Heilbronn Doctoral Partnership Scholarship

The Heilbronn Doctoral Partnership (HDP) invites applications for fully-funded PhD Studentships in Mathematics, in association with several UK Universities, including Oxford. Preferred topics include the general areas of Pure Mathematics, Probability, Data Science, and Quantum Information.

In addition to undertaking cutting-edge research in one of the partner universities, students on this programme may expect to participate in summer workshops at the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research (https://heilbronn.ac.uk/). It is anticipated these workshops will be about 4 weeks in length and residential in nature (with extra costs covered as appropriate).

Students should not expect to be subject to security vetting from the start, although some students may be vetted as time progresses. Successful vetting may lead to a richer experience in the summer schools.

Students from traditionally under-represented groups in mathematics are strongly encouraged to apply.

There are two four-year studentships available for the DPhil in Mathematics at the University of Oxford. To apply for one of the studentships, simply complete and submit a standard online DPhil application with all supporting materials via the following link:


and state that you would like to be considered for the Heilbronn Doctoral Partnership (in addition to all other available funding sources). You will be asked in the application if you are applying for a studentship: please state "yes" and state the code "4HBS”.
