The Southampton initiative “from Data and Intelligence via ModelliNg to Decisions” (DIAMOND) invites applications for their PhD studentships. DIAMOND is run by Mathematical Sciences of the University of Southampton. It offers graduate students an intensive, multifaceted training and research programme that equips them with the skills needed to tackle modern problems in Operational Research, Data Science, and mathematical modeling.
Scholarships will be awarded on a competitive basis. Applicants should have or expect to obtain the equivalent of a UK first class or upper second class honours degree (and preferably a master’s degree) in mathematics, computer science, engineering or other relevant discipline. The studentship provides a maintenance grant at the Research Council UK rate and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.
Applications should include a cover letter, CV, detailed academic transcripts and the contact details for at least two academic referees.
We presently offer the following projects:
You will be part of the vibrant research environment of CORMSIS, the Centre for Operational Research, Management Science, and Information Systems at the University of Southampton. CORMSIS has an established breadth and depth in Operational Research unrivalled in the UK. Our research centre applies advanced mathematical and analytical modelling to help people and organisations make better decisions. CORMSIS is the largest Operational Research group in the UK, spanning Mathematical Sciences and Southampton Business School. Among the many areas of expertise, it has extensive breadth and depth of experience in mathematical modelling and optimisation, but covers the whole spectrum of current OR/MS/IS from mathematical optimisation through business analytics and simulation to qualitative research in problem structuring.. In the QS World Rankings by Subject 2019, Operational Research and Statistics at the University of Southampton are placed at 48th in the world and 7th in the UK.
