The School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering is offering a limited number of fully-funded PhD studentships.
These provide an excellent opportunity to study for a PhD at the giCentre. We are currently looking for candidates who are interested in topics across data visualisation and data science. We have a particular interest in visual data science that use visual approaches to doing data science. See our best papers and have a look at some of the PhD topics that we’d like to supervise… or propose your own. If you are interested, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org, either indicating which proposal interests you or giving us your own specific ideas.
giCentre is a Research Centre of about 15 academics, researchers and PhD students who are working at the forefront of information visualisation and visual data science. We contribute to the Department's hugely successful MSc in Data Science programme and have close working relationships with the other Research Centres in the department. We have a good working space and environment and welcome new researchers joining or otherwise interacting with our group.
These studentships will be competitive. You'll need a good degree in a related area (computer science or other quantitative subject). Your application will benefit from early interaction with us, so please do get in touch with as soon as you can, well before the studentship deadline of 7th March.
These studentship give recipients a tax-free stipend per year (currently £16,000) for three years and will pay UK/EU tuition fees. Successful candidates will also be able to be involved in teaching support. Full details are on the university website. Note that the 14 listed there are for across the whole university; we would only expect three to be available for our department.
