The CCIMI invites applications for fully funded PhD studentships in Mathematics of Information. We held an Open Day on Thursday 15th November where prospective students came along and discovered more about our Cambridge Mathematics of Information (CMI) PhD programme. Further information is available on our website.
CCIMI Fully Funded PhD Studentships in the Mathematics
The advance of data science and the solution of big data questions heavily relies on fundamental mathematical techniques and in particular, their intra-disciplinary engagement. This is at the heart of the center for the Mathematics of Information which involves mathematical expertise ranging from statistics, applied & computational analysis, to topology and discrete geometry – all with the common goal of advancing data science questions.
Alongside this, specific questions which feed into fundamental methodology development arise naturally in applications we focus on in interdisciplinary engagements with, for instance, economists and social scientists on questions about financial markets and the internet, with physicists and engineers on software and hardware development questions in the context of security, imaging, and structured data processing, as well as biomedical scientists on data science in healthcare and biology.

Both this general advancement of data science, and its applications to specific questions is realised by key mathematical expertise represented in the institute including:
- inverse problems,
- convex analysis,
- sparse optimization
- stochastic analysis
- compressed sensing
- sampling theory
- approximation theory
- random matrices
- harmonic analysis
- partial differential equations
- functional analysis
- quantum computation
- discrete geometry
- graph theory.
We welcome applications for studentships relating to projects and subject areas covering all aspects of the broad field of mathematics of information. Further information on some of the projects currently being investigated by students and faculty can be found on our website, linked here.
The academic requirements for entry to this PhD are a first-class honours degree, awarded after a four-year course in mathematics or related subject, or a three-year degree with a one-year postgradute course on advanced mathematics or related subject. For further details on how to apply for this programme see the relevant entry on the website.
