  Big Data Analytics and Mining: investigating and testing distributed formulations of data mining algorithms that are suitable for the MapReduce paradigm and for other distributed computing approaches
  Dr G DiFatta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Big Data indicates very large and complex data sets that are difficult to process using traditional and sequential data processing applications.
  Towards “Precision Mining” of wastewater: Development of modular electrochemical systems for the in situ upcycling of acid mine drainage into functional nanoproducts (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Dr R Crane
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join a world-leading, cross-continental research team.
  Data Mining and Visualisation in High Dimensional Spaces
  Dr G DiFatta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mining and the visualisation of data in high dimensional feature spaces require the design of efficient algorithms. In high dimensional data spaces distance functions lose their usefulness and optimisation techniques, machine learning and data mining algorithms are very inefficient and ineffective.
  Mining Arguments from Natural Language Resources - Project ID SOC0015
  Dr S Wells
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Argument Mining is the automatic identification and extraction of argumentative structure from within real world textual resources such as Internet discourse, legal documents, or newspaper articles.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial and antiviral natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Big Data Mining for Fighting Dementia
  Dr G DiFatta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dementia describes a set of symptoms that can include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is a terminal neurodegenerative disease.
  Machine Learning; Data Mining
  Prof A Balinsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deep Learning is another name for a set of algorithms that use a neural network as an architecture.
  PhD Studentship - Elucidating the impact of prenatal antibiotic exposure on postnatal offspring performance in cattle: a data mining approach
  Dr M Velazquez, Dr M Forshaw
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2020, 3.5 years duration. Overview. There is a need to develop strategies for effective application of antibiotics in animal production to ameliorate the current threat of antimicrobial resistance affecting animal and human health.
  Data mining techniques for road safety policy making
  Dr H Evdorides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Road safety is associated with target setting at policy making lever. Such targets are usually associated with statistical analysis of accident data.
  Data-mining of materials-properties to implement ultra-precision process automation
  Prof D Walker, Prof T.L. McCluskey
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise optics underpin diverse applications, including remote-sensing from space, astronomy, laser-physics, medical-diagnostics, security & defense.
  Characterising the microstructure of composite explosives by mining X-ray CT scan datasets PhD
  Dr C Stennett, Dr R Vrcelj
Application Deadline: 12 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cook-off response of explosives of the same type varies quite markedly, even though current characterisation techniques (such as X-ray CT scanning) seem to show them to have the same properties.
  Full waveform seismic processing for mineral exploration
  Prof G Fabien-Ouellet
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The search for very deep deposits is becoming more and more important in mineral exploration. Due to the absence of surface indicators and the prohibitive cost of deep drilling, indirect methods, such as geophysical surveys, are essential in such context.
  Data-mining the Built Environment SEBE0032
  Dr BD D'amico, Dr FP Pomponi
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Given the current forecasts in global population to reach 9.7 billion by 2050 [1], a huge increase in construction activities is expected to follow on the same trend.
  Bioprospecting & biotechnology - mining the Polar microbial metagenome (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE2)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to exploit new and existing Polar microbial metagenomic libraries for bioprospecting and biotechnology. Using a wide range of diverse molecular techniques, we will research the distribution of particularly useful (e.g.
  Automated Big Data Analysis - (studied by Distance Learning)
  Dr A Starkey, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The amount of data in today’s world is ever increasing, and has even led to new terms describing this as in Big Data.
