# Research Opportunities in Mathematics

Mathematics research at NUI Galway is centred around two clusters, one in algebra & geometry, the other in analysis, with computational aspects of
mathematics an overarching theme.
There is an active Mathematics PhD programme and prospective students are encouraged to contact staff directly to enquire about funding opportunities.
Prospective postdocs should also contact staff directly.

The School hosts 13 permanent lecturers and professors who are currently publishing their work in pure mathematics journals; most are publishing in A* journals according to the Australian Research Council's ranking of international journals.

### Algebra & Geometry

The largest research cluser is in algebra and geometry and its activities
are described in the web pages of the
EU/SFI supported de Brún Centre for Computational Algebra.

### Analysis

There is a strong research cluster in analysis with main focus on
differential equations.
People active in this area include
Niall Madden,
Aisling McCluskey,
Donal O'Regan,
Petri Piiroinen,
