Graduate teaching

Members of the WCMB are also involved in teaching core modules in Introductory Mathematics, Scientific Computing using MATLAB and Advanced Mathematical Biology at the Doctoral Training Centres.

SIAM Student Chapter

The Oxford University Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) Student Chapter facilitates interaction between undergraduates, postgraduates, postdoctoral researchers and faculty members at the University as well as industrial partners through conferences, workshops, competitions, prizes, and other events. Recent activities have included a trip to Bletchley Park, home of British code-breaking activities during the Second World War, and a talk on the history of mathematics at Oxford from Professor Robin Wilson. The Chapter's biggest event is an annual conference, which has featured several mathematical biology talks in recent years. Members of the WCMB have played an active role in the running of the Chapter, volunteering their time as committee members and helping to organise events.
