SEMA PhD Scholarships in Mathematical Biology for International Students, 2018

Applications are invited for Two PhD scholarships in Mathematical Biology for international students.

The Spanish Society of Applied Mathematics (SEMA) was created in 1991, as a milestone in the development of applied mathematics in Spain, motivated by the success and continuity of the national Spanish Congress of Differential Equations and their Applications (CEDYA) that began in 1978. Its main purpose was to contribute in a coordinated manner to the development of mathematics in connection with its applications, responding in this way to new challenging problems of the real world, in the most diverse areas in science and industry.

Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.

Scholarship Description: 

  • Application Deadline: Scholarship is open for the year 2018.
  • Course Level: Scholarships are available to pursue PhD programme.
  • Study Subject: Scholarships are awarded for the projects: Bio-mathematical analysis of the Vertebrate embryo axis elongation (PhD thesis, Toulouse, France) and Kinetic theory applied to the study of the interaction between tumours and their microenvironment.
  • Scholarship Award: The project in France- Funding: Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées (three years); Start date: October 2018.
  • Project in Austria- Funding and Duration: Fully funded position for 3 years.
  • Nationality: International students are eligible to apply for this scholarship programme.
  • Number of Scholarships: Up to two PhD scholarships are available.
  • Scholarship can be taken in France and Austria (One is offered in Toulouse with Ariane Trescases and in Vienna with Sara Merino )

Eligibility for the Scholarship: 

Eligible Countries: International students are eligible to apply for this scholarship programme.

Entrance Requirements: To be eligible for this scholarship you must meet the following requirements:

Bio-mathematical analysis of the Vertebrate embryo axis elongation (PhD thesis, Toulouse, France)

Candidates must have a Master degree or equivalent in mathematics or a subject with a strong mathematical component (e.g. physics, bio-physics, bio-mathematics, engineering, and computer science), skills in programming and have experience and/or demonstrate a strong interest for developmental biology and experimentations in biology.

Kinetic theory applied to the study of the interaction between tumours and their micro-environment

Normally, an undergraduate and MSc in Mathematics with an excellent command of mathematical analysis (especially desirable if knowledge on partial differential equations); good knowledge, experience and a taste for programming and numerical simulations; willingness to work in teams that include biologists. Knowledge on kinetic theory is not required (it will be learned during the PhD).

English Language Requirements: Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.
