Funding and travel for PhD students?

Last May I visited the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM), a research institute located on the campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Limerick, Ireland and this international trip was my second visit to the CRM to work with my PhD co-supervisor Prof Tim Myers. […]


In the following lines, I will try to explain my experience while doing a Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) with Professor Helen Byrne at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, where you can feel maths everywhere around. As a headline, I can already state that it has been an incredible ‘adventure’ in many different senses […]

An Applied PhD at the Fraunhofer ITWM

My name is Stephan Wackerle and I am a PhD student in a cooperation between the Department for Flow and Material Simulation (SMS) at the Fraunhofer Institute for industrial Mathematics (ITWM) and the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. This cooperation is a great opportunity to gain already whilst the PhD-studies a lot of insights into the […]
