The UTD Group of Nonlinear Analysis and Dynamical Systems is always enthusiastic in having motivated and well qualified undergraduate students, graduate students and postdocs as well as academic visitors. If you would like to know more about joining us please contact a group member with whom you might be interested in working.

 
Undergraduate research opportunities
 

Our group is committed to providing motivated undergraduates with the opportunity to be involved with research in nonlinear analysis, differential equation and dynamical systems. We welcome inquiries from students interested in joining the group and gaining valuable research experience through participating in our ongoing projects and/or developing their own research ideas. The goal of undergraduate mentoring in the group of Nonlinear Analysis and Dynamical Systems is to expose students to the entire research process, from proposal to publication. The student can usually enroll into an Independent Study Course MATH 2v90 . Here v=3 assumes that the student will be working about 10 hours/week on the project.

Graduate research opportunities
 

We are always interested in working with bright, motivated, graduate students that have high expectations of themselves and wish to pursue a scientific training in nonlinear analysis and dynamical systems. Prospective students can get a good sense of the research ongoing in the group, and the basis for our research program by looking through the material available on the personal webpages of our group members and by reading through some of our publications.

Typically, funding for graduate students may take the form of Teaching Assistantships through the Department of Mathematical Sciences, depending on funding availability. Application deadline is typically January 15 (Admissions), but all interested students should contact a group member prior to applying to the department.

           All students are encouraged to seek extramural funding to support their research and here are some sources:
