Women in Mathematical Sciences Lunch
All female students and staff in CoMPLEX have also been invited this year to Women in Mathematical Sciences taking place on Friday, 15th June. Lunch will be preceded by a talk from Professor Helen Wilson entitled Instabilities in Viscoelastic Fluids: a long story. If you are interested in attending this seminar between 11:00-12:00 on 15th June 2018. The registration is for the lunch only and the deadline of registration is 8th June 2018.
70% of students in our MRes Modelling Biological Complexity this academic year are female. CoMPLEX is now working to maintain a similar ratio also for future cohorts with a range of initiatives being rolled out shortly encouraging female candidates to apply to the programme .
