Dr. Alina Stancu is offering at least one scholarship opportunity for students applying to the MSc/MA with Thesis (Option A)in Mathematics and Statistics or the PhD in Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. The research projects will explore properties of convex surfaces that are of interest in generalized Minkowski problems and other convex geometry problems, leading to novel geometric inequalities of isoperimetric type. Projects will combine techniques from differential geometry, analysis and partial differential equations, building up on the candidates’ strengths. The successful candidates will be able to take advantage of a vibrant mathematical community particularly welcoming to graduate students. Through the Institut des sciences mathématiques (ISM) and the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM), students will have various opportunities to grow and mature professionally, to attend conferences and connect to professional networks.
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 Mathematics, or equivalent. Students applying to the PhD in Mathematics should hold, or be nearing completion of, a Master’s degree in Mathematics, or equivalent with sufficient background in analysis and geometry.
