MSc project call 2020

The MathSys CDT invites proposals from Warwick academics and other partners for MSc projects to be undertaken by our students from June to September. We have 16 students on the MathSys programme who will be doing MSc research projects, and 13 of them have funding to progress to PhD study after successful completion of their MSc.

Please submit your proposal until Monday, 9 March 2020 via the web form located at

Potential supervisors should be aware of the following:

  • Project proposals will be made available to the students on a weekly basis. Therefore, early submission of proposals may increase the chance of a project being chosen. Please also make use of additional advertising opportunities mentioned below as soon as possible.
  • There is a project fair on Thursday, February 27, 2 - 4pm in the Complexity Centre Common area, where you are invited to bring posters or other material to advertise your project.
  • You may further advertise your project to the students for 10 minutes in our weekly meeting on Wednesdays starting shortly after 10am in D1.07 in the Zeeman Building. Please email to arrange.
  • All students will do one project of three months duration starting mid June, with a submission deadline of 14 September 2020 for their report. Project assignments will be confirmed by mid March.
  • Projects should be quantitative in nature and provide an opportunity to do original research in the area of mathematical modelling of real-world systems, broadly interpreted. Literature reviews, feasibility studies and data acquisition tasks are not suitable. In addition, our students are not trained to do laboratory work
  • For follow-on PhD projects involvement of a non-academic external partner is compulsory. In line with RCUK expectations, the MathSys CDT seeks to cover 30% of total studentship costs using co-funding from project partners. While external co-funding is not a requirement for individual projects, we prioritise projects where the external partner can provide a matching contribution.
