The education within the Research School in Interdisciplinary Mathematics will lead to a doctorate in applied mathematics with a broader applied and interdisciplinary profile than is usual. Therefore, we want to attract students with a strong interest in mathematics who are also interested in working actively with problems that have a clear connection to an applied subject or science.
In addition to opening the way for a continuing career in industry or research institutes, a doctoral degree at the Research School should be seen as a natural basis for a lectureship in mathematics or applied mathematics, especially at a technical faculty, or a career as a teacher or researcher in an applied subject.
The overall objectives of the Research School are
- to recruit PhD students with an interest in applied problems, attractive for industry, as well as their own and other research institutes
- to provide more external research funding to the Department of Mathematics and involve a greater part of the teachers and researchers in external activities
- to stimulate research contacts across subject and department boundaries between mathematicians and representatives of applied subjects and sciences
- to support research groups with expertise in various disciplines and thereby increase the opportunities for new technological/scientific breakthroughs.
PhD positions at the Research School are advertised on Work at Linköping University.
