School of Mathematical Sciences


The School of Mathematics undertakes internationally leading research across a wide range of fields. Activities within the School are organised under seven main research groups. These groups cover everything from number theory to quantum gravity, from algebra to epidemic modelling.


There are a number of research degrees available within the School of Mathematical Sciences. We also welcome applications for research fellowships.

We currently have around 100 PhD students and the school has seen substantial growth in research income over recent years. Our current grant portfolio is worth approximately £13 million. In the most recent Research Assessement Exercise (RAE) in 2008 the School performed very well; our facts and figures page has more details.


Research Centre 

The Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology undertakes research which uses mathematics to provide insights into biomedical phenomena. It aims to promote the application of mathematical modelling to medicine and the biomedical sciences, and to stimulate multi-disciplinary research within The University of Nottingham and elsewhere.
