  Attentional control of visual short-term memory resources
  Dr J Grange, Dr S spotorno
Application Deadline: 5 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Visual short-term memory (vSTM) refers to the storage of perceptual information lasting on the order of seconds. It supports many cognitive operations, including perception and visual attention.
  Characterising the role of functional knowledge in real-world scene processing: Temporal dynamics and relationships with scene’s contents
  Dr S spotorno, Dr J Brooks
Application Deadline: 5 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viewers are highly proficient in processing real-world scenes and this is a key ability in everyday life. However, what information is gathered and represented from a scene, and when, is still not fully understood.
  Evolutionary Robotics: using evolution to generate robust robot control systems
  Dr Adam Stanton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolutionary Robotics has a long history as an alternative to mainstream approaches to the design of robot morphologies and control systems.
  New methods for computing exact coherent structures responsible for cascades of energy in fluid turbulence
  Dr D Lucas
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major challenge in the field of fluid mechanics exists in understanding the complex nonlinear behaviour of turbulence. This problem has an enormous number of engineering and geophysical applications.
  Person Perception in the context of crowd events
  Dr S K Laurence, Dr S spotorno, Dr C Stott
Application Deadline: 5 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protecting crowded places is an increasingly important part of modern day policing. The proposed project will use cognitive theory of face recognition to help understand and enhance how police officers identify individuals within crowds that pose threats.
  POLYMOD: Designer Polysaccharide Modification
  Dr G J Miller
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will involve the design and assembly of designer polysaccharides. You will be involved in conceiving and synthesising modified carbohydrate building blocks which will be utilised in conjunction with an industrial partner, Croda, to advance access to next-generation carbohydrate biomaterials.
  Principled agent-based simulation
  Prof F A C Polack
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agent-based simulation can be used to model the dynamics of natural systems. each agent represents a low-level component (e.g. a cell), and the finished simulator aims to model the higher level dynamics (e.g.
  Progenitor evolution of gravitational-wave emitting black-holes
  Dr R Hirschi
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The era of Gravitational-Wave Astronomy (GWA) opened in the last few years with the first detections from the LIGO and VIRGO observatories.
  Semi-supervised and Unsupervised Deep Learning for Human Behaviour Understanding in Short Videos Clips.
  Dr B Mandal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project the PhD research student needs to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the emerging semi-supervised and unsupervised deep learning networks for analysing videos.
  Smartwatches and Activity Trackers – Technology Assessment and Data Science
  Dr S Woolley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wearable technology and data science are active and important areas of research. In particular, there is growing interest in the use of wearables for positive outcomes in health and well-being applications.
