EPSRC Funded Studentships
Posted: 12th April 2012
The Department of Computer Science has several EPSRC funded scholarships available for full-time doctoral (DPhil) study to commence in October 2012. The department offers a vibrant research environment, supported by £30M of research grants from research councils, EU and industry. In the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008), 80% of our research was judged 4* (world leading) and 3* (internationally excellent). Applications are invited in the following areas:
Computational Biology: www.cs.ox.ac.uk/research/compbio/
Foundations, Logic and Structures: www.cs.ox.ac.uk/research/fls/
Information Systems: www.cs.ox.ac.uk/research/is/
Programming Languages: www.cs.ox.ac.uk/research/pl/
Software Engineering: http://web.comlab.ox.ac.uk/research/se/
Computer Security: http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/research/security/
There is also the opportunity for cross-disciplinary research in areas such as Linguistics, Biology, Medicine, Quantum Foundations and Quantum Computation.
Home students and EU students who have studied in the UK for the previous three years are eligible to apply for a full scholarship which is three and a half years’ duration and will pay fees and provide a stipend for living expenses of £13590 per annum.
EU students not studying in the UK are able to apply for a partial scholarship which will cover fees but will need to find additional funds for living expenses.
Applications are made online and information about how to apply, including requirements and links to the online prospectus and college information is available from: www.cs.ox.ac.uk/admissions/dphil/ and admissions criteria can be found here: http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/admissions/dphil/dphil-criteria.pdf
Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed.
