The Department of Mathematics at the University of York is inviting applications for a PhD Teaching Studentship in Mathematical Finance to start in January 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter.
The PhD Studentship will consist of a fee waiver and a stipend at the Research Council rate (currently Â£13,726 per annum) for 3 years. The Studentship is open to Home/EU and Overseas students.
The holders of the PhD Studentship will be expected to teach the equivalent of 6 contact hours per week, while working towards a PhD in Mathematical Finance. The position is intended for a student who is able to assist in delivering MSc modules in Mathematical Finance, for which a good background in measure theory, probability, stochastic processes and mathematical finance is a requirement. More information on the research and teaching portfolio in mathematical finance can be found at
Applicants should already have, or be close to obtaining, a first class MMath/MSci degree, or a BSc plus distinction at MSc or equivalent level in mathematics.
Applicants whose first language is not English should provide with their application evidence of English language skills comparable to IELTS 7 (with 7 in both Writing and Speaking components).
