University of York
Advanced Mathematical Biology
The MSc programme will provide insight into processes over a wide range of scales; from highly symmetric capsids (the cases that surround viruses) to the interactions of entire communities in oceans. Advanced statistical methods, systems biology and biological fluid dynamics will be covered, and there will be emphasis on applications to policy and industry throughout; this programme aspires to fill the language gap between technical mathematical concepts and real world applications in the biological and life sciences; students will gain a comprehensive grounding in cutting edge theory coupled to training in the subtleties of application.
Candidates are expected to have a good Honours undergraduate degree in either a mathematics based subject and a lively interest in applying mathematical techniques to biology or a biological-based subject with a significant quantitative bias.
Modules include: Bayesian statistics; biological fluid dynamics; ecological modelling; mathematical systems biology; mathematical virology; bioinformatics; conservation ecology and biodiversity; modelling with MATLAB; issues in modern biology; PDEs; stochastic processes; group project.
A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
