Mathematical Modeling Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Degree

A female student writes on a see-through board with mathematical formulas on it.

Request Info about graduate study Visit Apply

The mathematical modeling Ph.D. enables you to develop mathematical models to investigate, analyze, predict, and solve the behaviors of a range of fields from medicine, engineering, and business to physics and science.

STEM-OPT Visa Eligible

Overview for Mathematical Modeling Ph.D.

Mathematical modeling is the process of developing mathematical descriptions, or models, of real-world systems. These models can be linear or nonlinear, discrete or continuous, deterministic or stochastic, and static or dynamic, and they enable investigating, analyzing, and predicting the behavior of systems in a wide variety of fields. Through extensive study and research, graduates of the mathematical modeling Ph.D. will have the expertise not only to use the tools of mathematical modeling in various application settings, but also to contribute in creative and innovative ways to the solution of complex interdisciplinary problems and to communicate effectively with domain experts in various fields.

Plan of Study

The degree requires at least 60 credit hours of course work and research. The curriculum consists of three required core courses, three required concentration foundation courses, a course in scientific computing and high-performance computing (HPC), three elective courses focused on the student’s chosen research concentration, and a doctoral dissertation. Elective courses are available from within the School of Mathematics and Statistics as well as from other graduate programs at RIT, which can provide application-specific courses of interest for particular research projects. A minimum of 30 credits hours of course work is required. In addition to courses, at least 30 credit hours of research, including the Graduate Research Seminar, and an interdisciplinary internship outside of RIT are required.

Students develop a plan of study in consultation with an application domain advisory committee. This committee consists of the program director, one of the concentration leads, and an expert from an application domain related to the student’s research interest. The committee ensures that all students have a roadmap for completing their degree based on their background and research interests. The plan of study may be revised as needed. Learn more about our mathematical modeling doctoral students and view a selection of mathematical modeling seminars hosted by the department.

Qualifying Examinations

All students must pass two qualifying examinations to determine whether they have sufficient knowledge of modeling principles, mathematics, and computational methods to conduct doctoral research. Students must pass the examinations in order to continue in the Ph.D. program.

The first exam is based on the Numerical Analysis I (MATH-602) and Mathematical Modeling I, II (MATH-622, 722). The second exam is based on the student's concentration foundation courses and additional material deemed appropriate by the committee and consists of a short research project.

Dissertation Research Advisor and Committee

A dissertation research advisor is selected from the program faculty based on the student's research interests, faculty research interest, and discussions with the program director. Once a student has chosen a dissertation advisor, the student, in consultation with the advisor, forms a dissertation committee consisting of at least four members, including the dissertation advisor. The committee includes the dissertation advisor, one other member of the mathematical modeling program faculty, and an external chair appointed by the dean of graduate education. The external chair must be a tenured member of the RIT faculty who is not a current member of the mathematical modeling program faculty. The fourth committee member must not be a member of the RIT faculty and may be a professional affiliated with industry or with another institution; the program director must approve this committee member.

The main duties of the dissertation committee are administering both the candidacy exam and final dissertation defense. In addition, the dissertation committee assists students in planning and conducting their dissertation research and provides guidance during the writing of the dissertation.

Admission to Candidacy

When a student has developed an in-depth understanding of their dissertation research topic, the dissertation committee administers an examination to determine if the student will be admitted to candidacy for the doctoral degree. The purpose of the examination is to ensure that the student has the necessary background knowledge, command of the problem, and intellectual maturity to carry out the specific doctoral-level research project. The examination may include a review of the literature, preliminary research results, and proposed research directions for the completed dissertation. Requirements for the candidacy exam include both a written dissertation proposal and the presentation of an oral defense of the proposal. This examination must be completed at least one year before the student can graduate.

Dissertation Defense and Final Examination

The dissertation defense and final examination may be scheduled after the dissertation has been written and distributed to the dissertation committee and the committee has consented to administer the final examination. Copies of the dissertation must be distributed to all members of the dissertation committee at least four weeks prior to the final examination. The dissertation defense consists of an oral presentation of the dissertation research, which is open to the public. This public presentation must be scheduled and publicly advertised at least four weeks prior to the examination. After the presentation, questions will be fielded from the attending audience and the final examination, which consists of a private questioning of the candidate by the dissertation committee, will ensue. After the questioning, the dissertation committee immediately deliberates and thereafter notifies the candidate and the mathematical modeling graduate director of the result of the examination.

All students in the program must spend at least two consecutive semesters (summer excluded) as resident full-time students to be eligible to receive the doctoral degree.

Maximum Time Limitations

University policy requires that doctoral programs be completed within seven years of the date of the student passing the qualifying exam. All candidates must maintain continuous enrollment during the research phase of the program. Such enrollment is not limited by the maximum number of research credits that apply to the degree.

National Labs Career Fair

Hosted by RIT’s Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education, the National Labs Career Fair is an annual event that brings representatives to campus from the United States’ federally funded research and development labs. These national labs focus on scientific discovery, clean energy development, national security, technology advancements, and more.

The project

This is a project in the broad area of applied and numerical analysis for geometrical partial differential equations with applications to cell biology.

The shape taken by biological cells as well as a variety of cellular functions are known to be regulated by the interplay between proteins on the cell membrane as well as the curvature of the membrane. It is widely accepted within the literature that the stationary state of lipid membranes are given by minimisers of the Canham-Helfrich energy. This energy depends on geometric quantities, as such, analysis is rather difficult. Over recent years, more tractable energies have been derived which approximate this energy for membranes ‘near’ to critical points [1,2].  With these energies, some analysis and numerical analysis [3,4] is possible.

This project seeks to develop the numerical analysis related to these approximating energies, as well as to consider optimal control problems which consider proteins embedded within, or attached to, the membrane. The project would be suitable for a student interested in some, or all, of the following areas: geometric PDEs, PDEs on surfaces, finite element methods, numerical analysis and mathematical biology.

  • Fully-paid tuition fees for three and a half years at the home fee status.
  • A tax-free bursary for living costs for three and a half years (£18,622 per annum in 2023/24).
  • Additional financial support is provided to cover short-term and long-term travel.
  • If you are not a UK national, nor an EU national with UK settled/pre-settled status, you will need to apply for a student study visa before admission. 

Eligibility

Applicants must hold, or expect to hold, at least a UK upper second class degree (or non-UK equivalent qualification) in Physics/Mathematics, or a closely-related area, or else a lower second class degree followed by a relevant Master's degree.

This award is open to UK and International students

PhD positions on Rigorous Algorithms for AI in Automation at TU Delft - published March 2024.

Do you want to make an impact in algorithms that formally guarantee reliability of AI in deployment?      

When deploying AI, the real world is often different from simulations. To make AI more rigorous, we are looking for two PhD researchers to work on novel methods for verifying when AI adaptation is necessary, and for resolving violations in a human-interpretable way. You will conduct theoretical and empirical research at the intersection of logic, optimization, and machine learning for control, monitoring, and interpretability. Both PhD projects are inspired by real-world deployment of AI, with one leaning towards advancing theory and the other to be done in close collaboration with domain experts from the Netherlands Railways (NS), leading to significant scientific as well as practical impact.

You will be part of the Algorithmics Group in the Department of Software Technology of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science. You will work in a dynamic and diverse environment of other PhD and postdoc researchers excited about making theoretical and algorithmic contributions in the field of intelligent decision making. You will be supervised by Dr. Anna Lukina (https://annalukina.com/) and Prof.Dr. Matthijs Spaan (https://www.st.ewi.tudelft.nl/mtjspaan/) or Prof.Dr. Mathijs de Weerdt (http://www.alg.ewi.tudelft.nl/weerdt/), depending on the project.

To be the successful candidate, you should:

  • ·       have a Master’s degree in mathematics or computer science,
  • ·        have firm foundations in mathematics/logic/formal methods as well as algorithm design, optimization, and implementation,
  • ·        experience in visualization/illustration/design is a plus,
  • ·        have strong programming skills,
  • ·        be proficient in written and spoken English.

Are you interested in this vacancy? Please apply before March 29, 2024: https://www.tudelft.nl/over-tu-delft/werken-bij-tu-delft/vacatures/details?jobId=16571&jobTitle=PhD%20Position%20Rigorous%20Algorithms%20for%20AI%20in%20Automation%20
