Dr. Chantal David is offering scholarship opportunities 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. Dr. David's research focuses on analytic number theory, arithmetic statistic and random matrix theory. In her recent papers, she studied distribution questions associated to arithmetic objects such as elliptic curves and abelian varieties. She also studied the interplay between behavior of L-functions and random matrix theory. Many aspects of the subject are well understood, but many more remain the object of conjectures, for example the conjectures of Cohen and Lenstra, of Katz and Sarnak, and of Lang and Trotter. Those questions, and others, are driving the research of Dr. David's, and the research projects that she proposes to her students. Learn more about Dr. David`s research publications.
Candidates will have the opportunity to be part of the very active research group in number theory in Montreal, with more than 10 faculty members between Concordia, McGill and Université de Montréal, and numerous post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and Research visitors.
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 (PhD), 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 Number Theory, please contact Dr. Chantal David.
Students applying to the MSc/MA in Mathematics and Statistics should hold, or be nearing completion of, an undergraduate degree in Mathematics. Students applying to the PhD in Mathematics should hold, or be nearing completion of, a Master’s degree in Mathematics, Statistics, Mathematical and Computational Finance, or equivalent.
