MACS PhD Teaching Assistant Scholarship, Heriot-Watt University


Contact: r.s.aylett@hw.ac.uk

The School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University invites applications 
from excellent candidates for a number of PhD Scholarships in the Department of Computer Science.

Whilst research proposals may address any aspect of Computer Science or Information Systems, areas
in which the School has particular strengths can be found at http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/cs/resareas/
index.htm.

Candidates for these scholarships are expected to hold, or be about to be awarded, at least an 
upper second class Honours degree or equivalent in Computer Science or a related subject. 
Candidates whose first language is not English are expected to have an IELTS score of at least 6.5
or equivalent. All short-listed candidates will be interviewed.

The scholarships are conditional upon the student agreeing to perform up to 250 hours per annum of 
duties in support of teaching as requested by the Head of Computer Science. Note that these hours
will not be distributed evenly throughout the year and may well require periods of up to two weeks
working full time. Appropriate training will be provided and the time taken for this is included 
in the 250 hours.

The scholarships will pay full fees plus a maintenance stipend of 12,940 per annum for three years.
The stipend has been set at a rate that matches the normal EPSRC studentship stipend and will be 
adjusted for cost of living each year. The maximum 250 hours of work has also been set so as not 
to exceed the EPSRC guideline of 6 hours work per week.

Interested candidates are invited to either contact one of our research groups or staff for an 
informal discussion.

How to apply
Please send a CV and the names/emails of two academic referees to:
r.s.aylett@hw.ac.uk and j.maxwell@hw.ac.uk Applications should include a short research proposal 
(max 4 pages) giving an initial view of the project the applicant has in mind. A short guide to 
writing a research proposal is available from the CS PhD Admissions Officer 
(email r.s.aylett@hw.ac.uk) on request.

***DEADLINE*** Applications should be submitted by 5pm Friday 3rd June.
