PhD Studentship – Cones and Positivity
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship funded by the Loughborough University School of Science to start on or after 1 October 2015. The project will be based in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
The project will explore notions of positivity in algebraic geometry and the invariants derived from them, especially cones of positive cycles on algebraic varieties. This is an exciting topic at the frontier of research in algebraic geometry, with scope for development in a number of directions. The successful candidate will have a good background in both algebra and geometry. Depending on interest, the project could also incorporate a significant computational aspect.
For informal enquiries about the project, please contact:
Dr. Artie Prendergast-Smith
