Within the specialisation in Mathematical Sciences, there are two scientific fields:
The compulsory courses may be substituted by courses at other institutions at an equivalent level if the candidate and supervisors argue (1) the substituted course is better aligned to the candidate’s research AND (2) the candidate has other education or experience that provides the breadth of knowledge expected. The PhD Board must agree any substitution of a course.
Several elective courses for each scientific field are available. Please find a list of relevant courses at uia.no and in the template for the project description.
The employment opportunities in Mathematics and Mathematics Education are diverse. Examples of typical employers for both areas include: Universities, research institutes, government service, consulting companies and the public sector, also holders of PhDs in Mathematics are in demand from finance, media, technology sectors, and more.
Fellows shall present their early stage work in progress seminar that takes place around the end of the first year of the fellowship (First Year Seminar), and additionally in a 90% seminar as a first full draft of the dissertation is nearing completion.
