PhD in Mathematical Modeling at the Rochester Institute of Technology

Mathematical modeling has the potential to provide innovative solutions to problems in fields from medicine to climate change. There is a broad need for researchers with sophisticated quantitative skills to develop and expand current and future advances in science and technology. Training to work across two or more disciplines will prepare you for opportunities connecting diverse teams of researchers.

Mathematical modeling will prepare you for careers in employment sectors that include corporate research and development, defense laboratories, and government agencies as well as academe. With training in the emerging discipline of mathematical modeling, you will be positioned to advance emerging technologies in a wide variety of application fields.

To achieve your goals, you will choose to focus on applied inverse problems; biomedical mathematics; discrete mathematics; dynamical systems and fluid dynamics; or geometry, relativity, and gravitation.

RIT calls for applications from students for the new PhD program in Mathematical Modeling and will provide for up to five stipends for TAs and RAs.
