The University of Exeter Mathematics department is offering up to 4 fully funded doctoral studentships for 2019/20 entry. Full details of the funding awarded, eligibility and a list of all possible projects is available here

There are two advertised projects in Bayesian Uncertainty Quantification, both co-supervised by Professor Peter Challenor and Dr Daniel Williamson. One entitled “Matching covariance kernels to numerical models in Gaussian process emulation” (full description here), the other entitled “Calibration of numerical models with deep Gaussian processes” (full description here). Both projects will enable the successful candidate to engage with the Alan Turing Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, and to join an active group of researchers in Bayesian methods for Uncertainty Quantification for complex models, with applications in Earth system science, human health and engineering.

Detailed information on the application process is available here. Please send informal enquiries to or to

Applications close on the 13th May 2019.
