Machine Learning PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Non-European Students

We have 278 Machine Learning PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Non-European Students

A PhD in Machine Learning focuses on the application of mathematical and statistical models to find patterns in data. You'll be asked to identify, model, and evaluate the systems that can be used to improve the performance of computer systems.

What's it like to do a PhD in Machine Learning?

Traditionally, Machine Learning is divided into different subfields. You'll have the option of choosing from popular fields of study such as Computer Vision and Language Processing.

Some popular Machine Learning subfields are:

Computer Vision

You can opt for a PhD in Computer Vision if you're interested in developing computer systems that can analyse and interpret digital images and video. You'll likely be asked to research methods to improve object classification, image registration, object tracking, and object recognition.

Language Processing

If you're interested in a PhD in Language Processing, you'll be looking at ways to improve the way computers interpret, process, and generate language. You'll be researching methods and techniques to process, store, and search large text collections. You may also be asked to research methods to improve natural language processing.

Machine Learning also has application in other fields such as finance, healthcare, manufacturing, and retail. However, the above are the most popular areas of research.

A PhD in Machine Learning will require you to come up with a research proposal to be defended in an oral exam during your viva. Your research will involve experimentation and observation that may culminate in a publishable paper at the end of your project.

PhD in Machine Learning entry requirements

A PhD in Machine Learning requires a minimum of a 2:1 undergraduate degree in a related subject. You may also be asked to show that you have the necessary pre-entry experience in computer science.

PhD in Machine Learning funding options

A PhD in Machine Learning will most likely have funding attached, meaning if you're awarded a studentship, your tuition fees will be covered and you'll receive a monthly stipend.

PhD in Machine Learning careers

Machine Learning models form the basis of many technologies we interact with every day. A PhD in Machine Learning will equip you with the skills to enter a wide range of careers in industries such as finance, healthcare, retail, and defence. You may also choose to continue your research and aim for a career in academia.

Identification of drivers of somatic evolution using machine learning

This Barts Charity funded project will commence in April 2024 and has funding for 4 years. The successful candidate will be based at Barts Cancer Institute, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry (FMD), Charterhouse Square in the City of London. Read more

Building an AI-based Digital Twin for the Milky Way

This project aims to build a prototype for a digital twin of the Milky Way, using artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, and a combination of real data from Galactic surveys (e.g., astrometric data from the Gaia satellite and chemical abundances from APOGEE and GALAH). Read more

Artificial intelligence techniques to speed up the realistic simulation and full waveform inversion of ground penetrating radar data.

Ground penetrating radars (GPR) are used in a many diverse applications. These range from near-surface geophysics investigations, concrete inspection, utility network detections, landmine detection and even planetary exploration using rovers on the Moon and Mars that utilise GPR technology.

Collaborative probabilistic machine learning

We develop probabilistic machine learning methods for helping other agents make better decisions, ultimately human agents in ongoing applications in science and engineering. Read more

Robust Computational Methods for High-Dimensional Imaging

This project aims to develop new computational algorithms to optimize the acquisition and processing of single-photon data and enable fast imaging in extreme conditions using statistical and learning based approaches.   The project is funded for 3.5 years for international students and a ~£17K annual stipend. Read more

Development of an Adaptive Predictive Maintenance Framework for Industrial Systems

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD position to start in February 2024. About the position. The School of Engineering at University of Sunderland, UK is pleased to announce a fully funded (tuition fee waiver + monthly stipend) PhD position. Read more

Precision Medicine DTP - Genetic colocalisation across disease to identify drug repurposing candidates and risk of patient co-morbidities

  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
Background. Discoverying new drugs is expensive, time intensive and fraught with failure at all stages (1). An attractive alternative, with much lower costs and faster development timelines, is to find new applications for already approved drugs, a process known as drug repurposing or drug reallocation. Read more

Precision Medicine DTP - Dissecting mitotic phosphatases network and the effect of molecular glues to combat cell proliferation

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Background. Many cancers are associated with an alteration in protein function and regulation. While protein phosphatases represent potential therapeutic targets because of their essential role in cell signalling, survival and cell division, they usually do not have any pockets for inhibitors.
