Project Description

The University of Hull invites applications for a fully-funded PhD scholarship in the area of deep learning and data analytics or artificial intelligence. Particular areas of interest are interactive systems and natural language processing, but invitations in any area of AI or evolutionary algorithms are invited.

The successful candidate will join an existing group of 6 PhD students working on related topics in machine learning and AI, including sentiment analysis, image classification, memory models, and evolutionary algorithms. The ideal candidate would complement the group’s current portfolio by either strengthening an existing research direction or adding a new AI-related direction. The student will be based in a shared lab space and work in the Big Data Analytics groups in the School of Engineering and Computer Science. Research can make use of the University’s new High-Performance Computing facility Viper, which is equipped with state of the art equipment for parallel processing, high-memory computation and GPUs, and is ranked amongst the top 7 in the North of England.

Applicants should have at least a 2.1 undergraduate degree in Computer Science or related discipline. Excellent programming skills and an interest in machine learning and AI are essential criteria. Experience in the area of machine learning and data mining is an advantage.

Full-time UK/EU PhD Scholarship will include fees at the ‘home/EU' student rate and maintenance (£14,777 in 2018/19) for three years, dependent on satisfactory progress.

International students will receive the international fees only and will need to find their own living expenses.

PhD students at the University of Hull follow modules for research and transferable skills development and gain a Masters level Certificate, or Diploma, in Research Training, in addition to their research degree.

Successful applicants will be informed of the award as soon as possible and by 30th August 2018 at the latest.
