Two PhD studentships in Computer Science, Heriot-Watt University
------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------

Two PhD studentships are available in Computer Science at Heriot-Watt  University funded under the EPSRC Doctoral Training Awards. These pay  fees and a stipend at an EPRSC-set level, currently 12,600 GBP a year  for UK candidates, and fees only for EU candidates. Overseas  candidates are NOT eligible.
Potential candidates should have a Bachelors degree in Computer  Science or a cognate discipline at the 2(1) level or an equivalent  academic qualification. Please submit a CV (including the names of  two academic referees) and short (max 6-pages) research proposal in  one of the following specific areas relating to research groups in  Computer Science at Heriot-Watt. Further details of groups and their  members are available at http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/cs/resareas/index.htm

Computer Science at Heriot-Watt offers an active and stimulating  research atmosphere with more than 50 current PhD students organised  in five internationally-leading research groups. It gained a 4A in  the RAE 2001 and its researchers hold substantial funding from both  UKRC and the EU ? see http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/cs/resareas/grants.htm.

Research areas:

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
