Fully Funded PhD’s available in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Advanced Computing
The School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering announced that they have three fully-funded PhD positions available in the area of AI, Machine Learning and Advanced Computing (AIMLAC) to start October 2021.
Funding will cover the full cost of tuition fees and an annual stipend of £15,285, plus additional funding is available for research expenses. The places are available for UK and overseas students.
Professor Jonathan Roberts (Bangor lead in the AIMLAC project) said “It is a great opportunity for three individuals to be trained in AI, Machine Learning and Advanced Computing. It is especially exciting this year, as we are offering three full-funded PhD positions, which are available to UK and overseas applicants. There is a huge need for skilled researchers in this area, and we are excited to be able to train the next generation of computing students. We research a broad range of topics in data analysis, deep learning, design and visualisation, and have applied our skills to a diverse range of environmental, scientific, and social datasets. Students will have access to supercomputing Wales and become part of a dynamic team. How about becoming a future leader in AI, Data and computing?”
The 4-year PhD scholarships will sit within the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Advanced Computing (CDT-AIMLAC, http://cdt-aimlac.org/) and the three students will be based at Bangor University, located within the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (CSEE).
Professor Roberts went on to say “There are seven project ideas available this year. The topics include immersive analytics in extended reality, AI in data-visualisation design, deep neural networks, data science, big data, AI in flood impact analysis and offshore wind systems. Candidates must identify their preference of at least two projects”. For full details of the project and application process, follow the link to the course details and apply by 12th February 2021.
The successful candidates will be required to attend taught components in year 1 (shared between the Universities of Aberystwyth, Bangor, Bristol, Cardiff and Swansea) and engage with placements (approximately six-months). Successful applicants will be registered at Bangor University, hosted by the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering throughout their period of study. Applicants should have at least a 2:1 degree, demonstrate excellent programming skills and have followed a suitable degree programme, e.g., in computer science, mathematics or electronic engineering (with substantial programming). Applicants must have an interest in AI, machine learning and advanced computing and excellent written and spoken English (IELTS 6.5).
