The University of Chester has a small successful Mathematics Department offering students the opportunity to study Mathematics at any level from undergraduate BSc degrees, and (part time or full time) MSc programmes to research degrees of MPhil or PhD. Students are very successful in their studies at Chester, probably because of the excellent facilities available and the first class working relationships that can be developed in a small department. Our graduates have a very high employment rate.
In research, members of the department are active across the general area of functional differential equations which have applications in many areas. One area of particular current interest is in the mathematical modelling of the immune system and we have continued joint work with our former Leverhulme International Professor on this project. We also have projects currently underway relating to delay differential equations, fractional differential equations, integral equations and integro-differential equations.
A major part of our work is based on excellent long-standing co-operations with mathematicians in other groups (within the UK and overseas) and we are always happy to hear from new potential collaborators (or, indeed, from potential students). Every year we have a programme of visits and visitors and longer term fellowships (supported by external grants) are possible too. For potential PhD students from outside the European Union we are happy to support applications for the prestigious ORS awards, subject to candidates of sufficient merit coming forward.
