University of Cambridge - Department of Computer Science and Technology

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Cambridge
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students, International Students
Funding amount: please see advert text.

The Project

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in display quality. The goal is to develop algorithms for automated assessment of the quality of electronic displays (OLED, LCD, and others) when presenting typical video content. The algorithms may combine machine learning techniques with models of displays and human vision to predict quality with respect to a given display (resolution, size, peak luminance, refresh rate and others) and viewing conditions (viewing distance, ambient light).

The successful candidate will be encouraged to work with the project partner, LG Electronics, including taking part in internships.

The results of the work will be made freely available as open-source projects.

The successful candidate will start the PhD programme in January 2023.

Candidates

We seek candidates with a strong background in Computer Science, Colour Science, and/or Image Processing (1st class honours degree or equivalent, although a Master's is particularly desirable) with a particular interest in colour, image processing and machine learning. The successful candidate must work with large quantities of data and possess excellent programming and software engineering skills.

Candidates need to meet all prerequisites for admission to the PhD in Computer Science (please refer to: https://www.cst.cam.ac.uk/admissions/phd).

This position is open to applicants from anywhere in the world; all university tuition fees will be paid by the project, and the successful candidate will receive a stipend at the UKRI rate (https://www.ukri.org/our-work/developing-people-and-skills/find-studentships-and-doctoral-training/get-a-studentship-to-fund-your-doctorate/), currently £17,668 per year.

The applicants are recommended to contact Dr Rafal Mantiuk (email rafal.mantiuk@cl.cam.ac.uk) before applying. Dr. Mantiuk will advise on the research proposal that needs to be submitted with the application.

Students wishing to pursue a PhD at the University of Cambridge are required to submit a short research proposal outlining the work they intend to carry out during the PhD. Candidates should get in touch with Dr Rafal Mantiuk (https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~rkm38/) to discuss this before applying, outlining their ideas for initial research directions.
