Candidates interested to pursuing a PhD are invited to apply for this PhD studentship in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick. This scholarship covers full Home/EU fees and a stipend payable at current UK Research Council rates for 3.5 years. Outstanding overseas students are also encouraged to apply, however a gap in the tuition fee will need to be filled.
The research topic falls under the general theme of security. We are particularly interested in next-generation electronic payment over a blockchain but we are very flexible with the specific topic. Our previous research has been largely driven by tackling real-world security problems and some of our research outputs have been adopted by the industry and deployed at a large scale. We expect the student to pursue a research topic that really matters in the real world and that matches their interest and background.
The Computer Science Department at Warwick is a leading department in the UK. In the 2014 Research Evaluation Framework (REF) which all UK universities participated in, Warwick computer science was ranked the 1st in terms of research output, 2nd in terms of impact and 2nd overall. It is also highly regarded for its research culture, informal environment, excellent students, and beautiful campus.
Ideally, candidates should have an excellent degree in computer science, engineering or related disciplines, solid mathematical background, excellent programming skills and a desire to tackle real-world problems. Candidates are advised to apply as early as possible.
For informal inquiries about this studentship, please contact Professor Feng Hao, firstname.lastname@example.org, enclosing a CV and a short description of your relevant background and interests within the research subject.
