Are you finishing your bachelor's or master's degree in a subject with substantial quantitative content? Do you hope to get excellent results? Do you want to develop solutions to challenging, real-world problems which can make a difference to business and society?
The Department of Management Science is part of Lancaster University Management School, the most research-intensive business school in the UK (REF, 2014). The department houses one of the largest and most influential OR groups in Europe.
We are looking to recruit up to four researchers who will be:
• excellent doctoral students with a strong quantitative background (including mathematics, physics, computer science and engineering) and
• who satisfy the UK residency requirement for full EPSRC support (usually met by EU students whose undergraduate studies were in the UK).
for PhD study in any area of the department's OR research portfolio. Successful candidates with a suitable master's degree will be awarded a 3.5 year research studentship while those with only a bachelor's degree will be admitted to a 1+3 year programme which incorporates an initial year of research training (MRes). As part of your doctoral training, you will be able to access a wide range of opportunities for personal and skills development, including association with Lancaster's centre for doctoral training in statistics and OR (STOR-i).
Your application should be by covering letter, in which you should indicate which area is of interest to you (and why) and some possible topics for research, along with a full CV. We shall then contact short-listed candidates to put them in touch with potential supervisors for the development of a fuller research proposal.
Applications will be processed as soon as they are received. The appointment process will include an interview.
Second round deadline: 31 July 2016
