Course summary

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Mathematics of Random Systems is a four-year doctoral programme that offers academically outstanding students training in the areas of probabilistic modelling and stochastic analysis at Imperial and Oxford.

The Mathematics of Random Systems CDT offers a comprehensive four-year doctoral training course in stochastic analysis, probability theory, stochastic modelling, computational methods and applications arising in biology, physics, quantitative finance, healthcare and data science. It provides solid training in core skills related to probability theory, stochastic modelling, data analysis, stochastic simulation, optimal control and probabilistic algorithms.

Assessment

The outcome of the research project will be presented in the form of a doctoral thesis which, if successfully defended, will lead to the award of the DPhil degree.

Students will be initially admitted to the status of Probationer Research Student (PRS). Within around 15 months of your course starting you will be expected to apply for transfer of status from Probationer Research Student to DPhil status.

A successful transfer of status from PRS to DPhil status will require completion of assessed work to a satisfactory level for the four core and three elective courses. You will be required to acquire transferable skills as part of your training and to complete six days of training prior to transfer of status. Students who are successful at transfer will also need to apply for and gain confirmation of DPhil status within around 39 months of admission, to show that your work continues to be on track.

Both milestones involve submission of written work and an interview with two assessors (other than your supervisor) and therefore provide important experience for the final oral examination.

You will be expected to teach at least one set of classes before transfer of status and at least two additional sets before confirmation of status.

You will be expected to submit an original thesis after three or, at most, four years from the date of admission. To be successfully awarded a DPhil in Mathematics you will need to defend your thesis orally (viva voce) in front of two appointed examiners.

Graduate destinations

The CDT in Mathematics of Random Systems will aim to provide postdoctoral research opportunities in the UK and abroad through the CDT's international network of academic partners, as well as industry placement opportunities through our numerous industry partners.
