PhD Scholarships

  • Date07 November 2018

Two fully-funded PhD studentships are available in Artificial Intelligence.


The research areas of interest include (but are not limited to) planning, knowledge representation & reasoning, natural language processing, explanation, autonomous control and learning (stochastic, deep or symbolic). We expressly encourage applicants interested in applications that cut across some of these technical areas and wish to develop AI techniques in the context of interdisciplinary research for domains, such as healthcare, productivity, sustainability, transportation, and commerce.

The studentships are available from January 2019. They are for three years and include a stipend of circa 16,777GBP per year plus a Home/EU fee waiver. The supervision teams for the studentships will be interdisciplinary but the lead supervisor will be from the Department of Computer Science. Applicants are expected to have obtained a good degree in Computer Science or a cognate discipline, preferably at an MSc level and with a strong component in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Intelligent Systems or similar.

How to apply

Formal applications should be sent to and include your CV (including contact details of one academic referee), a 1-2 page letter outlining your qualifications for the outlined areas, and any relevant academic transcripts. Applications will be reviewed on a weekly basis, with an initial deadline of 26th November 2018.
