## current news: PhD Positions, UC|UP Joint PhD Program in Mathematics, Portugal November 16th, 2015 (no responses)

From Jorge Neves:

The UC|UP Joint PhD Program in Mathematics, run by the Universities of Coimbra and Porto, in Portugal, welcomes applications for the academic year 2016/2017.

The Program will offer a number of doctoral scholarships (covering tuition fees and living expenses) to selected candidates. Funding will be made available from the support of the national agency FCT and the associated research centers.

All areas of Mathematics are covered in the Program, in particular:

- Algebra
- Analysis/Differential Equations
- Discrete Mathematics/Combinatorics
- Dynamical Systems
- Geometry/Topology
- Numerical Analysis/Optimization
- Probability/Statistics
The first call for applications is open from December 1, 2015 to January 31, 2016:

Extensive information about the Program is available at the website (and additional questions can be posed using phd_prog@mat.uc.pt).
