LSE PhD studentships in Financial Mathematics

The Financial Mathematics Research Group <> of the Department of Mathematics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is inviting applications for PhD studies and LSE PhD studentships.

We are seeking exceptionally talented and motivated students with a strong mathematical background and interest in financial mathematics, stochastic optimal control, stochastic analysis and related areas.
The research group consists of Christoph Czichowsky, Albina Danilova, Pavel Gapeev, Arne Lokka, Johannes Ruf, Luitgard Veraart and Michalis Zervos covering all areas of financial mathematics including optimal investment, pricing and hedging of financial derivatives, financial markets with frictions, optimal execution, systemic risk and stochastic optimal control.

PhD students are enrolled at LSE and take part in the London Graduate School in Mathematical Finance <> - a consortium of the financial mathematics groups of Birkbeck College, Brunel University, Cass Business School, Imperial College, King's College, LSE and UCL - and are expected to complete their studies within four years.
Applicants will be considered for LSE PhD studentships covering fees and paying GBP 18,000/year (approximately EUR 21,000 or USD 24,000) for up to 4 years. The studentships are usually tax free.
