Applications are invited for up to ten fully-funded PhD studentships in the School of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, starting on 1 October 2018.
The School of Computer Science is the 9th best school in the United Kingdom for research (based on REF 2014). We provide a great environment for research students with excellent facilities and supportive staff.
The topics for the studentships are open, but should relate to the interests of one of the School’s research groups: Agents Lab; Automated Scheduling, Optimisation and Planning; Computer Vision Lab; Functional Programming; Intelligent Modelling and Analysis; Mixed Reality Lab; Data Driven Algorithms, Systems and Design and Uncertainty in Data and Decision Making
The studentships are for three years and include a stipend of £14,553 per year and tuition fees, and are available to students of any nationality. Applicants are normally expected to have a first-class Masters or Bachelors degree in Computer Science or a related discipline, and must obtain the support of a potential supervisor in the School prior to submitting their application. Initial contact with supervisors should be made at least two weeks prior to the closing date for applications.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to SS-PGR-JC@nottingham.ac.uk
