We are recruiting for a fully funded PhD Studentship which will be awarded as a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) to work with Dr Lijuan Wang in the School of Engineering at the University of Kent. The project is to assess the quality of waste plastic bales based on hybrid sensing and data driven modelling techniques. Extensive computational modelling and experimental tests in laboratory and industrial environments will be conducted. We offer a conducive research environment, where you would be part of a dynamic community, engaged in collaborative research, peer-support, and social activities. You will have many opportunities to collaborate with our current PhD students and researchers.
We are looking for an enthusiastic self-motivated candidate who can demonstrate academic excellence, outstanding research potential and ability to teach. Applicants with a first degree and a strong master’s degree in Electronic Engineering, Computer Engineering, Automation and Instrumentation or a related discipline, and ideally, be familiar with finite element modelling, signal processing, image processing and machine learning techniques are encouraged to apply.
Alongside completing your PhD programme of research and development, as a GTA you will normally be expected to work for 200 hours per annum in years 1 to 3, including teaching (maximum 96 contact hours per year) or demonstrating (maximum 130 contact hours per year) and related duties such as marking, preparation and examination. Further details of GTA terms and conditions are here:
The University of Kent is committed to equality, diversity, widening participation and inclusion and we endeavour to recruit students from all walks of life.
