PhD studentships

We invite applications for fully funded PhD studentships at the Cantab Capital Institute for Mathematics of Information based at the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Cambridge. We will be holding an open afternoon on Thursday November 9th and prospective students are encouraged to come along to find out more about the CCIMI PhD programme.  For further information on the open afternoon, and to register please visit:  

Prospective students are encouraged to look into the CCIMI faculty members and their work, and discuss areas of interest with potential supervisors to find or propose PhD projects related to the institute’s work.

Further information on the institute, our activities, events, and some of the projects currently being investigated by students or faculty can be found on our website, linked below.


CCIMI PhD students will belong to the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) or the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS), or can be members of the Cambridge Centre for Analysis Doctoral Training Scheme (CCA).  Prospective students are again encouraged to discuss this with potential supervisors ahead of their application.  The academic requirements are the same as for the relevant Department/Doctoral training scheme.  For further details on how to apply for these programmes see the relevant entry in the University Graduate Admissions Course Directory:


  • Fully funded PhD Studentships to include University Composition Fees and maintenance for the duration of your course to match the RCUK minimum level.
  • The scheme is open to nationals from all countries.
