Outstanding students with a BS or MS are invited to apply for a Ph.D. fellowship within the Numerical Mathematics Group.
Please contact us by e-mail as you submit your application
through the KAUST admissions website.
You should include a sample publication or other demonstration of your research and writing.
Potential thesis topics include all areas of research mentioned on our Research page. A degree in mathematics (applied or pure), physics, engineering, or a related field is required, as are excellent written and verbal English communication skills.
Applicants possessing a Master’s degree will begin the Ph.D. program immediately, while applicants with a Bachelor’s degree only will be expected to complete KAUST Master’s degree requirements first. KAUST students receive a competitive stipend, as well as benefits including housing and insurance. Students in our group are provided with generous professional travel funding for conferences and collaborative work.
Students in our group interact closely with collaborators at international partner institutions and present results of their work at major international conferences. No teaching duties are required of KAUST Ph.D. students, although teaching opportunities may be provided if desired.
Visiting student research projects
Outstanding students currently enrolled in a Bachelor's or Master's program are invited to apply for a visiting student position within the Numerical Mathematics Group. Potential projects are listed in the sidebar to the right, and the links provide more information on each project. Visiting student positions enable the student to undertake a focused research project during the summer or some other period of 3-6 months, at KAUST. The goal is to make a significant research advance, often leading to publication in an international journal. Please contact us by e-mail to apply.
