Mathematics Researcher

A mathematical researcher is anyone who uses his extensive knowledge of maths to solve problems or equations. He can use data, symbols, numbers, statistics etc. to achieve his desired goal according to the field he is working in. 

Career Options

  • - Today’s mathematical researchers will see their work form a close relationship with the relatively young subject of computer science. It has thus become a field which is now tangibly shaping modern life. The very new interest has generated a boom and there are lots of exciting opportunities for those looking to go for a PhD
  • - postdocs or faculty positions. The mathematical research occupation is small and thus there are relatively few mathematical researcher positions.

Educational Qualifications

  • - Class 10+2

Personal Skills

  • - Analytical skills: Mathematical researchers must determine the appropriate software packages and understand computer programming languages to design and develop new techniques and models. They must also be precise and accurate in their analysis. - Communication skills: Mathematical researchers must interact with
  • and propose solutions to
  • people who may not have extensive knowledge of mathematics. - Math skills: Mathematical researchers use statistics
  • calculus
  • and linear algebra to develop their models and analyses. - Problem-solving skills: Mathematical researchers must devise new solutions to problems encountered by scientists or engineers.

Courses to be pursued

  • - B.Sc. (Mathematics) - M.Sc. (Mathematics)
