Four PhD studentships in Computer Science, WALES

Swansea (Wales)

At least four new PhD studentships are expected to be available in Computer Science at Swansea 
University in 2011.

     Please apply by 31 May 2011 !

Two of the confirmed studentships are linked to specific research projects; the others will be 
awarded for PhD studies in any of our main research areas: Graphics, HCI and Theory.

     Overseas and EU candidates are eligible
     for some of the studentships !


EPSRC Doctoral Training Grants will fund up to two PhD studentships with an annual stipend of 
13,590 GBP plus UK/EU-level tuition fees.

Only UK-resident candidates are eligible for the full studentships; other EU-nationals are 
eligible for fees-only awards. See
for the precise residency requirements.

UNIVERSITY PROJECT STUDENTSHIP - VISUALISING THE PAST =====================================================

This joint PhD studentship with History represents an exciting opportunity to become involved with
a project exploring the ways in which digital technologies can be used to represent, explain, and 
interpret the past.  The 'Visualising the Past'project focuses in particular on how the past 
(historical and archaeological) can be visualised through graphics, visualisations, animations, 
and the use of hand-held mobile technologies.

Further details of this studentship are available at:,57506,en.php

Only UK/EU students are eligible. Computer Science candidates who wish to be considered for it 
should indicate so on the University application form, and contact Professor Matt Jones 
 before applying.

PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE COMPONENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS ==================================================

This PhD studentship is linked to the PLanCompS project, which will establish and test the 
practicality of a component-based framework for the design, specification and implementation of 
programming languages. The student is to carry out foundational research related to the semantic 
specification frameworks used in the project, and will be supervised by Professor Peter Mosses.

Further details of this studentship are available at:,58266,en.php

All candidates (UK, EU and overseas) are eligible. Candidates who wish to be considered for it 
should indicate so on the University application form, and contact Professor Peter Mosses 
 before applying. The 1-2 page supplementary personal statement submitted
with the application form should include a brief overview of any previous studies related to the
foundations of programming languages.


The recently-formed College of Science is expected to award additional PhD studentships in 2011. 
These will be announced separately at:


Potential candidates should have a first or upper-second (2:1) class honours degree (or equivalent)
in Computer Science or a closely related area, or a higher qualification.

To ensure consideration for an award, please apply to the University for admission as a PhD student
in Computer Science:

     Deadline: 31 May 2011

Applications received after the deadline may be disregarded in connection with awards of studentships.
Candidates are recommended to discuss possible topics with potential supervisors before applying. 
Separate application for an award is NOT required. Decisions concerning the studentships linked to
specific projects are expected by mid-June, and the rest by mid-July.

Information about tuition fees can be found at

General queries may be addressed to Dr Oliver Kullmann .

The Department of Computer Science in the College of Science at Swansea University offers an 
active and stimulating research atmosphere for PhD students, with internationally-leading research
groups in Graphics, HCI and Theory. In RAE 2008, 70% of the research submitted by the department 
was assessed as either world-leading or internationally excellent; only 12 Computer Science 
departments throughout the UK achieved a higher percentage of world-leading research. For further 
details of our research, see:
