  A new approach to modelling complex human/robot movement dynamics using techniques from machine learning
  Prof X Hong, Prof W Harwin, Prof R Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in sensing and communications have made it easy to obtain large sets of measurements about an entity, activity or event.
  Artificial Intelligence based analysis and exploration of medical, health and biobank data
  Dr V Ojha
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large number of forums offer medical and health-related data such as UK Biobank. In this project, we explore the potential of machine learning tools and techniques to efficiently solve the problem of a large domain.
  Deep learning for Image and Video Processing and Information Retrieval
  Dr V Ojha
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the age of large scale automation and data explosion, deep learning offers means to process unstructured image data and allow us to receive a large amount of information.
  Learning to Learn: Multi-Task learning, transfer learning and meta-learning
  Dr V Ojha
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-task learning, transfer learning, and meta-learning are three dimensions (sub-fields) of learning techniques, strategies and frameworks currently being investigated in machine learning communities.
  Multi-view approaches for content-based image clustering
  Prof X Hong, Dr H Wei, Prof J Ferryman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human and animal learning are naturally in the so-called semi-supervised mode of learning, i.e. with a limited teaching but more of self-training experiments.
  Reinforcement Learning based Recommender systems in the Era of Big Data
  Dr H Liang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

to be updated.
  How predictable are Arctic cyclones?
  Dr K Hodges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The area of proposed research is the predictability of Arctic cyclones.
  PhD in Equatorial waves and Tropical cyclons
  Dr K Hodges, Dr G-Y Yang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical Cyclones and equatorially-trapped waves are two major components of tropical weather systems. They are responsible for not only high impact weather events (such as extreme precipitation and high speed winds) in the tropics but also weather events in the extratropics through teleconnections.
  PhD in snow microphysics
  Dr C Westbrook
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation and evolution of ice particles (snowflakes) in clouds is an important problem in atmospheric physics. Ice particles in clouds influence the radiation budget of the earth.
  What are the impacts of future changes in Tropical Cyclone activity in the Arabian Sea
  Dr K Hodges, Dr R Schiemann, Dr AG Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arabian Sea Tropical Cyclones (TCs) occur once or twice per year on average. Yet they have significant impacts, through their intense rainfall, strong winds and storm surges, on the coastal regions of Oman, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and western India.
  Animats - neural culture controlled robots for closed-loop neuroscience
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will continue research started at the University of Reading on animats - robotic platforms controlled in real time by activity of biological neuron cultures and will investigate the methods for implementing efficient conditioning protocols.
  Machine learning for affective manipulation in music Brain Computer Interfaces
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"At the University of Reading we have created one of the first music Brain Computer Interfaces – a system that monitors the emotional states of the subject and as a result generates commands changing the nature of synthetically generated live music in order to drive the emotional state of the subject in the desired direction.
  Super-resolved Terahertz Microscopy for Cellular Imaging
  Dr J Bowen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The goal of this research project is to develop a new terahertz microscopy technique for the imaging of live cells with a spatial resolution of better than 1 micrometre.
  Computational design of metal-organic framework photocatalysts for solar fuel synthesis
  Dr R Grau-Crespo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are porous crystalline materials consisting of metal atoms or clusters connected by organic linkers.
  Novel applications of liquid MALDI MS for the analysis of large biomolecules
  Prof R K Cramer, Dr G Brown, Prof M Morris
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will investigate novel applications of liquid MALDI MS in the areas of hydrogen/deuterium exchange for structural biology, native mass spectrometry, top-down biomolecule analyses and enzyme assay and kinetics measurements.
