About the Programme
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Surrey is offering up to 6 fully funded PhD studentships across its core research areas in cybersecurity and cryptography, distributed and concurrent systems, artificial intelligence and machine learning, computational neuroscience and bioinformatics, amongst others.
Successful applicants will become part of a vibrant PhD community and will benefit from the strong research environment and high international visibility of the Department. Our researchers publish regularly in top conferences and journals and are renowned experts in their fields, developing innovative, practical solutions to real world problems. The Department has strong links with industry and active collaborations with academic institutions worldwide.
Each PhD studentship comes with a stipend of £16,000 per annum plus tuition fees covered for the duration of 3 years for UK/EU candidates. International candidates are welcome to apply but will need to cover the difference between the UK/EU and overseas fees.
