Warsaw Doctoral School of Mathematics and Computer Science (WDSMCS) is a part of Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences. It is led jointly by University of Warsaw (UW) and Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IMPAN). The mission of WDSMCS is the continue of the 100-years old tradition of Warsaw School of Mathematics.
This mission is realized by maintaining the highest research standards in mathematics and computer science and preparing our PhD students to independent research work. Each student works on an individual PhD project under the supervision of researchers of UW and IMPAN. Moreover, the students attend courses taught both by researchers of these institutions and invited external experts (see PhDOpen and Simons semesters)
The education lasts 4 years. It includes obligatory classes (no more than 300 hours in total during the whole period of education) and the implementation of an individual research program, carried out under the supervision of a supervisor.
During the four years of study, each PhD student receives a scholarship in the amount of PLN 2371.70 gross for the first two years of studies (before the mid-term evaluation) and PLN 3653.70 gross in the next two years after the mid-term evaluation. Supplement for people with disabilities: PLN 711.51.
Compulsory insurance is deducted from the scholarship amount and it’s reduced (by 11%).
