The School of Physics, Engineering and Technology brings physicists and engineers together to push the frontiers of knowledge, foster innovation and meet the challenges facing society. Our aim is to deliver world-leading research in both fundamental and applied areas whilst developing new technologies.
As a School, equality, diversity, and inclusion are central to our culture. We aim to ensure that there is a supportive and egalitarian culture at all levels and across all staff groups and offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, staff engagement forums, campus facilities and services to support staff. We are proud to hold Juno Champion and Athena Swan bronze awards, which recognise our commitment to creating an equitable and inclusive environment in which staff and students can thrive.
A cross-disciplinary team of researchers from the Universities of York, Cardiff, Manchester, Stirling, and Southampton are working together on an EPSRC-funded project, Edgy Organism, to develop a novel end-to-end neuromorphic design approach and efficient hardware architecture based on spiking neural networks (SNNs). The project aims to develop novel computing solutions for the defence and security sector, that can autonomously and reliably detect illegal or harmful activities in crowded public spaces, with minimum intrusion of personal space and privacy.
We are recruiting a team of outstanding researchers from Edge Computing, AI/ML, and Neuromorphic Engineering, to work with us on achieving Edgy Organism project’s ambitious objectives.
