PhD Studentship in Geometric Analysis

University College London

Applications are sought for a PhD studentship to investigate Geometric Analysis, especially Lagrangian Mean Curvature Flow. The eventual focus will be on research questions arising from the research project "Advances in contact topology via Lagrangian mean curvature flow’ led by Dr Jason Lotay and Dr Felix Schulze.

The studentship is funded through a grant awarded to Dr Jason Lotay and Dr Felix Schulze by the Leverhulme Trust. The candidate will be expected to become fully acquainted with the theoretical bases of Mean Curvature Flow and Lagrangian Mean Curvature Flow, and to contribute towards the research goals of the project. The studentship is for 3 years and includes the Home/EU fees and a student stipend of approximately £16,785 per annum.

Applicants should apply for the MPhil/PhD programme in Mathematics at UCL, 2017/18 entry, by completing the UCL Graduate Application on-line form for Research Degrees available at: They should identify Dr Lotay and Dr Schulze as their potential supervisors and send an up-to-date CV and a covering letter/email confirming that the on-line graduate application has been submitted and indicating that they are applying for this PhD project: see email addresses below. Candidates who have participated in research should ensure that at least one of the referees who is familiar with that work writes one of their references and gives a brief assessment of that work and the candidate's potential. CV and covering letter/email should be sent by writing jointly to: Dr Jason Lotay (, Dr Felix Schulze, ( and Dr John Talbot (

Applicants should possess a good honours degree (1st class or 2:1 minimum) in mathematics, or an equivalent qualification from other countries. A candidate should have already shown clear interest in high level research in Geometric Analysis, either by participating in a summer research activity, or by having already attempted her or his own research in the area, or by having done a significant amount of preliminary reading of books and papers. The candidates must also meet the entrance requirements to be accepted onto the UCL Mathematics PhD programme (
