EPSRC-funded PhD studentship in Computer Science, Heriot-Watt University  Deadline Jul 15th
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One studentship open to UK or EU candidates ONLY is available from October 2007 for three years. This covers fees plus a stipend at the EPSRC national minimum rate (12,600 GBP/yr for 2007-8).

Heriot-Watt University (www.hw.ac.uk), located on an attractive campus at the edge of Edinburgh, has a strong record in Computer Science research, receiving a 4A in the UK 2001 Research Assessment Exercise. Recent new appointments have enabled both consolidation of current activity in logics, type theory and intelligent systems and the development of new strong groups in synthetic characters and interactive narrative.

Potential candidates should have a research proposal in one of the following specific areas relating to the six research groups in Computer Science at Heriot-Watt. Please see http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/cs/resareas/index.htm for further details of research groups.

Research areas (see http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/cs/resareas/index.htm):

VIS&GE  synthetic characters, affective systems, interactive narrative, graphics textures, interactive educational systems

ULTRA  computerisation of mathematics, types and rewriting in programming languages and mobility calculi, types in logic and theorem proving

Intelligent Systems Lab  membrane computing, ambient intelligence,
artificial immune systems, artificial neural networks, evolutionary computing

Dependable Systems Group   formally-motivated computing, systems modelling, programming languages, automated reasoning, parallel/distributed/mobile systems

Biomedical informatics  distributed intelligent systems, biomedical ontologies,
representation/reasoning with spatio-temporal data, argumentation systems

To apply, please send your CV, research proposal and the names of two academic referees to: ruth@macs.hw.ac.uk with a short covering email which must indicate which research group and specified research area your proposal covers
