The University College Cork School of Mathematical Sciences Internship Programme is a funded summer research programme intended for students in mathematics who are in their late undergraduate studies (enrolled as 2nd year, 3rd year students). This is an exciting opportunity for students who would like to gain first-hand experience of life as a researcher in the School of Mathematical Sciences at University College Cork. These internships will be titled either Boole Internship, or 1951 Internship, depending on whether the project is mathematical, or statistical, in nature.Read more

Niamh McGrath is a 4th year Financial Mathematics and Actuarial Science student who was recently awarded a Johnson and Johnson WiSTEM2D scholarship which supports women in their careers in STEM2D disciplines. Niamh is a member of the WiSTEM society since first year and is currently the Finance Officer for the society for the academic year 2021/2022. In addition to the bursary prize Niamh will work with a Johnson and Johnson mentor honing her leadership skills in additon to internship opportunities within the company.
The aim of WiSTEM is to proactively empower women interested in and/or studying STEM courses to realise their full potential in college and their careers in order to tackle the under-representation of women at senior levels across STEM.
In conversation with Niamh "the ideas, support and passion of the WiSTEM2D programme have been a huge inspiration to me through my entire college career so it is an incredible honour to have been selected to this prestigious programme. Being a member of the WiSTEM society has provided me with a platform to promote Women in STEM2D fields throughout my studies in UCC.
The School is incredibly honoured to be part of this successful programmes with Johnson & Johnson and their support of women in pursuit of STEM2D studies and careers.

Analysis: what exactly causes dead water to slow down sea-going vessels? Hint: it's not sea-monsters or supernatural forces20 Jan 2020
Dead water is a term which describes the fascinating nautical phenomenon whereby the speed of a vessel slackens suddenly, and dramatically, with no apparent cause observable from the surface of the ocean. Descriptions of the phenomenon can be traced back to the early seafarers of antiquity, for whom it must have been a very frightening and mysterious experience indeed. This is reflected in the quite outlandish (and unscientific) range of causes they put forward to explain dead water: sea-monsters, submarine magnetic rocks, supernatural forces and hordes of fish sticking to the ship’s body (an explanation attributed to the Roman-era Pliny the Naturalist).Read more
