  PhD Opportunities in Fusion. Training the next generation of fusion scientists….

Funding Type

PhD Type

Training the next generation of fusion scientists…. Fusion has the potential to meet our energy needs in a sustainable way, with minimum impact on the environment.
  Beam-beam and crab cavity proton dynamics for the LHC luminosity upgrade
  Dr R Appleby
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD project, starting October 2020. The luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider will increase the delivered instantaneous luminosity by an order of magnitude to search for new, rare, particles and perform precision measurements of the standard model of particle physics.
  Experimental Demonstration of Terahertz-Driven Particle Acceleration
  Dr D Graham, Dr R Appleby, Dr S Jamison, Dr G Burt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in the use of laser-generated terahertz (THz) radiation sources to reduce the scale of today’s particle accelerators with the ultimate dream of producing compact laboratory-sized machines for applications ranging from versatile x-ray sources to medical treatment.
  Automatic Music Generation via Deep Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Music appears as an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time, which is an ultimate language for human beings.
  Contextualised Multimedia Information Retrieval via Representation Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multimedia Information Retrieval (MIR) is an important research area in AI that aims at extracting semantic information from multimedia data sources including perceivable media such as audio, image and video, indirectly perceivable sources such as text, bio-signals as well as not perceivable sources such as bio-information, stock prices, etc.
  Deep Learning for Temporal Information Processing
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temporal information process covers a broad class of learning problems where knowledge can be acquired from data of a sequential order, e.g.
  Ensemble Strategies for Semi-Supervised, Unsupervised and Transfer Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traditionally there are two main paradigms in machine learning, supervised vs. unsupervised learning.
  Information Component Analysis via Deep Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As their prominent characteristics, perceptual data often convey the mixing information, which often results in the inadequate performance for a specific perceptual information processing task due to the interference of irrelevant information components.
  Machine Learning and Cognitive Modelling Applied to Video Games
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Video games have been viewed as an ideal test bed for the study of AI. However, most of the academic work in this area focused on traditional board and card games where limited AI techniques have been tested.
  Multi-task Learning and Applications
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In traditional machine learning, a learning system can be trained to deal with a specific single task, while human is able to complete multiple tasks with the same learning strategy.
  Zero-Shot Learning and Applications
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Zero-shot learning refers to a novel paradigm on learning how to recognise new concepts by just having a description of them. For example, zero-shot learning works on a setting of solving a classification problem when no labelled training examples are available for all classes, which are divided into two class subsets.
  (iCASE Award) Development of Adaptive and Scalable Electro-Optical Surfaces
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Prof C Kocabas
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The primary aim of this project is to develop large-scale adaptive optical surfaces that can dynamically change their IR and visual appearance.
  Mapping the radiation tolerance and local mechanics of nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessel steels
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr E Jimenez-Melero, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to evaluate the impact of the local microstructure on the radiation damage and mechanical performance of neutron-irradiated Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPV) steels at relevant reactor conditions and in the bulk microstructure, with sufficient spatial resolution and chemical sensitivity to identify local changes in chemistry, phases, microstructure and plasticity/hardening.
