The School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield

The SoMaS is home to experts in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and probability and statistics. Their research is helping to bring new understanding to the complex, intricate mathematical structures that the modern world is built on, with applications in disciplines ranging from finance to healthcare. Sheffield's pure mathematicians work on some of the most abstract mathematical challenges, in fields including algebraic geometry and number theory. We are an organiser of the Transpennine Topology Triangle, a key focal point for topology research in the UK. To complement the University of Sheffield’s strengths in bioscience, we also have a critical mass of expertise in mathematical biology, while other researchers apply their expertise to particle astrophysics and cosmology, studying the most fundamental laws of the universe. We host the internationally renowned Solar Physics and Space Plasma Research Centre, one of the UK's largest research groups in the field.

The London Mathematical Society

The London Mathematical Society (LMS) is the UK's learned society for mathematics. Its purpose is the advancement, dissemination and promotion of mathematical knowledge, both nationally and internationally. The Society carries out the following activities as part of its charitable objectives such as offering conference grants, workshops and training opportunities aimed at young mathematicians and early career researchers; sponsors and organises UK-wide scientific lectures and meetings for research mathematicians, together with an annual lecture series specifically aimed at the wider public; and represents mathematics research and education to government and other national policymakers and sponsors.

Heilbronn Institute

The Heilbronn Institute is a national centre supporting research across a range of areas of mathematics in the UK. It supports mathematics in the UK through Research Fellowships and sabbatical opportunities for mathematicians and data scientists, and through a programme of conferences, workshops and focused research activities.

Applied Probability Trust

An independent not-for-profit foundation for study and research in the mathematical sciences. The Applied Probability Trust serves the mathematical community by providing a publishing forum for research and review.

Galton Institute

The Galton Institute promotes and supports the scientific exploration of all aspects of human heredity through:

  • Education and communication with all interested individuals and groups.
  • Stimulating and informing public debate on the social and ethical implications and relevance to human well-being.
  • The study and understanding of the historical origins and development.

Royal Statistical Society

The Royal Statistical Society is one of the world’s leading organisations promoting the importance of statistics and data, and has done so since it was founded in 1834. The Society is a professional body for all statisticians and data analysts - wherever they may live - with more than 8,000 members in the UK and across the world.

Think Ahead

Think Ahead provide a framework for the continuous professional development of researchers at the University of Sheffield, supporting individual career ambitions in and beyond academia.

Doctoral Academy

The Doctoral Academy bring great minds together at the University of Sheffield.


MAGIC (Mathematics Access Grid Instruction and Collaboration) is a consortium that has been delivering high quality postgraduate teaching in Mathematics using live web-based video technology since 2007. Currently twenty one of the UK’s top research Universities share PhD-level mathematics courses using live web-based video conferencing. Lectures are delivered at one of the Universities and transmitted live to classrooms around the UK. Students are able to interact in real time with the lecturers by asking questions and joining discussions. So far hundreds of advanced mathematics students have benefitted from MAGIC courses.


Shell businesses in the UK are part of The Shell Group, a global group of energy and petrochemical companies. Their aim is to meet the energy needs of society, in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally viable, now and in the future.

International Biometric Society

The British Region of the IBS (International Biometric Society) was founded in 1948 by eminent statisticians and biologists of the time, including R.A. Fisher and J.B.S. Haldane. The British and Irish region (formed in 2006) covers the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and also The Republic of Ireland. The general objective of the society is to promote and extend the use of mathematical and statistical methods in pure and applied biological sciences.
