Dr. Adrian Iovita is offering at least two scholarship opportunities for students applying to the MSc/MA with Thesis option (option A) in Mathematics and Statistics and at least one for students applying to the PhD in Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The student’s research will be centered on the study of p-adic properties of mathematical objects coming from geometry like schemes, modular forms, Galois representations and especially the study of p-adic families of such objects.
The selected candidates will have various opportunities to present their research results at conferences and author manuscripts based on their thesis research.
The selected candidate(s) will be offered a competitive funding package which is designed to cover tuition and living expenses. The total financial package may consist of Research Assistantship Bursaries, Teaching Assistantships, and University awards such as the Concordia University Graduate Fellowship (PhD), Concordia International Tuition Award of Excellence, and additional scholarships and bursaries. Students admitted to the MSc/MA receive funding for 2 years and PhD students receive funding for up to 4 years, subject to satisfactory performance.
Students applying to the MSc/MA in Mathematics and Statistics should hold, or be nearing completion of, an undergraduate degree in Pure Mathematics. Students applying to the PhD in Mathematics should hold, or be nearing completion of, a Master’s degree in Pure Mathematics. During their previous degree program, prospective students should have been exposed to advanced Algebra, Number Theory and Algebraic and Differential Geometry.
