Visiting Research Fellow, University of Oxford

PhD Studentship

Rachel Newton and I are currently advertising a 3-year fully-funded PhD place in number theory at the University of Reading to start in September 2019. Please see Note that EPSRC eligibility rules mean that full funding is only available to UK students or EU students that have been resident in the UK for the 3 years leading up to the start of the PhD.
