About the Project

Heriot-Watt University has now created scholarship opportunities in the School of Engineering & Physical Sciences for 2021-22. 

Requirements

All applicants must have or expect to have a 1st class MChem, MPhys, MSci, MEng or equivalent degree by Autumn 2021. Selection will be based on academic excellence and research potential, and all short-listed applicants will be interviewed (in person or via Microsoft Teams). Most of these scholarships are only open to UK/EU applicants and for

students who meet residency requirements set out by EPSRC

https://epsrc.ukri.org/skills/students/guidance-on-epsrc-studentships/eligibility/  For some projects, applications may be accepted for exceptional overseas applicants.

Multiple PhD positions are available with Heriot-Watt’s Biomedical and Astronomical Signal Processing group (BASP) on any combination of the following aspects of computational imaging: (i) development of estimation and uncertainty quantification algorithms for large-scale imaging inverse problems, at the interface of deep learning, optimisation, and Bayesian inference frameworks, (ii) their application in either astronomy or medicine (e.g. radio-astronomical, magnetic resonance, or ultrasound imaging), (iii) their parallel high performance computing implementation. We are looking for outstanding candidates with a First-Class Master’s Degree in electrical engineering, applied mathematics, physics, computer science, or a related discipline. The PhD students will be fully integrated into BASP under the supervision of Prof. Wiaux, with possible co-supervision by partners from the University of Edinburgh, the EPFL in Lausanne, CentraleSupélec in Paris, and some of the major astronomical or medical imaging centres in the world.
