Project Overview: 
Students will have the opportunity to choose from available projects, or to 
develop a research project in consultation with a prospective supervisor, in 
the following topics of mathematics with applications to Weather, Ocean and 
Climate Dynamics:
-Data Assimilation
-Dynamical Systems
-Extreme Value Theory
-Fluid Mechanics and Turbulence
-Large Deviation Theory
-Machine Learning
-Numerical Methods
-Partial Differential Equations
-Statistical Mechanics
-Stochastic Processes

Eligibility: 
The minimum requirement is a first or upper second class honours degree or 
equivalent in mathematics or a related subject with a substantial relevant 
mathematical content. Preference will be given to students who also have a 
masters degree and/or postgraduate experience related to MPE. We seek to 
recruit students who are eager to learn and demonstrate enthusiasm to conduct 
research in an environment of mutual support and aspiration of scientific 
excellence.
Due to restrictions on funding these EPSRC studentships are only open to 
individuals who meet UKRI eligibility conditions (see:
