Welcome to GlaMS PhD training Centre, a joint PhD training centre between the University of Glasgow, the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University.


Our 60+ supervisors cover the full range of Algebra Structures, across Algebra, Mathematical Physics, and Geometry & Topology, and we train within the remit of algebraic methods, interpreted broadly. We offer innovative training, including courses and working seminars in the first year, group projects, and 3-month placements. For more information, please consult About, and our FAQs.


We have now completed out first and second intake of students. Applications for our third cohort will begin in October 2021. We very strongly encourage applications from across the mathematical sciences, and across traditional boundaries. For more details, see our Apply page.
