Dr. Giovanni Rosso is offering at least one scholarship opportunity 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 the interplay of arithmetic and geometry such as modular forms, Galois representations, L-functions, and motives, and in particular 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.
For more information about this opportunity and about research in Arithmetic Geometry, please contact Dr. Giovanni Rosso.
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. They should have a strong background in Commutative Algebra, Number Theory, and Algebraic and Differential Geometry.
