The Department’s active growth in recent years has embraced both staff and students, steadily increasing our ability to lead the way in research across the mathematical sciences. This in turn supports our research-led teaching, enabling us to continue to provide a top quality student learning experience which stays at the forefront of progress.

The Department has more than 100 permanent academic staff, who are organised organised into five groups interacting with each other and other departments. More information on the research carried out in the Department can be found on our Research & Impact pages. We also host numerous postdoctoral and teaching fellows, including 3 prestigious Willmore Fellows. We aim to allocate a graduate student to our newest appointments and are constantly seeking funding to reach a target of two PhD students per member of staff.
