Each year the School of Mathematics and Statistics awards a small number of scholarships for tenure in the summer vacation (December – February). These scholarships are usually advertised in September.
The vacation scholarship program is intended primarily for students enrolled in third year mathematics or statistics courses, and planning on continuing their studies in these fields. However, applications from exceptional first or second year students may be considered. Visa difficulties prevent us from offering these scholarships to students who are not residents of Australia or New Zealand.
The purpose of the program is to introduce students to mathematical research. The project of each successful candidate will be supervised by a member of staff of the School.
The research interests of School members cover a wide area of mathematics and statistics, including algebra, analysis, geometry, differential geometry, combinatorics, coding theory, automata, singularity theory, chaos, topology, knot theory, number theory, ordinary and partial differential equations, dynamical systems, astrophysical and geophysical fluid dynamics, geomagnetism, relativity, financial modelling, portfolio analysis, textile mechanics, medical ultrasound, biomathematics, neural networks, statistics, probability, time series.
