Ph.D. Programme: Mathematical Methods in Natural Sciences (MMNS) aims to provide research programmes covering modelling, mathematical/numerical analysis and computer implementation/simulation of the investigated models. Each Ph.D. project is meant to provide a better understanding of certain phenomena arising from industrial innovations, natural or medical sciences. The ambition is to equip the students with the manifold qualifications expected from future leading researchers in academia and industry.
Ph.D. students participating in the project will be provided with intensive training in innovative mathematical methods for complex structures and processes. Moreover MMNS will hold an international visitors programme, embedded in a world-wide network of partner institutions. Specific measures and incentives will promote the early integration of doctoral students into the international scientific community and foster application of modern mathematical methods to challenging problems in biosciences and material sciences. The programme will strongly collaborate with the international network of partners and will promote transfer of new methodologies to industry.
The programme is conducted by four research units:
The programme provides very good studying facilities and support:
  • four-year studies in one of the Polish research units of the consortium
  • foreign visits in the partner institutions for a duration of 6-24 months
  • personal stipends for Ph.D. students amounting to 3000 PLN a month (during foreign visits the stipend will be increased up to 4500 PLN)
  • research grants covering the costs of computer equipment and international/domestic conferences
