In collaborating with Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), Swansea University’s Faculty of Science and Engineering is currently awarding a fully-funded PhD Research Scholarship to eligible candidates who wish to enroll for the program at the University.
Swansea University offers a number of awards for students pursuing PhD, MPhil, MRes or Master’s by Research studies. The project is aimed at advancing our understanding of fundamental computational problems concerning the long-term behaviour of linear dynamical systems.

Details About the Swansea University EPSRC PhD Research Scholarship
This scholarship is open to candidates of any nationality. The project is suitable for students with a background in (theoretical) computer science or mathematics. The student will employ a synthesis of numerical and symbolic methods, combining tools from computability, computational complexity, analysis (differential equations, analytic number theory), topology, and algebra (real algebraic geometry, quantifier elimination).
Prior knowledge or experience in one or more of these areas are desirable, but not strictly necessary. Moreover, reachability problems over rational data become un-decidable or provably “hard” already for seemingly very simple systems.
