Please get in touch if you would like to visit and we can arrange a seminar.
We have a vibrant group of students and faculty in number theory. Our students, from seven different countries, collaborate with each other and with the visitors we regularly host at our department. Students also pursue their own research, focussing on a mixture of reading classical and modern texts and tackling unsolved problems early in their PhDs.
We work closely with our colleagues in the number theory group UNSW Sydney to publish work and organise joint conferences. We visit Sydney regularly and also travel to stimulating meetings in Australia, including Number Theory Down Under and the December meeting of the Australian Mathematical Society.
Since UNSW Canberra provides generous travel support to researchers, several of our students and faculty may have the opportunity to attend overseas conferences. Students can also take advantage of Canberra’s location, and in their holidays travel to many beautiful scenic locations in Australia: an absolute must!
Study With Us
We offer PhD programs in mathematics and statistics and actively encourage new applications. Scholarships of $35,000 (AUD) are available for PhD applicants who achieved H1 (High Distinction) in their undergraduate program and have completed a Master by Research. If you are interested in applying, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We particularly encourage female mathematicians to apply.
