New member of staff: Dalia Terhesiu
We welcome a new member of academic staff, Dr Dalia Terhesiu, who will be joining us from Vienna in January 2016. Currently there is a fully funded (for UK students) PhD studentship available to work at the Centre for Systems, Dynamics and Control with Dr Terhesiu in the area of:
Statistical properties of dynamical systems with infinite measure.
Many such systems characterized by regular variation satisfy appropriate versions of the central limit theorem. The aim of this project is to study analogous results in the absence of regular variation.
The deadline for applications is 4th January 2016, and more details are available from: http://www.exeter.ac.uk/studying/funding/award/?id=2035
PhD studentships available
There are currently a number of PhD studentships open that are supervised by members of academic staff within the Centre:
|EPSRC funded PhD in Mathematics: Statistical properties of dynamical systems with infinite measure||£14,057 per annum plus UK/EU fees for eligible students (2015-16 rates)||Mon 4th Jan 2016||Regarding statistical properties of dynamical systems with infinite measure, the aim of this project is to focus firstly on dynamical systems that behave like Markov chains and study analogous results in the absence of regular variation.|
|EPSRC funded PhD in Mathematics: Stress and Epilepsy: The role of the HPA axis in modulating brain network dynamics||£14,057 per annum plus UK/EU fees for eligible students (2015-16 rates)||Mon 4th Jan 2016||Based within the EPSRC Centre for Predictive Modelling in Healthcare, you will work on an interdisciplinary project that aims to better understand the interplay between stress and epilepsy.|
|EPSRC funded PhD in Mathematics: Modelling Gait in People with Parkinsons Disease.||£14,057 per annum plus UK/EU fees for eligible students (2015-16 rates)||Mon 4th Jan 2016||Based within the EPSRC Centre for Predictive Modelling in Healthcare, a £2M initiative bringing together mathematicians, statisticians and clinicians, you will work on a project aiming to develop a data-driven mathematical modeling framework in order to study gait impairments in patients with Parkinson’s.|
|EPSRC funded PhD in Mathematics: Predictive models for epilepsy surgery||£14,057 per annum plus UK/EU fees for eligible students (2015-16 rates)||Mon 4th Jan 2016||Using dynamical systems theory, you will develop and study mathematical models of brain networks to understand why seizures emerge in people with epilepsy and how treatment perturbations to these networks may alleviate seizures.|
|EPSRC funded PhD in Mathmatics: Mathematical modelling of neuronal activity in the nucleus reuniens: a thalamic region contributing to mammalian cognitive processing.||£14,057 per annum plus UK/EU fees for eligible students (2015-16 rates)||Mon 4th Jan 2016||Computational modelling of the nucleus reuniens (NRe): a thalamic area contributing to mammalian cognitive processing. This project will combine mathematical analysis, numerical techniques and evolutionary optimisation to build biophysical models of neural excitability in the NRe.|
