Women in Geometry and Number Theory

The London School of Geometry and Number Theory will promote equality and fairness and foster a supportive and collaborative environment for all of its students.

One of our particular aims is to recruit a critical mass of women students and to help counteract the under-representation of women in UK mathematics. We therefore strongly encourage interested undergraduate women mathematicians to apply to the LSGNT and hope to receive a great number of applications from women.

Links with Cambridge

The LSGNT is pleased to note opportunities provided by the collaboration of Newnham College Cambridge and the Masters in Advanced Study Course (Part III) in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Statistics (DPMMS) at the University of Cambridge.

Deferred LSGNT Studentship: If you are a woman undergraduate considering the one year Part III course in Cambridge and a PhD in Geometry and Number Theory, you are strongly encouraged to apply simultaneously both to Cambridge and to the LSGNT, and to let Cambridge (partiii-admissions@maths.cam.ac.uk) know that you wish to be considered for the joint LSGNT/Part III/Newnham scheme. We plan to offer a deferred LSGNT studentship to one to two women applicants who take up a place in Part III, likely in conjunction with the Sheila Edmonds Bursary see below. Women applicants who are accepted to Part III by late February 2014 or early March 2014 should let us know if you wish to be considered for a deferred PhD place (i.e. commencing September 2015).

Sheila Edmonds Bursary: Newnham College and DPMMS jointly will be offering a new bursary for up to three women students taking the pure mathematics Part III course. This bursary is not limited to students wishing to study geometry and number theory but covers all areas taught by DPMMS.
