study the performance of the method theoretically and to
guide the design of efficient algorithms. Depending on the success of
the project, the method will eventually be implemented in the Met
Office’s operational model. For more information see

We are looking for Maths graduates with a background in numerical
algorithms, numerical analysis, differential equations, and computing,
as well as an interest and basic knowledge of probability theory.
Alternatively, we also strongly encourage students with a background in
probability/statistics and a keen interest to expand their studies to
numerical analysis and computing to apply.

For more information please email Prof. Robert Scheichl
