  Data Mining and Visualisation in High Dimensional Spaces
  Dr G DiFatta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mining and the visualisation of data in high dimensional feature spaces require the design of efficient algorithms. In high dimensional data spaces distance functions lose their usefulness and optimisation techniques, machine learning and data mining algorithms are very inefficient and ineffective.
  Deep Neuroevolution for Multi-task Learning
  Dr G DiFatta, Prof X Hong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an opportunity to apply for a PhD student position in Machine Learning. The overarching aim of this project is to contribute to theory and applications of machine learning with effective deep Neuroevolution algorithms and optimization methods.
  Applied Economics: What works for firms and the gender pay gap?
  Prof G Razzu, Dr C Singleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A vast literature has studied the determinants of gender pay gaps (see for reviews Altonji and Blank, 1999; Weichselbaumer and Winter-Ebmer, 2005; Blau and Kahn, 2017).
  Raising EAL learners’ attainment (REAL)
  Dr N Flynn, Prof S Graham
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Apply to the University of Reading for a place to study by Monday 20 January 2020. Apply for SeNSS studentship funding by 12.00pm on Monday 2 March 2020.
  Understanding learning experiences of autistic children in special needs schools through better understanding the indoor environment
  Dr T Tavassoli, Dr Z Luo
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Apply to the University of Reading for a place to study by Monday 20 January 2020. Apply for SeNSS studentship funding by 12.00pm on Monday 2 March 2020.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output).
  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  Reinforcement Learning based Recommender systems in the Era of Big Data
  Dr H Liang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The general aim of this project is to develop novel algorithms to discover new knowledge about users’ individual interests, preferences, sentiment and emotional status, and information needs from large scale data, for the purpose of facilitating recommender systems to provide better personalized services for users.
  New Materials for Thermal Battery Insulation
  Prof A.V. Powell, Dr R Grau-Crespo
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

"A fully-funded PhD studentship is available to work on new metal-oxide materials, with applications in solid-state thermal batteries.
  SCENARIO - A multi-scale modelling approach to bring urban climate and weather into built environment
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With rapid global urbanization, more than 50% population now live in cities, and it will be projected to be 70% by 2050. Our living environment is exposed to overheating risk due to the combination of climate extreme, i.e., heatwave and urban heat island.
  SCENARIO - Predicting the ecological and societal impacts of species on the move with climate change in the UK
  Dr N Pettorelli, Dr J Neumann, Prof K Norris, Dr L Shaffrey
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing recognition that the redistribution of species driven by a changing climate is creating profound challenges for societies and regional economies around the globe.
  SCENARIO - Understanding Acute Oak Decline using X-ray micro-tomography and leaf reflectance: linking reduced tree water transport capacity to changes in xylem and leaf cellular structure.
  Dr F Gerard, Dr G Barrett
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

First recorded in the UK in the early 1900’s, Acute Oak Decline (AOD) is widely recognised as a threat to native English oaks. Outbreaks of disease have gone through several historic and distinct episodes with the current, ongoing spread having started around 2002.
  SCENARIO - Love isn’t in the air: Assessing how air pollution interrupts insect sex pheromone signalling
  Dr R Girling
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As humans, the dominant sense with which we perceive the world is vision, in contrast many insects rely upon odours to perceive and interact with their environment.
  SCENARIO - Maximising the environmental benefits of gardens through optimal planting choices and understanding of occupants’ engagement
  Dr J Bishop, Prof M Lukac
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What we plant and how we manage our gardens can have a significant environmental impact. Domestic gardens cover 15-25% of area in most UK towns and cities, and recent research (1,2) links garden plant characteristics with provision of ecosystem services.
  SCENARIO - Climate change and harmful algal growth using laboratory experiments, satellite remote sensing and biogeochemical modelling
  Dr S Roy
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine harmful algae cause huge economic and ecological damage through the production of toxins and removal of oxygen from marine waters, affecting the marine wildlife and commercial aquaculture.
